    We’ve picked out some highlights and offers for you to look out for this year:

    Peter Dennis, author and artist for Helion Publishing’s acclaimed range of “Battle For Britain” 19th century paper soldier books and games will be running an AWI demo game from the Helion stand on Saturday only. Peter’s artwork has featured in many Osprey titles over the years, so no doubt you have some of his work on your bookshelf, so make sure to drop in and say “hi” and see the new AWI game in action as well.

    Lesleys Bits Box will have brand new Games Workshop boxed models at 15% off RRP, as well as a large collection of Epic models which will be onsale at the show this year

    Colonel Bills now stock the full range of the near-legendary AB Figures 18mm scale Napoleonics – unit packs only at the show I’m afraid, but still, wow! They also carry the complete EMP Games figure ranges – some extremely eclectic sci fi, fantasy and historical figures included! Finally, if you pre-order anything through the pre-order facility in their online shop for Britcon collection you will automatically receive a 10% discount on any pre ordered item. This offer includes any of the 4Ground, Flags of War, D’Arlo and Belt Fed Gaming items too…..how good is that?? Contact Colonel Bills via their website for more details and to place your pre-order

    KR Multicase will be running some show special offers – buy 3 or more Standard Card Cases – £1 off of each one, 5 or more Standard Card Cases – £2 off of each one. Buy any Kaiser or Aluminium Case and get a Standard Card Case for £15 (Usual price £26.50).

    Alan at Hoka Hey Wargaming will be launching another Border Reiver family and promoting their new range of resin terrain models.

    Instant Armies will again be attending Britcon, which they tell us is one of their favourite shows of the year. This year they have 28mm and 15mm figures again painted and unpainted, as well as Team Yankee and FoW at great prices

    Andy at Ainsty Castings will be at the show both playing in the Saga event and also exhibiting the full Ainstry range, as well as Gripping Beast Saga, Footsore Miniatures and the North Star ranges as well.

    Dave Lanchester will have 100’s of Osprey boosk on sale, all priced from just £5 and some at 5 for £20. This year Dave will also have a number of boardgames (vintage) dating from the 70/80s, as well as lots of rules (vintage/retro) from just £3.

    Asylum Wargaming are back agains this year, and sell West Wind Forged in Battle and War and Empire ranges. A great chance to buy yourself a new army with these new and existing ranges with a Britcon special offer of “buy 5 blisters get one free” (blisters at £10 per pack).

    Donnington/Ancients & Modern will be offering the Mortem et Gloriam ruleset at a discounted price of just £40 at Britcon this year, with every purchase also getting a FREE MeG Card Holder as well! Simon Hall will also be running a Mortem et Gloriam Q&A at 5pm on Friday in the Cafeteria to discuss the MeG rules together with Richard Jeffrey-Cook talking about MeG list development. This is open to any one – so whether you are a current player or an interested party you are welcome to drop in and find out more.

    Britcon also has a well stocked Bring & Buy – Britcon is great for a Bring and Buy with almost 200 players there all weekend giving maximum time for your stuff to be seen, and sold. We also help you out by giving you the chance to complete your Bring & Buy entry form in advance – download it from our website to save time and see if you can cover the costs of your weekend’s shopping by clearing out some long unused figures and models!
