I'd heard nothing about the Partizan show being moved to a Marquee area outside the main building this year, so it was quite a surprise when we arrived. A relief as it turns out, because one thing I remember from previous attendance was having to navigate those small side rooms and needing to keep a can of deodorant handy due to the usual heave of people on what was typically a warm day. It was still pretty hot inside the tented area, but at least you could lift the side flaps up (as some did) or take a dozen steps outside to sit under the shade of a tree. The layout was such that all the traders were placed around the edges of the Marquee with games in the centre. Great stuff!
Next up was a stunning zombie skirmish game themed on the Shaun of the Dead film. A really lovely set-up using a city-scape with some stunning detail. I loved the use of the crashed Matchbox cars!
Also on show was this awesome Imperial Roman game by Simon Miller and Big Red Bat Enterprises. The river and bridge, not to mention the beautiful figures, made this a complete marvel.
Finally a quick mention has to go to the guys from Lincoln Miniature Warfare Society who were running a very engaging DBM game on a few small sections of MDF. Proof once again that you don't need huge amounts of space and terrain to create something fun!
