SELWG 9th October

Postby Levied Troop » Tue Oct 04, 2016 12:20 pm

This Sunday, a chance to top up the chlorine levels at Crystal Palace.

I'll be there with Calvados & Chips, a little CoC action in 1944. But don't let that put you off, there are plenty of other games and the odd trader.

We gave it a miss for a couple of years... it's a pita to get to, unloading/loading is a nightmare and last time we did it we got £130 fine for driving 10 yards in a bus lane :evil:

We're carrying a lot more lines and stock now so figured it was worth giving it one more chance.

I've even had my vaccinations done for going sarf of the river

I ran into you SELWG, I was really impressed with the scene and level of detail on your “Calvados and Chips” game.
So I thought I’d join the forum and drop you a line to say thanks for putting on a great display.
As I may of mentioned at the moment I am building some WWI(I) scenery in 28mm. So it was a real help to speak to John about the some of the tips and trick you’ve used in creating such a great Battlefield. I particularly liked the idea of using aluminium as a basing material. In your view would .9mm thickness be sufficient to use for this purpose?
As I mentioned on Sunday when we were talking, a number of years ago you put on an early WWI game at Salute with Belgium’s and Germans which I was really taken with, in fact it sparked the interest that resulted in into that period.

I do hope I run into you guys at other shows to appreciate your work and see your games they’re right up my street in. It seems where you go I follow since I am also arranging a game of Chain of Command in the near future. Thanks again guys,

Cheers,

Jerry

Jerry,
A pleasure to chat with you at Crystal Palace, thanks for your kind comments and always nice to know we've inspired people to spend money on new periods :D

I mentioned a thread covering the building of Calvados, its here:
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=51823&hilit=Calvados+and+chips

There's also one on the Belgium game:
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=46015&hilit=Dampf


Hope you enjoy Chain of Command, the Lardies run an excellent forum on the web that can answer all questions and provide many useful resources, but if I can help with anything, just pm me.

And welcome to Frothers. It's going through a quiet patch at present but it has some extremely helpful and knowledgeable people - although great care should be taken around the fringes of the Frothpot!

Edited: re aluminium, I go for 0.5mm as it's easier to cut (via the score and bend method). I've use 1mm but it takes ages to score properly - but useful for really large bases.

Good show (but could/should be so much better given the date and location).

Getting out was a fucking nightmare - 2 hours after the show closed before we were on the road and the traffic, the last mile before the Blackwall tunnel, was simply ridiculous.

Got home at 11.30 :loopy:
