WMMS 2012 Show Report
This years Show was held on Sunday 11th March. Again we were treated to a fine spring day; however some of our Welsh participants were delayed by early fog.
Despite the current economic crisis and the scandalous price of fuel we still managed to attract 50 traders. Numbers through the door were almost exactly the same as last year. Total attendance is now over the 1000 mark.
As usual there were a large number of excellent display and participation games.
Winner of Best Display Game went to Shrewsbury for their Pirates game
Second place went to Leamington.
Third were Wyrley Retinue for their Thirty Years War game.
Best Modelling Display went to Wombourne IPMS.
Best Painted Figures went to Leamington.
Best Terrain went to Shrewsbury.
Best Participation Game went to Huntingdon & District for their Blackadder Goes Forth Airborne game.
Best Historical Display went to The Lace Wars. A thoroughly professional looking, and knowledgeable Seven Years War British infantry unit.
The dry weather meant that moving everybody in and out went very smoothly. The only logistical problem was the very large number of visitors who began arriving by 9:00am. All our advertising clearly states doors open at 10:00am. 9:00am is probably our peak time for demo games arriving.
Overall the day went well, nice to meet up with old friends, and spend a few pounds on impulse buys. Thatís what itís all about really. A big thank you to everyone who participated, those who set up, and dismantled the Show.
So hopefully, with your support the 37th WMMS on Sunday 10th March 2013 will be as successful.
Finally thank you to everyone who supported the Rally For Heroes in the main foyer. We also raised £300 for the Blind Veterans UK charity.
