Malta at WMMS!

As I mentioned, Sunday was the West Midlands Military Show. We took our Malta game along to display, with the improvements we've made since Wargamer in December. The show was a good day overall, it seemed like there was a healthy turnout and there were plenty of traders and games around. To top it off, we also won the Best Terrain award for our game! 

Here's a few shots of the game in its latest guise.

The board with troops deployed

The Ottoman advance begins

The view from the other end!

The street fight begins in earnest

The Turkish galley impatiently waits outside the harbour

Another shot of the board as the Turks assault the boom towers

The North Africans take the boom tower!

Valette looks on from the battlements

A view of the hall on the way to lunch!

The galley finally enters the harbour

The Manowar, complete with sails!

Our Best Terrain award!

I also got a few shots of the Best Demo Game, an ECW offering from Leamington using the To Defy A King rules. It was a nice looking game overall, but for me personally it was missing that special something that grabbed me.

Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the other games on offer, but there were several others that looked very nice. Overall, a good day was had by all and much money was spent! More on that later...


  1. Congrats on the reward, well deserved. It must have been the hinge details that swung it for you (no pun intended).

    1. Thanks Matt! I certainly think the hinges played their part in the win ;)

  2. You had time for lunch and taking photos, gosh I just dream of playing with toys on terrain like that. Well deserved win.

    1. Thanks Chris! Glad you like it :) I will try to take more pics of other games next time!
