Hereward Wargames Show – Games in pictures

Sunday 3rd September 2017 saw the third Hereward Wargames Show, organised by the Peterborough Wargames Club.

The show is held at the Cressett centre in Peterborough, which provides a nice light and airy venue. This year did seem a little less crowded than previously – there was a conscious decision by the organisers not to squeeze quite as many games and traders into the premises as they had previously.

All-in-all a nice local show – several traders that you don’t necessarily see at every venue, and some bargains to be had at the sales tables. It’s well worth a visit (even if it is at the other end of the truly horrible A47 from Leicester!)

Several games were on display, with many allowing participation by attendees – here are the ones that caught my eye:

The Battle of Holme – WAB 1.5 Gamers
