Broadside 2012!

I recently found out that due to circumstances beyond my control, I will not be able to attend BROADSIDE 2012 this year.


BROADSIDE is a very new wargames show, run by the Milton Hundred Wargames Club.

I went last year ... and was very impressed by what I saw ... which is why I am so disappointed that I won't be able to go this year.

I understand that this year the show is being sponsored by Pen & Sword Books and that it will be taking place on Sunday 10th June 2012 at the Swallows Leisure Centre, Central Avenue, Sittingbourne, Kent, ME10 4NT, from 10am to 4pm.

The cost of entry is only £3.00 PLUS non-wargaming partners and children under 16 get in for free when accompanied by a paying adult ... which can't be bad can it?

The list of traders is quite impressive (37 to date), as is the number of clubs that have agreed to attend (14 clubs running 26 games).

One thing that I was particularly pleased to see was the involvement of people like Pen & Sword Books (the show's sponsors) ...

...and Armourfast.

The latter is running a 'Make and Take a Tank' table where children can build a model tank FOR FREE ... and then use their tank in a game!

I think that regular blog readers will have realised by now that this is one wargames show that I am very sorry to have to miss ... and I encourage any of you who can to pay it a visit.


  1. Sorry you can't make it. It is a good show and we (Posties Rejects) were so impressed last year that we will be running our first Demo game at this years event.

  2. Lee Hadley,

    I had hoped to run a demonstration/participation game at Broadside using my MEMOIR OF BATTLE rules ... but I will have to put it off until another time.

    I hope that you have a great time there, and that your game demonstration goes well.

    All the best,
