Hammerhead Wargames Show 2014

Hammerhead Wargames Show is just a couple weeks away. Will you be there to check out all the games being played?


From the announcement:

Hammerhead 2014 will be taking place on Saturday March 1st at the New Venue: Cedric Ford Pavilion, Newark Showground, Newark, from 10am until 4.30pm.

Entry is £4.00 GBP per adult, £3.00 GBP for minors (16 and under), Children under 9 free.

Every game at Hammerhead is visitor participation, which means that you are very welcome 'to have a go' at a wide variety of different historical and fantasy based games run by intrepid gaming clubs, historical societies, wargame companies and enthusiastic groups of gamers. You will be able to play a full game or simply move a few miniatures, roll some dice, have a chat with the people running the game and then move onto the next. The show provides a great opportunity to try out new or familiar game systems and spend a day indulging yourself and friends in this absorbing and fascinating hobby. Whether you're interested in The Great War, WWII, Medieval, AWI, Fantasy or Science Fiction, we are sure that you will find a selection of games you would like to play.

There is a good selection of top traders selling a wide variety of wargaming wares, miniatures, terrain and scenery, books and gaming accessories.

This year Hammerhead show will be hosting a Tabletop Sale in place of the usual bring and buy stand. If you are new to this, you basically hire a table for one hour to sell your unwanted wargames items. You can deal directly with the buyers and answer any questions they may have. With no commission, you keep all the profits.

The Hammerhead 2014 miniature, ‘Leader of Stallions', will be available for the first time on the day of the show for the token price of £1.00 GBP, or FREE if you purchase your Hammerhead Entry ticket online prior to the show.
The car parking is plentiful, free and Newark Showground is only a few minutes from the A1 at Newark Junction.
