Games and Models

Legionary 2014

An annual treat in Exeter

This year’s show had a good cross section of gaming activities. Show games, competitions and trade stands all had a good presence.

Not to mention the old favourites of a bring and buy stand and a raffle! I sold a few bits but didn’t win any prizes.


None of the games on show really grabbed my imagination this year. Not because of a lack of quality as there were plenty of excellent models on fine terrain. Just nothing had that extra zing that stood out for me.

The competition games were well supported with ancients and medieval in evidence along with Warhammer.


With Magister Militum attending I seized the opportunity to stock up on fortifications, tents and baggage for my Roman armies. I’m looking forward to trying out some Early Germans I got from them too.

Alas, Warlord couldn’t keep up with demand so I didn’t get the Civil War engineers set I was after. Some book bargains made up for this along with a fine haul of second hand Slingshots from the bring and buy.

Keep eye on the club website for news of next year’s show. It’s a good show, in a good venue and good transport links.
