Partizan 2016

This Sunday I went to Partizan at Newark.

Colin Jack presented a 28mm Bolt Action WWII display of the Brazilian Expeditionary Force engaging Italian RSI fascist units as the SESWC contribution.  Dave O’Brien, Ray Neal, Tim Watson and I supported Colin at the display.  We played the game for real and got to a draw mainly due to the Brazilians calling in American support.
Lots of great games at the show at its new venue in the Newark Showground.  The exhibition hall allowed more displays and traders to be present than the old venue at Kelham Hall.  It was big bright and airy with lots of space, better catering and more parking.
It was a good weekend.  We will be back.  Here are some of my photos.
