The Pudsey show has been our last outing of the 'season' for a good number of years. Usually the Lance & Longbow Society has a stand, but unfortunately, this year we left out application too late and the hall was fully booked. Anyway, we set off across the Pennines looking for those Christmas bargains. The show was well attended, but it seemed that the range of traders was not as broad. Certainly, I was unable to buy the 30mm x 30mm bases I needed for the SYW cavalry. The B & B was well patronised and had a good range of items on offer and I picked up a copy of Bowden's "Napoleon's Gande Armee" for a very reasonable price.
Will took some pictures of a Battlegroup Overlord game, but it was a game by the Furness Warlords which caught my eye. It featured the Battle of Lake Erie from the War of 1812. All the models (1/300 scale) are scratch built and a jolly good job has been made of them.
At the other end of the wargaming scale was this strategic level game of WWII
I think this was the Sabin game I saw at the Fiasco show a couple of years ago.
Overall a satisfactory day out, another book for the collection and a chance to catch up with fellow gamers; shame about those bases though.
