    At the weekend I went to ChillCon Derby for the second year.  For those who do not know, it is a small (but growing) con that takes place in a school.  They took up 3 decent sized halls, some corridors and foyers this year, and didn’t quite have enough space.  I think they had more booked but the venue made changes last minute.  They also do an event in Sheffield every year too, but I’ve never made it there.  Last year we attended, did a little shopping and spent the day in the board games library occasionally revisiting the Bring and Buy to see what has been added and what prices had dropped.  We had a good day out, even with a toddler in tow.  We planned on doing the same again this year, but sadly they did not have a board game library, hopefully just due to space limitations.  If you want to do some shopping from the less mainstream companies, or try some participation or demo games its a good day out.  With a toddler “helping” out, its not really for us, although because of him we did get to meet James M Hewitt this year.

    If you’re nearby and curious I’d definitely say you should stop by one of their events, although they might not be worth travelling for.  I hope they grow and become more.

    Anyway, on to the reason I’m posting this.  If you buy tickets in advance they cost £4 and come with a free show exclusive mini.  You can however upgraded to a £30 ticket that gets you a goody bag, entry, and the show mini.  I got it last year and it was value for money.  This year it got a little silly so I wanted to show it off to give them credit, to give Mantic credit, and to get help identifying everything.

     

    First up, Here is this years goody bag, stuffed full of toys, with 30mm Bradigus Thule, Blackclad Wayfarer for scale.

    And here is everything from in the bag, all laid out:

    bag

    So what is all of that?

    1. Mars Attacks World War Book
    2. Dreadball Xtreme Player Manual
    3. Dungeon Saga The Adventurers Companion hardback book
    4. Fox Box Comss Gobbo mini
    5. Belt Fed Gamings Cleopatra, Egyptian Queen mini
    6. Show Exclusive 4-Dial Battletracker widget by Lasercut Architect
    7. Mantic branded tape measure
    8. Ainstey Castings Ape Mounted Command mini (Planet of the Apes solo horse rider)
    9. Bad Squiddo Games Thorrun, Shieldmaiden Champion mini
    10. Dreadball Ultimate plastic token set
    11. Chillcon Coaster and leaflets
    12. Chillcon show mini: Hecate, the Goddess of Magic & Witchcraft
    13.  A plane.  All packaging is in Russian.  I’ll need help working out what the plane is and what its from.  EDIT: Confirmed 1:100 Di Agostini Yak 3.  Is that around 15mm, so suitable for Flames of War etc?
    14. Arcworlde Halfling Sheriff metal mini
    15. Some actual red bubble wrap.  I assume this was around something, but I prefer to believe it is off-brand Tension Sheet
    16. A ProArte Scholar size 0 Paint Brush
    17. A keyring made from a purple D20
    18. Studio Miniatures Donald mini (Totally not Donald Sutherland from Kelly’s Heroes)
    19. Colour Party paints put of unlabelled Brown paint.  Not sure if this is a wash, a paint, a weathering thing.  Update.  Found their website, and this is Acrylic paint  MA41 Staffwood, 30ml
    20. Warlords of Erehwon mini: Arise, Oh Restless Dead
    21. 1x Booster Cards for Lightseekers and for AoS Champions
    22.  Lovely blue drawstring bag

    Here are some pics of the plane and of its packaging.  perhaps someone can translate it or recognise the plane or the product line and give me more information.  Currently thought to be a Yak 3, but is it from a specific game or range?

    For £26 all of that seems like great value for money, right?  That bag is stuffed.  Adding anything else would be silly, right?

    Enter Mantic who asked ChillCon to hold its beer.

    They threw in an entire copy of Dreadball Xtreme and what I assume is one of the Mystery Boxes.

    20190922_17243820190922_17235420190922_172535

    Apparently, by the time I arrived the check-in staff were already sick of hearing the phrase, “Oh.  I need to go back to my car already”.  Seems Mantic took ChillCon by surprise as they really expected everything to fit in the blue bags.  I wonder if Mantic needed to free up space in a warehouse?  Anyway, here is the box all laid out on my table.  I’ll do a full inventory soon, and I really need help working out what this stuff is, and how to eBay the bits for games I don’t play (ie does anyone need 5 extra herds of flaming cows, or should I sell them individually?

    20190922_173440

     

    I think there was also a VIP Swag Bag for £100.  Can you imagine what was in that?  You’d have to hire a van to drive it home.

    @sundancer, they did serve hot food, but it was a burger van.  I don’t think they sold Chilly but I could be wrong.  I think they are looking for a new venue for next year so they might get new food options there that perhaps include Chilly.  I cannot speak for ChillCon Sheffield.  They hay be hogging all the chilly.

    Last one, I promise!

    20190922_185347

    M21: 5x Flaming Cow Herds from Mars Attacks

    20190922_185327

    M22: Assorted Asterians from Deadzone

    20190922_185420

    M23: Mars Attacks Civillians pack

    20190922_185440

    M24: 2x Red Planet Martians /Mars Attacks Dreadball Teams.  I think.  They have no weapons that I can see.

    20190922_185535

    M25: More Mars Attacks characters, L to R, Unknown, KS Exclusive General Tor, KS Exclusive Esteban, KS Exclusive Don Manning

    20190922_185509

    M26: The same 3 red characters 6 times over.  The red plastic makes me think Mars Attacks, but I do not know.  Are they prone models for the martian Dreadball team? Possible Dead Martians also here?

    20190922_185604

    M27: Possible Undead Dog handler?, some kind of trident realms character(?), and Weiss for Dreadball

    20190922_185644

    M28: Walking Dead Prone Figure booster

     

    And that’s the last.  Please help me identify this lot.  As information comes in I’ll try going back and updating the labels on the pics.  If I don’t know what it is then I probably don’t play the game its for so if you see something you want feel free to make me an offer.  I’ll likely keep some of the cooler stuff to paint though.

     

    EDIT: At a quick count, estimating low for bags containing unknown numbers of models, that’s over 200 minis, before counting terrain and other stuff.  For £26 that’s damn good value, even if I don’t have a use for most of it.  There’s definitley some fun painting projects in there.

    Had a good day there as well. Our club ran a North Africa 1942 Bolt Action demo game, had fun chatting to a few folks. Spent a load of cash on vehicles for my Arab 1973 army thanks to Clive’s Diecasts.

    @lawnor – Mantic released their fantasy orcs as sci-fi orcs with a few changed weapons – they would be for Deadzone and Warpath.  The DIY art thing, going by my terrible memory are wound counters for KoW.

    @damon big desert table near the Mantic and River Horse stands?  Lovely big cotton wool smoke plumes? Were you dressed in dress uniform? Did you see a toddler around 1-2pm lying on the floor with his head between your table legs pretending to be asleep and refusing to move?  Sorry.  That was us.

    @lawnor, no mate, I think that was the Assaye 1803 game by The Boondock Sayntes club (great looking game), we were in front of the Warlord stand in the other hall. We didn’t have any toddler trouble…

    My only dressing up at shows is a t-shirt with some sort of smart-arse joke or a Monty Python quote on it.

    Letters on the packing of the airplane most certainly read Yak 3.

    Google translate agrees that the red font reads Yak 3.  If I knew how to type with that alphabet I could have translated it all.  Thank you both.  I’m assuming this is a toy/display model and not intended as a game piece, but no reason it couldn’t be used as one if I match its scale to a suitable game.

    Now I know what I’m looking for, I’ve found the product: https://www.flyingmule.com/products/DA-DARA20
