IPMS Fenland & Spalding are hoping to run Wings & Things this year on 19th September and have asked us to put on a participation game again.

Wings & Things is a model show and ours was the only wargame there last time but we did get quite a lot of interest.

Last year I ran What a Tanker in 28mm using Gary's models (looked good and showed you can wargame with the stuff a lot of modelers would have already). Any thoughts for this year?

I was thinking the same thing, but it's a model show so possibly something more "modelly"?

I agree something historical that involves some nice models would fit well. Planes, ships, tanks...

The game is a 54mm Western Desert game using the Bolt Action rules.

Show details-

QuoteThe show is held at University Academy Holbeach, Park Road, Holbeach, Lincolnshire PE12 7PU and is open on Sunday 19th September 2021 from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Parking
Parking is available on site, traders and exhibitors will be directed to the load and unloading areas which are at the rear of the show area on the day. Parking is also available at the front of the building  for visitors


Traders & Exhibitors Set Up
The venue will be available for Traders and Exhibitors to start setting up at 0800. To ensure that the  show is ready to open to the public at 10.00, we ask that the set up is complete by 0945. We would ask  that once you have completed unloading, that you move your vehicles to the Trader/Exhibitor parking  area, which is immediately adjacent to the unloading area, this will help keep the flow into the halls  running smoothly. The stewards in this area are there to keep the flow into the halls and  trader/exhibitor areas runs as smoothly as possible.

Had a great day, got plenty of interest. Thanks to Grahame, Andy M and all the play testers.

All the forces and terrain was provided by Grahame, 1/32 scale looks great on the table. Pictures are in the site gallery and on Facebook.
