So back from Antwerp. A really nice weekend, spend with dear friends, at a wonderful miniatures show!
This is the end of the pictures I took . Good buy Antwerp and thank you Tin Soldiers of Antwerp for a grand show!
So another Salute is gone by and I took a lot of photos like every year. The show was like the years before very well organized and despite the mass of people there wasn’t a very long delay to get in. The games were very well presented and the selection of traders was outstanding. But there is one point I have to criticize , the lighting . When you got into the Salute venue it was very dark. So dark that it was sometimes difficult to take decent pictures ( as you sadly will se below). There could be more light and in the venue next door ( a wedding convention ) it was very different , much more light !
But without further ado here are the pictures:
A blood and plunder game:
Here you can see how dark it was:

I have been to the Kiepen Con in Münster Germany yesterday. a new convention now in its second year. Very nice little con with beautiful games and an x wing tournament. This year there were so many games that there was literally no space left for a bring and buy which they had last year. Here are pictures of the venue:
