The category of Modern Warfare at Salute 2018 featured rather fewer conventional theatres, and an unexpected surge of gangland conflicts. Also, zombies taking over the Salute exhibition hall and not-Lego tanks duking it out on a bedroom floor – can’t get more modern than those in my view.
Street fighting in contemporary urban environments ranged from youth gang bust ups to gangland shoot outs and zombie/monster invasions.
The most original and also perfectly executed participation game was ‘Dead Show’ by Bexley Reapers Wargaming Club. The Salute hall had been painstakingly recreated in 28mm scale, including trade stands and gaming tables.
The Royal Air Force Wargaming Association brought a new family friendly and original game to the show with ‘A Brick Too Far’.
