Last weekend I headed up to Salute with some mates, and took a few photographs on the way...
This paraglider was seen somewhere over the M5.
A very wide load, the M4 was miraculously clear once we were past it:
Landmark time on the edge of London:
Now on to the day itself! Simple Miniatures were running Infinity and Malifaux demos on some lovely tables, although I thought that the Infinity table was frighteningly open:
Plus their awesome Malifaux tables:
Warlord put on an enormous Celt v. Roman siege, just the kind of massive game I'd expect from Stallard & Priestley.
As much as I might like or dislike Battlefront Games, their Gallipoli table was one of the stars of the show:
A special shout-out to Chris Clayton of Gigantic Miniatures, he couldn't make it but posters for his Masterclass sessions were plastered across the place:
A pile of dead Space Marines near the Black Library stand:
WWI trenches and dogfights:
The Frother's excellent Call of Cthulheudo table, I like to think of it as the 'In the Library with the Lead Tentacle!' game:
Nearby was a large and impressive Aeronef table with some lovely islands, I'll be using some of these photos as reference material if Dystopian Wars takes off locally:
Plus a rather nice little chariot race and Hulk-style game:
A winter WWII table:
Another WWI dogfight:
The World of Twilight table using laser-cut styrene buildings. Very Froudian and a system/models that I'm tempted to take a closer look at:
A Three Musketeers-style swashbuckler, as I walked past i'm pretty sure someone was describing how their character was swinging from the chandelier...
Daleks & Cybermen!
Some 15mm SF from Dark Realms EDIT - Critical Mass Games, many apologies!
'No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!'
Medieval Japanese siege:
A Mercs game with some Alternate WWII weirdness in the background:
'Not Stargate honest guv!'
Some effective cork-bark cliffs. With vultures!
Finally, for now, Jed of Antenociti's Workshop offers up a park for inspection:
I took enough photos of Jed's table to do a whole extra blog post...
So that was Salute 2011 and a great event it was, hopefully I'll see you all there next year!
