Little Wars Canberra

A few of the club lads climbed into the car today for a road trip to Little Wars Canberra (about 3 hrs each way).  A small show in only its third year, it was nonetheless very welcoming and most enjoyable. Unlike most Australian Cons, this one deliberately has no tournaments or competitive gaming and only participation games (more akin to my experience at Fall In actually).  A great setup that I hope continues to grow in the future.

Great to catch up with Bish of Tiny Tanks (http://tinytanks3mm.blogspot.com.au) who was putting on a game with...well, tiny tanks!, Chris of the Moruya Marauders (http://moruya-marauders.blogspot.com.au) who I havent seen for ages, and talented sculptor Mike Broadbent

Also fantastic to see the ever smiling Nic from Eureka Miniatires (https://eurekamin.com.au) and Drew from Slave2Gaming (http://www.slave2gaming.com).  Bought lots of goodies from each.  Loot confession later (maybe) - here is the eye candy

Some of the games:
Command & Colours Ancients with models - great stuff!

Trail Ape's most impressive Hougamont Game using Sharpe Practice 2

An awesome table setup indeed!
Large scale ACW game 

We even got to roll some dice - the four us us participated in a fun and quickly tourney with some homegrown rules.  Great setup with fast furious action!
