This weekend saw a trip down to Newark for the rescheduled Hammerhead show. I had roped in MartinC, JamesM and old mate Scotty for a evening away talking Wargames and drinking beer followed by gaming and/or topping up the lead mountain. Its was a great time - thanks guys.
All the games at Hammerhead are participation which is unusual for shows , but I think really helps to keep the full day alive , and you get people dipping in and out of games. We ran 4 games over the day - all of which were good fun. a number of comments said it played very cinematic , which it generally does is, so that was great. There were various visitors taking photographs and videos and I hope to see these as I look around blogs and you tube in due course. So here are some of the shots from the day
|Just another busy day in town|
|The stockyard was full |
|The Bounty Hunter turns up|
|He has soon found a "prisoner" worth more alive than dead..|
|Get 3 coffins ready Mr Undertaker|
|more beans Mr Taggert?|
|The Pinkertons are in town asking questions , looking for the same guy the Bounty Hunter has - what could possibly go wrong?|
|the prisoners 3 brothers dismount outside the bank |
|The sheriff sensing trouble, draws his weapons! |
I had stacked the hit deck with double the usual amount of fatal hit cards , to make things move at pace , and it really worked , with mayhem all round. Great games all , the Bounty Hunter won all 4 , but only just!
The icing on the cake at the end of the day was a £25.00 voucher from the organisers from a prize draw too.
I had good chats over the day, and caught up with a few of the big guys as well . There were lots of other really good games around , but I only managed a few very brief whizzes around the main hall and its traders . The stash haul was good..

Overall a really great weekend . I am hoping to herd the cats again for us to run something at the Other Partizan show in August. Painting time has pretty limited of late , but I hope to get my desk cleared over the next few weeks with a bit of luck .
