Some of you may have seen my article on Sunday outlining a couple of things I’m looking at getting my grubby mitts on whilst at Salute. Principally these involved even more Afterlife stuff and potentially getting into Infinity. Well there are so many stands and traders that I thought I’d put up a whistle-stop tour of contenders for my money on the day…
This afternoon I turn my attention to the world of River Horse. Creators of the Terminator:Genisys game as well as Waterloo – “Quelle Affaire!” and a series of other chess like games they have been integral in the process of bringing some other much loved titles to our tables, not least of which are Dreadball and Bolt Action. But what can we expect to see at their Salute stand this year?
One thing I like about Westwind is the driving force behind it, Wendy is an absolute star and a genuine nice person who loves games and gamers, and always has time for a quick chat.

In the run up to Salute me and Mark are trying to contact as many people as possible, one to secure toys for our grubby mits and two to see whats what and see if we can get any super secret information.
Great Escape Games is one of those companies and it looks like it will be a busy stand as they will have 8 product lines available as well as a demo game.
Science fiction is most certainly my bag (in case you hadn’t noticed) and the miniatures of Anvil Industry certainly tick that box. Not only do they make superb resin models and bases in the genre I enjoy most but they are behind their own near-future wargame Afterlife.
So far I have covered looked at painted procrastinated and generally chatted to more games designers, developers and publishers than I knew there were games that existed! Then I discovered Kickstarter and there are litterally almost another 100 every few weeks, figures are not official, and I wonder who has time to play all these games.

Morning guys and girls how is the hobby going today? Hopefully better than mine as there seems to be a slight technical glitch somewhere beyond our realms of control which has rendered the UK Events Calendar virtually empty.
