This weekend Claus and I were in Hamburg to the annual Hamburg Tactica event; one of the largest tabletop wargaming events in Northern Germany. It’s a great venue with lots of small and large games being played. This year’s theme was D-day and several WWII games were going on as well as a massive diorama of one of the landing beaches (I’m not sure which). However one could also enjoy and participate in a huge number of games set in other historical periods as well as Sci-Fi and fantasy games.
Of course a large number of stores, retailers and societies show up with stalls and stuff to sell. All good and a great way to spend a Saturday. That being said, this year we really hit the bring-and-buy section of the venue. I think we both managed to do quite a lot of good bargains. As you can see from the last image we gathered all our stuff for the fun of it. A joyous sight, right?
I made it back to Denmark with some nice 80’s citadel miniatures: 2 Chaos warriors, 15 skavens, a wizard, a ghost, a knight with horse. To this you can add some other stuff and minis, but my greatest purchase was a Mighty Fortress in mint condition and still stored in the original box. I got it for next to nothing (20 Euro). Hurra!
