Workshops at Derby World Wargames

October 3, 2010

This weekend we were in Derby, at the Old Glory World Wargames show held at the University of Derby.

With over 60 traders, tournaments, demonstration games and participation games this is a fun packed event for gamers of all ages. On the Sheffield Irregulars stand this year we were offering free basing workshops – urban rubble, woodland flowers and blood and gore effects.

Each of these bases could be made with a few simple materials in just a couple of minutes, and they proved popular with young and old a like all weekend long. The show judges approved as well, and we won the prize for best participation display!

Platoon Britannica

June 23, 2009

Still recovering a little from the weekend, where the Platoon Britannica meet up was held at Warhammer World in Nottingham.

This was the 2nd PB meet up and looks set to have a third next year.

Robin and Ben from PB set up the event to encourage the British painting community to support each other and create a real community dimension to the hobby, especially in the competitive field – where this seems to be lacking (Golden Demon in particular).

With painters coming from all over the country, as far away as Scotland for the event it was really a great meeting of talent. Many people had only ‘met’ previously online, so this was a chance to see both the painter, and their models in real life.
