Wargames Symposium














A bit of a catch up post this time for the Wargame's Hobby Craft Symposium, organised and hosted by David Imrie over in Leven a couple of weeks ago. Held over a weekend with different activities on the Saturday and Sunday.

Put together to be a different sort of wargame's event with demonstrations and talk, painting clinic, painting competition, video conferencing and other modelling teach-ins and of course some gaming activities too.

I managed to attend on the Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the mixed fayre on offer including chats with Thomas Foss who demonstrated his 'Broken Lances' jousting game, Matthew Bickley on sculpting tips and several bods on terrain making in general and MDF tarting up in particular.

Sea Cadets Hall which event proceeds went to help


Food for the event was provided by the Sea Cadets staff and was easily some of the best fayre I've had at a wargames event, probably ever. The bacon rolls were worth the trip alone.

Some of the Painting Competition entries.










Thoroughly enjoyed the event and hats off to David and his helpers for putting on a different and thought provoking event. I look forward to hopefully attending next years get together.

  1. Unfortunately, I missed this or would have come along as it sounds like a great event for the hobby as a whole.

    Looking foward to more like it.

    Cheers, Ross
