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.

Didn't think you were doing SELWG anymore?

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:
