Salute 2016 has been and gone for another year.
I spent most of the show rushing around trying to grab interviews and take pictures, and still managed to miss some games and traders completely – even though they were on my list of people to talk to! The bottom line, Salute is a big show, and it is unlikely that you will get to see everything.
We’ve got a couple of podcasts coming up in the near future, in which we will share more of our views on the show. However, I wanted to post some photos of my favourite games (the caveat is that these are from those that I saw – it turns out that I missed a few completely!)
Ian Smith & Friends – The Battle of Adrados (Based on the novel Sharpe’s Enemy)
ArcWorlde – Small, but perfectly formed
Bill Gaskin & Friends – Seven Years War
Crewe & Natwich Club – the Siege of Bristol (ECW)
Loughton Strike Force – Russo-Finnish War 1940 (WW2)
Great looking Frostgrave Table
The fantastic looking Renedra Castle
Josh came along for the day, and whilst his dad was working, he got to play a few games.
He reports the the upcoming Dark Souls game is pretty good, and he really enjoyed playing Guildball – so it looks like I’ve finally got someone I can play this with!
An interesting show, which left me with somewhat mixed feelings. Find out more when we publish our Salute Special Podcast – onward with the editing!
