As promised here's part 2 of my Impact showreport. Why two showreports, while I usually do just one on any show I attend? Well this one rather had more involvement on my part then others do. First off is the fact I participated in the demo game for Black Powder organised bij Jan-Willem, second I participated in a painting contest for the first time in my life and last but not least this is the only convention of this kind in the Netherlands I know of and I want to see it succeed and grow over the following years.
Let's start with some more pictures from our Black Powder demogame:
Jan Willem and me dicing off:
some close ups of the action taking place:
Some of the other fun going on is next.
The SAGA demo in full swing:
An Urban War demo:
The Scrapheap challenge which proved immensely popular:
The Militia Brabantia guys doing an Ancients demo (sorry I forgot which ruleset they used but the mini's looked awesome!)
This dragon was painted by a guy who eventually took home two prizes, one for best fantasy monster and one for the best battlescene. You guessed it: I forgot his name too...shame on me!
In the historical single figure category only two models were entered, mine and this Octavia by Josse. Upon seeing it I really thought I'd had it because come on, who doesn't like this mini?
Scibor miniatures, who could sadly not be present, had offered some excellent mini's and conversion packs. Each winner was allowed to choose a mini from the offered sets, I chose this Celtic sf warrior.
Most of these pictures were made by others so here's a big thank you to Jan Willem and Bert. A few pics came from this Dutch newspaper article and here's a movie Koen made as impression of the Impact convention.
Hope you'll be inspired to come along next year!
