It’s that time of the year again: Crisis! For many years this has been a staple in my event calendar so I was happy to visit again.
With the date set after the original date for the Brexit, I feared a lot of traders would stay away from the journey to Antwerp. Maybe some of them anticipated this and stayed away, but most of them were there. However I felt there were less visitors than last year, although this is difficult to gauge in an event of this size. I heard some German among the crowd, but not so much English than the past few years. We’ll see what next year will bring when the Brexit *might* have happened 🙂
Most traders are the same than the previous years, although there were some eye-catching booths: Wargamer’s Games’ 1666, Ouroboros Miniatures, Discworld, and speaking about staples: Freebooter Miniatures of course 🙂 But the personal highlight for me was Atlantis Miniatures. It was there first time at the show and they caught a lot of attention! They have been running a bunch of kickstarters in the past (I’m not a fan of those so that’s probably why I don’t know them), to build the line of miniatures and planning a skirmish ruleset next year. I resisted in buying some of their stuff, but will probably order some when I have a bit room in my painting schedule.
I bought some brushes, paints, nothing out of the ordinary. So that left me with plenty of time for photo’s and videos, the results of which you can see below:
