Scottish Battlefield Trust Wargames Show - Prestonpans

Saturday saw me attend this small event at the Gothenburg pub in Prestonpans as a trader.
First off the pub was wonderful, good food, good ale ( even if I couldn't drink any) a micro brewery etc. So even if the weather was a bit dour the pub was warm and friendly.

This event arranged by Warwick Louth in support with the Scottish Battlefield Trust was a first and in many ways took me back to the hobby in the early 70's, a friendly, intimate atmosphere where people came to game and enjoy themselves. Seven games (I think) all with a Scottish theme and around the same number of traders.
The games had the likes of Barry Hilton,David Imrie, Iain McDonald there and all were of a good quality.
I only took a few photos I'm afraid mainly of Barry's Killiekrankie  battle where he was trying out his soon to be released card driven rules for the period.
Lot's more photos on Iain's  The Camlachie Wolf blogspot

Also had the pleasure of chatting to M S Foy of Prometheus in Aspic - its always good to meet up with people previously only known through the internet and blog world!

The pictures of the room were taken before the public arrived, it ticked over nicely all day and I really look forward to going back next year sometimes small is good.

Photos of Barry's Killiekrankie game - very nice.
I also found a wonderful company Supreme Little Designs - yes another laser cut building company but Michael has made soem really nice pieces of all scales and is worth checking out.
One thing for certain I will be back next year.
