Salute 2017 - Excel London
I attended Salute this year for the first time since 2015 to assist the Naval Wargames Society with their 1919 Russian Civil War Interventionist participation game. Simon and the crew were there in attendance with me attempting to assist by answering questions, help run the games and pack up at the end of the day. It was quite a busy day and money was spent buying toys and paints by all!
Simon used the excellent PT Dockyard models from the USA for the game. There isnt a UK stockist but if riverine actions are your thing these vessels are a must buy.
I took the opportunity to walk round and take some pictures of any game that was connected to water based warfare and here are the pictures I took on the day.
Dalauppor put on a Swedish - Dutch North American Colonial game.
Hysterical Games put on a landing craft assault game
Oshiro Model Terrain put on a spectacular looking Shogunate waterborne siege game
