Salute 2016 – Fantasy

In the world of Fantasy most tables at Salute 2016 were run by manufacturers demoing their products and games.

An exception was this massive table heaving with miniatures brought together by the Ilford Wargames Group. The Fall of the Life Goddess witnessed a titanic clash between the forces of Good and Evil, using a wide variety of fantasy races and sculpts from Citadel Tomb Kings to Grenadier Barbarians.

On the other end of the spectrum, Otherworld Miniatures ran skirmish level encounters with their range of classic D&D inspired figures.

For Freebooter’s Fate this demo table in a sunny lagoon made great use of aquarium plants.

    • It had nice depth to it with a thick layer of clear resin which doesn’t show well in the photo. I felt like jumping right in.

  1. Really love the lagoon! It looks just like a place I would have a vacation at (minus the Goblins etc. obviously). The amount of 28mm miniatures on the massive battle table is impressive. Thank you for your efforts and for sharing these pictures!

    • I’m usually surprised that the companies and clubs displaying those tables don’t post more of their own pictures – was looking for additional shots from Freebooter’s Fate to link here but no sight of the table on their website so far.
