Sheffield Triples 2013

It's triples weekend and since its only about 40 mins away it would be rude not to go, unfortunately I knew I was going to be on a strict budget, I've a stack of salute purchases I've done nothing with so I wasn't too bothered.

I was really there to take a peek at the games and nosy around a little for ideas for pulp gaming mostly.

Seemed like a pretty full show, only 1 trader appeared not to make it, but there were a few noticeably absent from the circuit too, no em4 who I am sure have been at triples every other year i have been, this was a little annoying as I was after some bits from them.

There games looked good, there were a couple of really nice big display games, really nice looking Mediterranean town here:

Some lovely ruins on this 20mm WW2 board

Several wild west games, one from great escape games new game

And what appeared to be cowboys vs zombies

There was this excellent Madmax game, with its own sound and lighting rig and a dozen guys dressed the part.

I picked up just a few bits, spending a little over a tenner on myself and picked up some bits for my brother under the general request of stuff for objectives and plot points for north Africa.

Pretty good day all in all and I got home all enthused and managed to finish off some bits of terrain for pulp gaming and some Victorian steampunk miniatures which I'll also be using pulp alley rules with.
