Some Amazing Tables Taking Shape

18 Comments

There are some fantastic tables taking shape here at Salute with some featuring over 1000 models! This is one of the massive Napoleonic clashes on the tabletop which uses hex-based movement to make it quicker and easier to play.

One of the key things is that the game focuses in on mechanics which deal with sections of the battlefield over single units making it a big, grand encounter.

One of the other amazing tabletops from the show is this fantastic table which shows off an amazing river made using fantastic water techniques AND brilliant bush work too. I love how the terrain flows from wonderful forest landscapes through to the massive fort at the back.

Burrows & Badgers!

I couldn’t go through an entire Salute without delving down into some Burrows & Badgers. @soldado from the website has made an amazing tabletop here packed with very characterful terrain which is perfect for some skirmishes on the tabletop with your warbands.

The team from Oathsworn have been having a wonderful time here too at the event, selling loads of miniatures and doing demo games which have been packed every time we’ve come to see them.

Another evnet full of content? I’ve been busy for a few weekends now and don’t have a full weekend free until the bank holiday. Normally I’d say you don’t make enough content but I’ve many hours of backlog and now this? I’m looking forward to it but I suspect I’m going to need the 4 day weekend to finally catch up on everything.

Just an idea not sure anyone will see this, but for events like this could all the video content be put into a playlist or something either here or youtube? often I play the videos whilst doing something else so it is nice to just have them all play one after the other rather than having to keep change blog post. Just an idea.
