Warfare 2018

I spent today at Warfare at the Rivermead Centre in Reading, helping out on the Sails of Glory game. As usual a good time was spent chatting with friends, many of whom I hadn't seen for a long time. I also got to take a look at the forthcoming "Cruel Seas" 1/300 coastal forces game from Warlord - an interesting game on which I will share my thoughts in due course.

I also took along the new BSG game to show to my Wings of Glory chums. VERY impressed they were.

Forget "Galactica 1980", we had "Galactica 1918" :)

A goodly selection of games on offer, I snapped a few (the playmobile Vikings game was clearly my favourite!)

Game of the day :)

An excellent participation game of the siege of Bristol

Our own "Sails of Glory" game, wherein we introduced a number of new players to the game

Shopping was a bit of a bust - there were a few specific things I was after but none of the traders that covered them were there. I did get a new blue hex mat from Magister Militum double sided with two hex sizes, and smaller hexes than my current mat), a dice bag from young Katie who always has her craft stall at the show - and that was about it.


  1. It looks like it was a fun day. I like the photos of the Cruel Seas ships and look forward to hearing what you think about the rules.

  2. I missed Warfare this year, always a good show. Interesting look at Cruel many counters do you need for a simple naval game!!?

  3. Yes, your comments re: Cruel Seas please! (Maybe you'll be releasing your new rules sooner?)

  4. My rules have been delayed. No sense in hitting the market with two coastal forces games at the same time (even if they are aimed at different customers)

  5. Great looking games. Those Playmobil Viking Ships are very cool.
