Another year has gone by and the Crisis Convention in Antwerp isn’t far off anymore . I am really looking forward to the convention, which is the best miniature and wargaming convention in Europe (that is on the continent) . There is only one bigger one in London called Salute.  The Tin Soldiers of Antwerp always do a grand job on the day and in the months before to be able to present such a marvelous show. Cudos to you Tin Soldiers!

This years free miniature is Till Eulenspiegel, sculpted by my good friend Paul Hicks.

FullSizeRender

The Intermodellbau is a very big modeling convention held annually in the Westfahlenhalle in Dortmund. Arguably it is the biggest convention of its kind in Europe. You can see Miniature figures, plastic models, radio controlled models, Dioramas, railroad models etc. The complete convention center is used , that is 8 very big halls each more or less as big as Salute! Below you see a paper model of the convention center in 1/250 scale:

Thats it for this year . It was a great convention were all sorts of modeling stuff could be seen . I think it is nice sometimes to see what other people are doing in their spare time. The paper models are absolutely stunning and labors of love as there are hundreds of hours spend to build them.

A Participation game of Saga , Vikings versus Normans:

 

And a Congo participation game were we took part. Objective of the game was to catch King Kong . This was to be prevented by the natives. It was great fun and the result was a draw.

King Kong a Schleich miniature!

All in all a very good little convention . We will be there again next year ! Maybe it would be nice to have some lokal traders at the con next year if possible. I know with such a little event it might not be worth for the traders to come but in a few years time if the convention grows ! Anyway very recommended if you want to try out an alternative rules system.
