There are a lot of collectors of miniatures and wargamers of many systems in the north of Germany, but no specialized events to promote our models, exchange experiences or bring up new ideas, except the Hamburg Tactica , which takes place on the weekend of the 24th and 25th of February 2018, again.
Hosted by the Wargaming Club Hamburg, the convention in the Bürgerhaus Wilhelmsburg is a gathering point for local, national and international collectors and wargamers.
It is the goal of the Wargaming Club Hamburg to support popular gaming systems by playing tournaments and demonstration games and promote new systems.
Fantasy and SciFi as well as historical gaming systems in all scales are welcome.
The concept of their demonstrations is „Come & Play“. Their exhibitors are happy to explain rules and tactics and visitors are welcome to join the gaming – they can even bring their own miniatures to take part in a game.Hamburg

Special miniature of the Hamburger Tactica 2018: Heinrich Barth
This year, the TACTICA figure follows the theme room into the desert. We present Heinrich Barth, the famous Hamburg Sahara explorer.
In 1849, Barth set out with a British expedition that would take him across the Sahara. The journey took him over Ghat, the foothills of the Tassili n’Ajjer and the Hoggar Mountains to Tintellust in the Aïr Mountains. From there we went to Agadez in Niger and finally to Timbuktu. After many adventures, including battles with predatory Tuareg, he returned home in 1855. Unfortunately, his travels are still shadowed unfairly by other big names, because Barth did not know how to market his discoveries. Nevertheless, Heinrich Barth is one of the great explorers of Africa in the 19th century.
As always, our 28mm figure was modeled by Frank Germershaus.
I will be at the Tactica on the 24th (Saturday) and I will take a lot of pictures so expect a photo report after the event.
Here are pictures of last years Tactica as a teaser!
