Tactica wargaming show 2014

Every February, gamers from all over Europe travel to Hamburg, Germany, to visit probably the best wargaming show on the continent and beyond. The Tactica convention is being run by a few mates from my club and it’s already in it’s 9th year. The major difference to other shows: all tables are participation games! I had a fantastic weekend meeting old friends, playing with and adoring beautiful miniatures and tables. I took over 400 photos and here’s a small selection to give you an impression of the event.

My friends Frank, Johannes and Jens worked 1,5 years to build this massive recreation of Sword Beach in honor of the 70th D-Day anniversary. It was to big to play on! Check out their blog for WIPs: http://swordbeach1944.wordpress.com/

For the first 4 hours on Saturday I took a photo every 5 seconds to create a small video of the surging crowd on Sword Beach. Look closely to spot the Perry Twins and Aly Morrison!
