What's On?

Here is a quick rundown of what is happening during the day...

  • SEMINARSJoin the Battlefront bosses (Peter, John-Paul, John Matthews and Gordon) for several in-depth seminars throughout the day and links with New Zealand, which will be streamed on our website. So, if you’ve ever wondered how we decide on what miniature or boardgame we’re going to make or have some questions about what the future holds for Flames Of War, Team Yankee or TANKS, post your questions below
  • PARTICIPATION GAMES - We will have participation campaign games running throughout the day, building up to a large multiplayer battle before the days end for both Flames Of War and Team Yankee.
  • OTHER EVENTS - Alongside the participation games will be demo games of some of our upcoming new boardgames including Aliens, a speed painting competition plus of course our retail stand which will have some special deals on the day.

So, make sure to join us as we take a peek at all of the goodies and maybe we'll get in a few games too!

Battlefront UK Games Centre

I would definitely have attended this with some of the lads from my gaming club if we had heard about it. This for me ties back in to having something, maybe just a calendar, on the OTT/BoW site that can be used by companies or event organisers to populate a calendar with a title and a link.

I really enjoy these live blogs, all the fun of the gathering, without that underlying aroma of sweat, and no chance of catching con lurgy.

Thanks for taking the risk so i don’t have to.

Told my wife that I was missing out on a ‘Tank-fest’ of goodness today. Plus there was a limited edition Doctor Who miniature there today only. She said, “What’s stopping you?” I replied, “Oh, just the Atlantic Ocean.” 🙂

Looks like it was a blast to be there.

Tanks for covering the event for us guys!

Nice, I am getting slowly stuck in the Team Yankee game. What is more, my gf wants to try it out too, so I am getting the Starter soon.

As much as I am trying to be a objective person, Battlefront always manages to bring out the fanboy in me. I just love nearly everything they are doing and how they are doing that.

Really enjoyed this blog!

good to see coverage from “smaller” events, getting exposed to more games and events that i wouldn’t normally take an interest in is a large part of why i’m a backstager to support you guys.
