The Hammerhead Venue

All 50+ games at Hammerhead are visitor participation, which means that you are very welcome 'to have a go' at a wide variety of different historical and fantasy based games run by intrepid gaming clubs, historical societies, wargame companies and enthusiastic groups of gamers. You will be able to play a full game or simply move a few miniatures, roll some dice, have a chat with the people running the game and then move onto the next. The show provides a great opportunity to try out new or familiar game systems and spend a day indulging yourself and friends in this absorbing and fascinating hobby. Whether you're interested in Napoleonic, WW1, WW2, Medieval, Ancients, Fantasy or Science Fiction, we are sure that you will find a selection of games you would like to play.

There is a great selection of 45 top traders selling a wide variety of wargaming wares, miniatures, terrain and scenery, books and gaming accessories.

Hammerhead show will be hosting a Tabletop Sale, you basically hire a table for one hour to sell your unwanted wargames items. You can deal directly with the buyers and answer any questions they may have. With no commission, you keep all the profits.

The Hammerhead 2016 miniature, a French general, will be available for the first time on the day of the show for the token price of £1.00 GBP, or FREE if you purchase your Hammerhead 2016 Entry ticket online prior to the show. See website for details.

Back from my first Hammerhead, a really great show and I actually managed to play some games - although I missed out on Nevermore's brilliant looking Moggie-Dishu.

Agreed was a great show even if I was shot down in turn two of Wings of War :)

All games looked good from the smallest 2x2 up to the largest lizard man attack - no way could you do justice to all the games and a shame to have to select the ones to play.

Nice to see some new traders (or maybe I am out of date) and the range of figures was larger then I've seen for a long time - Kickstarter may have had a good impact here. I do wonder how long the current frozen skirmish trend will continue...

Food was ok - queue short when I went up but the table was sticky. Nice to have a jacket potato with salad as an option but I understand the burgers and chips were good as well :-). I did not see any snacks or cold food though - thought that was a bit odd.

Only real problem was the sound system - it was obviously ex British Rail and in most cases I could not make out the announcements at all.

All in all beats the old Kelham hall by miles and I understand it's lots easier for the traders (hi Andy from Anisty) to get in and out.
