Deadly art or just a modern wall clock?
On the weekend of the 25th and 26th October it was finally time for DFFcon 2014!
Jesper, Michael, Thomas (based in Denmark) and your's truly have been painting on the Lund 1676 project for little more than 8 months, so it was a real pleasure to finally see all the miniatures lined up on one table.
The poster we printed for our Lund 1676 Game.
We had a great reception from the other players and visitors at DFFcon, and needed not worry about any shortage of willing participators. Besides the actual Lund 1676 participation game and a Demo Game of Osprey's new Lion Rampant Rules, we also brought a little Mini-Shop of Warfare Miniatures with us. This was very well received, for which we thank the many people who supported Barry's wonderful miniatures range and rules.
The battle of Lund rages on.
The Warfare Miniatures mini-shop can be seen in the foreground.
Warfare Miniatures are launching a new range of 28mm Great Norther War figures,
which we naturally wanted to promote to the Danish wargaming society, seeing as Denmark was one of the nations in the alliance against Sweden and Charles XII during the GNW.
The poster we printed to announce the coming
Warfare Miniatures GNW range.
Below follows a range of pictures from the days at Tøjhusmuseet in Copenhagen.
Michael also have posted a wonderful set of pics from our time at DFFcon.

A great setting with plenty of atmosphere.

Beautiful terrain from moulded foam.
The airplanes are attached to the thin rods, and fastened
into the terrain board with a needle at the end.
WW2 Arnhem game.
A table set up for a game of Chain of Command.
The Layout of the room.
Very pleasant setting for an afternoon of wargaming.
The museum chronologically displays artifacts from Denmark's wars.

Impressive collection of uniforms from medieval to modern.
Thanks for stopping by for a read!
What a beautiful place to play! Great looking photos, WW1 aviation table is my favourite table...ReplyDelete
Indeed it was Phil, and that WW1 board was full of so much detail. Interestingly the planes were from shapeways.com. So, there were "printed" in size 1/700 using a plastic or resin finish. They looked great! Something I'm thinking about for WW1 naval in the future.Delete
That looks like an amazing game and what a place to play - wow.ReplyDelete
Our Lund game was very well received, and we owe a big thanks to the Royal Armory for letting us use their great venue.Delete
Looks like a museum well worth a visit...ReplyDelete
It certainly is - and we discovered that the mayor Danish museum are now operating with Free Entrance! So, if ever in Copenhagen...Delete
awesome photos, great looking table setup's for games and love the military display/show cases... thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Thanks Phil, and you're certainly welcome! It was really a history nerds dream come true. Between the games I strolled around the exhibition. Just a wonderful way to spend a day.Delete
Very sad I couldn't join you :-(ReplyDelete
It really would have been great fun for Micke, you and I to get together for a game. But, who knows, maybe we'll see each other at Salute next year or at DFFcon 2015, which will be in March!Delete
Like I said just an awesome backdrop to play in! Great looking games as well!ReplyDelete
Thanks Christopher - yeah, really cool venue, hope to join in again next year. Also considering Tacticon for 2015 and I'll definitely be at Salute in April.Delete
Greate DFFCON report Sören ! Indeed a very nice trip to Copenhagen, and with a great tour leader:)ReplyDelete
Certainly was a nice trip, and thanks for the kind words - I'm glad you enjoyed the weekend in my former home town. I look forward to seeing your photos from the National Museum and to kicking off our Lion Rampant project!Delete
Great looking games at an equally impressive venue. That weapon spiral is unexpectedly cool too. Best, DeanReplyDelete
It really was a great weekend, and a fantastic venue. Now the sights are aimed at Salute come April next year!Delete
