Cravant game - close up

Just before the Salute show becomes a dim and distant memory for us all, here are some bonus photos that I hadn't initially planned for. A visitor to Salute show - Alan Daniels - took these great pictures on the day and kindly sent on to me last week. Alan had a macro lens and snapped some fantastic close ups of figures and is happy for me to post some here.







Some of them have created a great atmosphere I think, which you don't normally get with pictures of games at shows - my favourite is the last one of the Scottish spearmen, which seems to create a sense of movement in it. Thankfully the figure painting just about holds up to intimate inspection!

I never get tired of looking at your armies and terrain. The vignettes are so creative.

They look amazing.

As you say, great atmospheric shots there. Especially like the ones that show the battlelines with the troops to the front being out of focus!

Now these were worth waiting for!

Often close up pics of a large game can really give you a feel for the game.

Bravo!!

Very atmospheric pics! The knight charging through the river is a brilliant idea!

Chabad London in this state, a person dedicates himself to G-d not for the sake of physical or even spiritual reward, but solely for the sake of G-d’s glory, with no thought of self. By acting in such a manner a Jew becomes “ever the more loved by G-d.”
