South Cheshire Militaire

Rather than the usual biweekly boardgaming I popped down to Crewe to the military modelling show there called South Cheshire Militaire.  I hadn't been for quite a number of years ten perhaps and the show is now certainly a lot bigger than it was with every scrap of space being used so it was probably as large a show as Phalanx, but no wargames.  Of course being military modelling it is dominated by 1/35 scale , but there was a number of interesting small scale items on display.  I picked a few bits a couple of 37mm armed Panzer IIIs, a Revell CR42 Falco (East Africa WW2 again!) and a Lindberg Landing Ship Infantry, which turns out to be 1/160 scale so I think it will be back on sale soon (Although that is around 10mm I expect it could be used for 15mm games).

One thing that really amazed me was the quantities of old aircraft kits on sale and I almost got tempted by an old Airfix Ju88 for the SOTCW game at Gauntlet this year.  The other was the low prices for quite reasonable 20mm tanks on the B&B.

I really Enjoyed this game.War Games are designed to test the player’s strategic thinking and tactical skills. Your kid would enjoy fighting a battle using arms and armies in strategic ways
