Salute 2018 – Part 2

Let us focus on the gaming tables and participation rounds at Salute in this part of the coverage.

A table, that I was really looking forward to see, was the one by Andy Singleton and Kildaire Paintworks, it is a 20mm / 1:72 World War two Setting in the mediterranean. He documented the different kits shown in the scenario on facebook, showed work in progress on models and terrain. And it was amazing to see, how it all came together at the show. Had a great talk with Andy at the show. Always fun to exchange ideas and have a chat with fellow wargamers.

Next table shown is by Ian Smith & Friends, and won the game award on this years Salute. It is "Glory! From the Halls of Montezuma" and covers the attempt of Union forces to take Charleston by land and sea during the ACW with 40mm miniatures. Most of the terrain shown on this table, especially the fort, was done by David of TMTerrain. He worked on the post apocalypse table for Crooked Dice as well.

Warlord Games brought a World War 2 What-if Scenario on the Battle of the Philippine Sea for Blood Red Skies to the show. The huge aircraft carrier was prepared by Darek Wyrozębski of the Warlord Games painters. Amazing use of the center piece and something you could truely only do on a wargaming event, as this would simple be to large for home gaming.

Of course, that we're not all of the participation rounds, just the ones that caught my eye. It was a very broad and colourful selection of tables, and the show and the participating clubs offer a high quality of tables not only this year, but the years before. So even if you're not into shopping miniatures, Salute is worth a visit!
