Hereward Wargames Show 2016

Sunday September 4th 2016 saw the second Hereward Wargames Show, organised by the Peterborough Wargames Club (the current chairman happens to be Mike Whitaker, Podcast co-host!)

I spent a very pleasant day at the show, managing to chat to lots of people and even enjoy a game of Sharp Practice 2, run in his own unique style by Rich Clarke.

The first thing of note was that the show was much bigger than last year, with more traders (28) and more games (26) – the tournaments were even moved to a different room.

Despite the increased number of tables, the show still had enough room to move around comfortably. Coupled with the fact that the venue was very well lit, this meant that the overall feel of the show was busy, without feeling cramped.

Most (if not all) of the games were participation, and were generally of a very good standard. I managed to grab a few pictures during the day:

The Battle of Tribola – James Morris, Simon Miller and the Lenton Gamers



Canel Commandos – Very British Civil Forum


7TV – Crooked Dice


Battle of Culloden – Bedford Gladiators


The 30K Channel


Colonial Sudan – Peterborough Wargames Club

Another excellent show organised by the Peterborough guys – hopefully it will go from strength to strength in future years.

  1. From a trader’s point of view I would like to make special mention of how well organised things were. Clear directions and communications beforehand and lots of helpful folk around upon arrival and set down. (Plus lots of lovely customers!!)
