Looking forward to it.

I’ve just uploaded a copy of the show programme folks listing the traders & games & their location.
Sorry it’s in landscape – I can’t seem to turn it
As always, although it’s accurate now, there may be last minute unforeseen changes.

Thanks Craig and thanks Mike for the re-orientation:). I presume the Private Sellers room will be upstairs?25/11/2022 at 23:24 #180504
Mike, Thanks for turning the programme.
Steve, no private sellers this year. The two who initially booked both cancelled. We had already made the decision to ‘retire’ the upstairs room as the stairs leading to it restrict access to those with limited mobility. We have turned the space we were going to use for the Private Sellers over to games instead

I made it to Reveille on Sunday, despite Wales last gasp capitulation to the Wallamoroos on Saturday and it taking two hours to get out of Cardiff afterwards.
The show emotionally reinvigorated me. Not quite as many traders as pre-Covid perhaps (come back, it’s a great show!) but well attended (I arrived c1030hrs and the car park was full and I had a nice stroll down the hill to wake me up). Good mix of traders and games, although again 28mm dominated both. I concentrated on terrain items and found 6mm from The Square to feed my Silures v Romans obsession.
Good to speak to a few of the usual show suspects, particularly John Curry from the History of Wargames Project and his brother. Missed Steve J if he went and Craig was busy selling things to people every time I passed, so a belated hello to them.
The games were good looking, the western gunfights in particular were tempting (where would I put all the buildings?) and the Bill Hooks game looked great and seemed to be attracting a crowd. The Wings of War game played on (over?) a birds eye view of the ground map was very pretty for a an aerial game and looked like fun. My last foray into WWI dogfights was with 1/300 aircraft on lego brick stands depicting height levels (idea stolen from Andy Callan in the 80s) on a bare table. I suspect the rules were more accurate but the Wings of War Game looked nicer.
Regrettably I had only a short time available to attend so after an hour and a half I had to leave. The catering was, as always at Lincombe Barn, excellent and reasonably priced.
Good to have Reveille back and I hope it goes from strength to strength. Thanks to all involved.28/11/2022 at 14:06 #180574
I must have left just as you were arriving Guy. I spent maybe an hour there and had a good wander, with some nice games on show, even some that were not 28mm or larger. I didn’t take any photos as it was busy and tricky to get some good shots as punters wandered past. When I left it certainly looked busy but Magister Militum a noticeable absentee. I didn’t buy anything as the few things that did pique my interest I already had covered. Shame really as I like to come away with something but more than happy to support the show. Good to have it back after three years!30/11/2022 at 20:46 #180680
Thanks for your comments guys, I’m glad you enjoyed the show.
SorryI missed you Guy – it was really hectic for the first couple of hours.
Magister Militum are a difficult outfit to replace but unfortunately they are not currently trading at any shows – except possibly Salute. They weren’t at this years Attack, (Devizes), Colours (Newbury) or Warfare, which are all bigger than Reveille & a lot closer to home for them.
We hope that a couple of our old regular traders will be back next year – they just couldn’t make this one. So hopefully it’s onward & upward!
