Ad Arma Con 2019 Part II

And as mentioned, a lot of the German tabletop community joined in this event, so you've seen some that you've met at other shows earlier this year.

Rhein Main Tabletop brought their Battlefleet Gothic table with them.

Ad Arma Con 2019 Part I

As promised, I headed down into the "Palz" to Meckenheim, to visit the Ad Arma Convention 2019. New location, moved from the Sportshall in Speyer to the Gymnasium in Meckenheim.

Parking was a bit of an issue, if you came a bit late, you had to park along side the road or on the otherside on the parking lot of a Greek restaurant. After you've paid the 6 EUR entry fee, added one of the show miniatures to it, received your wrist band and were handed the ballot for "best table of the show", you could enter the hall itself through those roll ups.

7th Rhein Main Multiversum 2019

Due to the so-so weather, I didn't take the scenic route through the Taunus towards Nidderau, just north-east of Frankfurt, but the Autobahn. Because once again and for the 7th time, the Tabletop Club Rhein-Main hosted their Rhein-Main Multiversum at the Willi-Salzmann hall during the whole weekend.

Tactica 2019 – Part 2

The coverage of Part 1 continues with the prominent guests of Tactica.

The twin brothers Michael and Alan Perry were at the show, sculpting, having a chat with the guests and even added one of the show miniatures. But they weren't alone, they had Aly Morrison (who sculpted the Great War Miniatures range) and Peter Dennis (artists of multiple box artworks, Osprey and Warlord Games published works, and of Peters Paperboys).

Warhammer Fest Europe 2018 – Part 2

Continuing with the coverage of Part 1 on Warhammer Fest Europe 2018, the main venue was a two story hall with a large store, covering products of the main range along with Black Library, Forge World and Warhammer World exclusives. The glass cabinets of the Golden Demon painting competition started to fill up slowly.

Warhammer Fest Europe 2018 – Part 1

This weekend, on Saturday and Sunday, was the first time for Warhammer Fest Europe to open. It is a new event following in the steps of the former Games Days. Games Days in Germany were held in Cologne at the Gürzenich and the new event uses the convention area of the Maritim Hotel Düsseldorf, right next to the Düsseldorf Airport (DUS).

Parking was not a logistical problem, as there were plenty parking lots around the Hotel and the airport area. At rates of 3,50 EUR per hour they weren't exactly cheap. But the airport brought for those who didn't travel by car a couple of benefits. The visitors were quite international, so they had an easy way to get there by plane from the UK, France, Italy or Spain (and from what our readers told me, even Australia!), and for the "locals" of North Rhine Westphalia, the state has superb local service by train and bus.
