A little something from the weekend

I was fortunate enough to have an entire weekend of gaming from the 13th to the 15th at a little event called BLAM (British Lead Adventures Meeting). It's a small, invite only doo held in a pub in southwest London and has been going for ten years.

The basic idea is that around 20-30 people turn up and play games all weekend. The games are usually of a high standard and the members who participate spend a lot of time and effort in the figures, scenery and rules and a bloody good time is had all round.

I only hosted a Star Wars game this year as work got in the way for the weeks leading up to it and I didn't have time to finish anything off for it (this will be different next year).

Below are a selection of the games that were played. Not all of them, just the ones I remembered to take pictures of.

  4. Stunning work there. Always impressed with what shows up at BLAM.

    Have we seen the y-wing derived freighter from your Star wars board?
