Crisis 2017 – Part I

Saturday morning, short of 10 a.m., once again we are in front of the halls of the Waagnatie Expo. Decorated with the eight large banners, that can be seen from afar. It is time for Crisis 2017.

Intro to Crisis 2017 Antwerp

It is this time of the year, early November and the TinSoldiers of Antwerp host their annual show, the Crisis. For me, preparation started in summer just when I got back from New Zealand, getting the team ready and booking hotel rooms.

Winter is coming

With the last two month of this year right around the corner, the planning for Winter is necessary. One of the next events on my schedule is the Crisis, as I already shared with you here - Crisis 2017 prelude.

Usually I prepare an advent calendar for December, but this year I'll schedule something different. I'd like to switch to some themed weeks, but still delivery some special topics on the advent sundays. So what do I have on my mind? Well, the review schedule has still a few things to cover. You are most likely well aware of the world war 2 heavy content, so expect a some vehicle kits in resin and plastic, and a few infantry sets among them as well.

Crisis 2015 Teaser

This weekend it is time for Crisis in Antwerp, and as it is the biggest wargaming event in continental europe i am really excited and looking forward for this long weekend in Belgium.

So what am i excited about? First of all, the novelties on this show are broad and diverse, so from tiny 6mm up to 40mm, from fictional to historical there are so many things to see. What did catch my eye before the show?
