Phalanx 2012

Annual pilgrimage down to St Helen's for the Spartans annual Phalanx convention.

Arrived at about 12am, Bumped into a few of the Furness Wargamers who had made their own way down and got my £3 entry fee reimbursed for being a club member.

Seemd to be more demo games going on this year, or possibly just better laid out. The local LARP group had a table to themselves as well. As per usual with LARPers they were heavily into latex.

Did not buy much, some magazines, some cheap Army Painter primer and some packs of 15mm Protolene 'jackal' warriors from the Critical Mass stall. These, at a push, can act as proxy Vargr to face the proxy 'Imperials' I got at Triples. Should have more than enough figures to do some of the basic Tomorrow's War scenarios.

Had some deep fried chips from the cafe for dinner, which was 'as good as ever'; You would expect a sports centre to have something a little better. (But not as extreme as at Triples where they had vending machines for Whey Powder.)

Left at around 3pm, just as the monsoon season was starting.
