As well as the 6 competitions being staged, this year the BHGS tables were ideally positioned next to the cafe and bar in the main "free play" gaming area in Hall 2 meaning we saw a lot of interested UKGE punters wandering around our tables and asking players about historical wargaming - so we may well have drummed up a few new members from the wider gaming community as a result of this years event, which is great news all round.
Next up is Britcon in Manchester from 9-11 August. We've already got almost 130 players signed up to play in our 12 different events, so at the current rate we are set for the biggest and busiest Britcon in recent memory, so make sure to book your ticket now just in case we reach venue capacity this time around and have to set up a wait list.

We also heard a lot of positive buzz from players this weekend at The Challenge who are forming teams for the BHGS Historical Teams being held at the London GT this September 14/15 in London. Full details are again on our website, with FoG A/M (team), L'Art de La Guerre (team), Mortem et Gloriam (team), DBMM (team), Bolt Action (singles) and To The Strongest! (singles) all being played as well as the Inaugural Saga World Championships (for National Teams). It promises to be a great event so make sure you are a part of it and check out the entry criteria and tournament packs on our site.
