For the moment, here is a brief post on the show.
Another very enjoyable day at the Phalanx Show, the Spartans do organise a very welcoming show. The B & B seemed to be doing a brisk trade, as did the traders. A good attendance, with a fair sprinkling of 'family' parties. Perhaps not as many demo games as in previous years, but a good range of periods were covered. Next to the Lance & Longbow was a 15mm game of Zorndorf from the Mailed Fist group
Manchester Wargames had a Black Powder Peninsular game, "3rd day at Fuentes D'Orono"
There was also a colonial game
We ran a 'Lion Rampant' game based on the Battle of Chesterfield, 1266. During the day we ran our game three times, with each side winning once. The final game was a draw, with both armies fought to a standstill. We did get some willing 'volunteers' to participate and the rules worked well with the newcomers picking up the game quickly.
