Well it looks like I can be the first to congratulate Peter and all his little helpers for the great day out that JoS2017 was.  Lots of 6mm lovelinesss and friendly knowledgeable people. Do you think the one true scale attracts a better class of gamer?  Anyway, I was so busy on my own game I really didn't have time to take photos, or to see everything that was on display. So over to you, Baccanalians, to provide your stories and photos of games seen, played in, goodies bought, people chatted to.  I thought it was brilliant, what about you?

Well I had a good day on stall, but didn't get to see many of the games other than the cold war one right in front of me.

Here is a write-up and photos from one of the games ;-). It is the Battle of Messines game, which commemorated my paternal grandfather's involvement in the battle:

OMG. That looks absolutely amazing

Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

I will be doing a show report in full next week, but in short; visitor numbers UP, number of traders UP, number of games UP.   Everyone I have talked to was very happy with the event and I was so pleased with how friendly and welcoming the atmosphere proved to be.   A great show.

Best show of the Year!


Its great to be able to have time to talk to people both traders and demonstrators. A couple more traders and it will be close to perfect.

Thanks to all involved.

I've just posted the first part of the review of the 2017 games on the Baccus News section.   Those of you where were there will have your memories jogged, and those of you where were not will be kicking themselves repeatedly..
