Bugle Call Convention - Adelaide 2012I seem to have missed a few weeks of posting updates to the blog, so I now have a massive backlog of finished things to be posted, some updates on the computer development, and a tonne of new projects to get into.
Lets start with Bugle Call then ...
A gaming convention held over the weekend of June 10-11th in lil old Adelaide.
Well done to Martin from www.littlesoldiers.com.au for organising this, and it was impressive to see such a great turnout of displays and visitors.
I will keep the text pretty small in this post, since blogger is really starting to bog down for some reason, and making extended editing very difficult. grrrr ! Crashed the browser twice already - annoying.
|Mal Wright put on a great FIW demo game using Carnage and Glory II, and his own handmade terrain.|
|Back behind the scenes - a French field surgery doesnt seem to having much success :)|
|French line advance from their protected positions to put pressure on the fortress.|
|Carnage and Glory II plays really well at this scale of game - fast and accurate, its a good solution for a game of this size I think.|
|A number of re-enactors were here as well. I saw Captain America, some Imperial Stormtroopers, and the girl from the cover of Incursion all wondering about the displays.|
|Big range of SotTR figures on display from littlesoldiers.com.au|
|Zombies ! Zombies with GasMasks !|
|A captivating display of Bushido figures from littlesoldiers.com.au. Looks like a really interesting concept.|
|Nice clean figures - very cool display.|
|A wise Bushido elder ... with spider monkey mascot, riding on tortoise.|
|Kung Fu nuns.|
|Must read up more on this system - I am really liking the ideas in these figs.|
|Especially this guy :)|
|Good to see Incursion getting some exposure.|
|A DBA campaign was in progress, hosted by Group North. Excellent production values here, and backed up by what looked like a campaign manager happening on the laptop. Great effort from Grp Nth.|
|The Federation strikes back !|
|Excellent fleet command module ... monstrously huge if you compare it to an Enterprise class starship docking below.|
|A demo game and figures from an expansion set from Warmachine.|
|There is a gaming group that meets in town on Tue nights.|
|Great job on these.|
|Battle .... thing ?|
|I like the treatment of the tusks - thats a good study of the colour transition. Well done !|
|Human hero to battle the WarMachines.|
|Lots of demo games in progress at Bugle Call.|
|More 28mm goodness.|
|Even more 28mm Goodness. Very popular scale.|
|I had to get some good shots in of this display .. enjoy the eye candy here.|
|Zeppelin aircraft carrier ... nice !|
|Giant ocean going sea squid|
|Thomas, Henry, Gordon ... and Sooty the Traction BattleCruiser.|
|This is of course a .... ah ... I have no idea. But Im loving the colour scheme. Brilliant !|
|Excuse my poor use of lighting in this photo - a quick snap of some Victoria Lamb Minis. Victoria Lamb herself was there in person ....|
|Quick fly back to the FIW table - a blurry action shot as Indians storm the Fotress walls. These are BlueMoon storming parties, another nicely put together work from Mal.|
|In the Wow ! Department - Nic bought along some of the new AB's|
|Well worth getting. You now have 3 years till the 200th anniversary of Waterloo - so even if you are not into Napoleonics, you still need to get some of these and start painting :)|
|Excellent stuff. You wont believe they are 15s unless you see them in the flesh.|
|A last quick and blurry snapshot before the camera runs out of juice. Eureka 28mm Beowulf Saxons.|
Hope you liked that.
Now I better post this before blogger crashes again and wipes out my captions !
