Derby World Wargames 2016

Dean, Ninjasuarus and myself have just come back from Derby World Wargames at Castle Donnington. Hosted by Warlord Games, KR Multicases and the Derby Wargames Associates, it was held in a massive hall at the famous racing track. None of us had been before and we were blown away by the sheer size of the event and amount of traders there. as we are regulars at Triples, I was half expecting the Sunday afternoon to be a bit quiet as it usually is at Triples these days. But I couldn't be more wrong! The place was heaving when we arrived and still was when we left at about half past two. A total contrast the to Sunday afternoon ghost town that Triples is...

I had my camera and took a bunch of photos of the demo and participation games that were on display. I am sure I missed a few, but this picture dump gives you a good idea of the games on offer. I can't remember what everything was, so they are not labelled.





















And my swag. I did go intending not to buy anything, but I came away with a miscast trench section from Early War Miniatures for £2, a Judge Giant figure from Foundry, two SU-100s and three SU-152s from Zvezda and 21 second-hand 28mm figures that will do as street punks for Judge Dredd!


It was a great day out and definitely one to put in the diary for next year! Well worth the hour's drive that it took to get there.

  2. Nicely done. I was due to go, had booked an over-nighter, but my back is just giving too much jip. The Zvezda stuff looks nice and is less than half the price of the Gale Force Nine singles.

    1. Thanks Norm, that's a shame, at least you've seen some pictures from there! Yeah, I didn't even know Zvedza did the SUs, so that was a nice surprise!

  3. Nice. I had been wondering what random cyberpunk figs would be useful as generic bloc denizens for your JD project, good find!

    1. Thank you, I am not sure of the manufacturer and their a few different ones, but I'll post photos as I paint them so someone may be able to tell me who makes them!
