Regarded as the foremost Wargames show in Europe (some would say the world!), Salute will take place at the Excel Centre in London’s docklands on Saturday 16th April.
The event has become an annual pilgrimage for the GCN and as ever, there will be both games and an information stand at which you can ask about membership, the website, upcoming events or chew the cud with the GCN council members on duty there.
As with every year, Salute has a theme running through the show. 2016 is no exception and Steampunk is the theme. In this light the GCN will be running a fast play version of ‘In Her Majesty’s Name’ over a number of boards, a game that has proved popular across the world. For those with a more fantastical leaning, COGs will be staging a massive (18’) mass battle using Kings of War fort the GCN. Both games are participation!
You will find a few of the GCN Committee in attendance as well Chris Peachey, Chris Brown, Jez Fairclough and Dave Wise will be along on the day so feel free to pop past and have a chat.
We know that there will be a number of GCN member clubs running games at Salute, so we would like to hear from you. Tell us about the game, or games, you are bringing. Photos are very welcome and we will publish a list on the GCN website. Wargames Illustrated are also asking for articles with respect to clubs staging ‘Steampunk’ themed games at Salute.
