Leicester Phat Cats Derby Wargames Show - 2015

I was planning on going to Derby as a punter with Isla, however when I decided to check out the traders and games on the website I spotted that the Leicester Phat Cats had a table booked in!

that was 16 days before the actual weekend!

so after a couple of hours of facebook messaging and the plan of attack was sorted!

So the first club night we sorted out a hardcore session with loads of guys helping out and getting stuck in! 


hot glue gun and cork bits galore!


The airbrush team, 


Kat going for the sponging technique after a 10 min masterclass from yours truly! 


the table after the first night, 




after some digging about I found some cool bits for internal odds and sods, splash of paint and these were sorted!



So we hit the table hard for the second week and smashed it out of the part, Dan knocked a few scenarios together and it was good to go!

So pics from the actual show, the lighting in the venue was good for the human eye but bad for picture taking giving it a yellow appearance,

loads of good tables for this year and loads of variety, so onto the pics, I'll apologise in advance with regards to the pictures as some are on the side and I carn't suss out how to turn them around as the edit pic function isn;t working!





Nick setting up the table,


And all ready to go!


The marines ready to secure the objective...



Lee getting very excited!






The warzone demo board,



Another shot because I can!























James getting 6mm painting lessons.... 6mm! screw that!













Brilliant Mexican board blasting out music all weekend, loved it!













Dungeon saga being demoed,





































Dust warfare... with the previous stuff that happened with this system why would you bother....

































Some really cool terminator stuff!

















Carl doing his thing with open combat





























GoA, being demo'd by the world famous Nick!













Bloody nice dropzone board as always!









































































So I was having a long chat with Nick and the designer? of some of the GoA models and spotted these, Nick did tell me what they were but I carn't remember! however these are the guys that I'll be collecting when they get released!


And the usual "haul" Picked up a crazy amount of stuff this time round!




I also managed to get one of the only 5 spider tanks in the world!! really chuffed with this model, very nicely done!




and its been a while since I've picked up a new non-kickstarter system, So this is the Halflings for Arcworlde, great models and had a really good deal on at the show, more on these guys and the system in the future!
