York Wargame Show 2017

York Wargame show 2017 (Vapnartak).

Vapnartak is a major UK wargaming attraction that enjoys a good range of traders and helps get the show scene under way in the north, as gamers come out of winter hibernation, looking to be inspired for new projects and completing old ones.

This post covers my perspective on the show. Please use the 'read more' tab for the rest of this post.
