Wellington Great War Exhibition Part 1

One of the stops that I was most eager to visit, was the Great War Exhibition in Wellington. It marked more or less the last stop on our trip around the north island, before we went for further two and half weeks on the south island. But let me tell you why I was so excited to go there. The GWE is home to an large diorama that was created in cooperation with Perry Miniatures and the New Zealand wargaming scene. And were not talking about some 4 by 8 ft table, but something far bigger.

Wellington Great War Exhibition Part 2

The Great Hall of the GWE ends in a hallway, leading on one way towards the cafe and shop, and on the other end towards the ANZ room.

After the hard focus on the western front, the hallway moves over to the New Zealand part of the ANZAC. Explaining which parts of the country raised what regiments, numbers and where they were shipped to. Colourised images of the mustering troops, the gear and so on.

Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, is home to many cultural sites, among them Te Papa Tongarewa, the National Museum of New Zealand. The name means "the place of treasures of this land" and covers many different exhibitions, about the history, the animals and plants of this country, as well as a current exhibition about Gallipoli, that was done in cooperation with Weta Workshop. The exhibition is not the be confused with the Great War Exhibition in the anzac park, that will be covered soon here as well.

A Tour of Hobbiton – Movie Set Tour 2017

This article is for the terrain builders and Lord of the Ring enthusiasts. First proper one about the trip to New Zealand, so enjoy!

After we arrived in Auckland, our first stop along our route through the Northern Island of New Zealand was near Matamata, in Hobbiton. While driving through Waikato we already got the "shire vibe" and half an hour before arriving there, you already knew - this must be the place. It was cloudy at first, but it brightened up during the day.

Salute 2017 haul

On April 22nd, was the Salute 2017 held by the South London Warlords. Salute is the biggest independent one-day wargaming and gaming event in the UK and likely in Europe. I visited the show last year in 2016, had a great time, as you can see here in the Parts I - IV of my coverage (Part I, Part II, Part III and Part IV).

This year, due to time issues, I couldn't be there myself, but a good friend of mine, living in Cambridge, was kind enough to bring along a few items for myself and even kinder to drop by the next day (24h express wargaming goodies delivery... so great 😀 ).

Ad Arma Con 2017

Yesterday on May 6th was the 2017 Ad Arma Con in Speyer. This was the second time for the new event under the new name, and the fourth time in total. So after 400 km I'm back home and want to share my impression. Speyer is in the south of Rhineland Palatina, in the region of Palatina and well known for the Cathedral and the Technik museum.

Of course, no coverage without a proper parking lot picture. When the first year the lot direct to the sport centre was enough, nowadays they although cover the nearby parking lot of the soccer pitch.

Ad Arma Con costs 5 Euros entry and covered a long list of participation and demo games, along with a bring & buy and X-Wing tournament.

It is mid of March, so it is time for the spring Bitbox! A tabletop flea market in Mülheim an der Ruhr. The opening times were shortened from 11:00 to 14:00 and for the first time I had the sensation of queueing at this event.

5th Narrenball – Blood Bowl Tournament

On SuperBowl Sunday I got in my car and headed north towards the 5th Narrenball 2017 - a Blood Bowl Tournament and official NAF event.

During the ride I was greeted by a wall of fog in the Siegerland. A bit later I arrived in Remscheid, at the Rack-n-Roll Billard Cafe.
