    Battleground 2015 will be taking place on Saturday November 28th, at the Queen’s Campus Sports Hall in Stockton-on-Tees, TS17 6BH, running from 10am until 3pm.
    Hosted by Pendraken Miniatures along with Middlesbrough Gamers Club, this show was formerly known as Smoggycon, but from 2014 became Battleground!

    Entry to the show is only £3 per person, and we’ll be keeping our successful free entry policy for SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) and free entry for the kids as well (Under 14’s)!

    We’ve slightly increased the trader selection this year, with 37 companies currently pencilled in, covering a huge variety of genre’s and scales.  New traders for 2015 include:
    Grubby Tanks / BritanniaBringing a huge selection of 20mm goodies and filling a definite gap in our previous trader selection: http://www.grubbytanks.com/catalog/%5B/url%5D
    Studio Miniatures28mm Zombies, Sikh Wars and Northwest Frontier, plus more: http://www.studiominiatures.com/
    Cozzmic CakesAfter they were unable to attend last year, Cozzmic will be bringing their sugary fun to the day with some cool themed cakes: https://www.facebook.com/CozzmicCakes?fref=ts

    All of the traders can be found here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!traders/c24i2

    We’ll also have a fantastic selection of display and participation games lined up, encompassing wargaming, modelling and RPG’ing, which we’ll be announcing closer to the date.

    And as another addition to this year’s event, we’ve added the 68th Durham Light Infantry living history group to the show, bringing a selection of the 68th’s incarnations throughout their history.

    The Flea Market is always a great option for any unwanted goodies, where for only £1 per half hour slot, you can sell as much as you like, with no commission at all!  You can deal directly with the buyers, answer any questions they may have, and also keep an eye on your goods. Once your time is up (or better still, you’ve sold everything!), you can walk away, cash in hand, and enjoy the rest of the show!  The Flea Market will open for bookings soon, so keep an eye out for that!

    For all of the info on the traders, games, flea market and more, head over to the Battleground website: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/%5B/url%5D or Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BattlegroundShow?ref=hl

    Don’t forget to tell your friends about the event and we hope to see you there!
