Salute 2016 at the ExCeL organised by the South London Warlords brought its usual variety of wargaming across many eras and scales. Getting to see all the amazing tables in-between browsing and shopping is always a challenge. At the end of the day I managed to snap at least a selection to provide an overview of what was on display, starting off with the historical late modern era.
The Loughton Strike Force put on a battle during the Russo-Finnish War of 1940 over a frozen lake using the Chain of Command rules.
The Tet Offensive was the backdrop to the Essex Gamester’s Vietnam War mega game.
Cold War gone hot in 6mm scale was the topic for Heroic and Ros’ 1986 Gyros Teller Goes Small in a Large Way which saw Soviet forces assault across a river defended by NATO.
Leicester Phat Cats were gaming in the same era using Team Yankee rules and 15mm models. The setting saw a US Combat Team face off against a Russian Motor Rifle Regiment.
Jet Warfare of the 1980s was the theme for White Hart Wargamers’ Sidewinder game.
The Crawley Wargames Club hosted the D-Day: Operation Overlord participation game.
The Road to Homs was the title of an alternative scenario for the Invasion of Lebanon 1982. Maidstone Wargames Society created this epic conflict in 3mm scale.
