Call to Arms 2014 Photo Review

There was more to Call to Arms than our big Leipzig game and although pic heavy, I think that this post will show that wargaming is alive and well in New Zealand.  The variety of games, periods and general outlandishness on display was great. Once again the Warlords put on a superb little convention. My only complaint was that the mince and cheese pies from the cafeteria tasted bloody awful. Worst $4 I have spent on food in donkey’s years.
