Our next show, the Joy of Six at Sheffield Hallam University, is just over two weeks away, on July 3rd. The show is making a come back after a couple of years off with over twenty 6mm games and a dozen traders including the organisers, Baccus.
Since this is a specialised 6mm show we take a very cut-down subset of our ranges:
Full range of 6mm Hammer’s Slammers models, including a good selection of detachment packs
Full range of 6mm Iron Cow models, including a full range of army and company packs
Full selection of building/scenery models of all types, including packs
Full range of Squadron Commander fighters, both individual and blister packs
The complete 2mm Small Scale Scenery range
We’re hoping to have some new releases lined up for the show, which we’ll preview before the day, so keep checking between now and the 3rd.
If you would like anything from one of our other ranges, you can order it in advance and collect on the day. You can either place an order and pay in full using the collect in person option on the website, or just drop us an email with a list and pay by cash or card on the day. Since we’re on holiday for the week leading up to the show, we’ll need any orders well in advance to give us a chance to get them ready – the cut-off date is June 22nd.
Riverside Kelham, Saturday 2 July, 7pm to 11pm
To mark our wedding that is taking place two weeks after the Joy of Six, Lindy and I have arranged a social ‘do’ on the Saturday night prior to the show. There is no disco or loud music, this is just a get-together. This will replace the ‘Beer and Curry’ night that we usually host for those of you staying overnight in Sheffield. We’ve got a venue located in Sheffield’s infamous Real Ale Valley, and we would love to see lots of you there.
We have mentioned various buffet options and the one that seems to be the favourite is the BBQ. The price of this is £15pp and we will supply the pudding. You will need something to soak up the ale, as there will be lots of decent beer to purchase at reasonable Northern prices.
Hickory Smoke Beef Burgers or Vegan Unconventional Burger
Moss Valley Hot Dog or Vegan Moving Mountains Bratwurst
Crispy Bang Bang Chicken Strips
Salt and Pepper Corn on the Cob
Potato salad (VG)
If you would like to come, please do get in touch with us by Friday 10th June, so that we can confirm numbers and any dietary requirements.
We will pay for the meals, and you can settle up with us on the night.
The do will take place at the Riverside Kelham, starting at 7pm and finishing at 11pm.
The pub is located just off the city centre and is easy to get to by public transport, taxi or even on foot.
Please confirm your attendance, even if you have been in contact with us previously.
My filing system is atrocious, and Lindy is away from the desk right now.
Through a combination of circumstances, cancellations, last-minute COVID withdrawals etc, we’ve reached June before we finally get to our first show of the year. It’s our ‘home’ one, Broadside in Gillingham, on Saturday 4th June at Medway Park Sports Centre (formerly the Black Lion for those who know the area).
As always, we’ll be happy to take advance orders. You can either send us an email with your order and pay on the day, or alternatively you can place an order via the website (using the Collect in Person shipping option to avoid shipping charges) and pay in advance. We’ll be taking cash and credit cards on the day.
Because of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee holiday, we’ll need orders by the end of Tuesday (May 31st). We’ll be casting and packing on Wednesday, but we’re then closed for the two bank holidays before the weekend.
If you attend then you should get hold of this little chap – he’s Leofwine Wargamerson, the mascot/emblem of the Milton Hundred Wargames Club who run the show. We were very pleased to have been asked by MHWC to produce a figure for the 10th anniversary of the show and the first 400 people through the door will get one. He was sculpted by the versatile Martin Baker, who’s done a great job of reproducing Leofwine’s casual pose from the MHWC logo.
