Over the years the boys have produced many demo games at Conquest, as well as the National Wargames Convention (when held in Christchurch), and on one occasion at the Big Little Railway Convention. We always try to put together something original that is colourful and that will hopefully gain the interest of others. These games have varied from Seven Years War in 15mm, Napoleonics in 15mm and 25/28mm, American Civil War, American War of Independence, English Civil War and Zulu War in 25/28mm. We put a strong emphasis on the terrain matching the quality of the painted troops and we like to think that over the years we have improved the quality of both. One of the most pleasing aspects of demo games is interacting with the public and other members of the wargaming fraternity, explaining what the game represents and disgusing the various historical background, along with how we made the terrain. We also benefit from talking with others who are only too pleased to pass on to us numerous painting and model making tips. It's this interaction with like-minded people that make the hobby so enjoyable. From the photos we've attached you will be able to see that we also like to add a little spice to our presentations by dressing in period costume on the odd occasion to the amusement of those not so adventurous...it adds to the fun of it!
