Crisis 2015 Antwerp picture report

08 Nov

As some may have noticed, this blog went to complete silence the past 6 weeks or so. The reason is simple… I wanted to make sure I finished all the terrain and minis for our game at Crisis in Antwerp yesterday. At that point I decided, that even the time needed to write a blogpost might have been too much. But it paid off since everything was ready in due time. But before I start catching up (once more this year), here is the annual picture report from Crisis showing the games hosted there! Hope you enjoy it! (I will try to comment where I know what it was.)

Up first the mandatory aerial reconnaissance of the first hall. The view is a big more restricted this year, so it does not give you the whole vista… sorry!

    A lot of very nice pictures. Obviously more than I took. Thanks for mentioning our game but it was Plancenoit rather than Ligny.

    It was great to meet you again!

      Argh, that is what you get for posting things in a rush. Changed the “location”. Thanks for pointing that out!

        No problem. Too many tables, too many games. 😉
        Thanks for correcting.

      Thanks Fran. Hope to see you there one day. Although before you moved, it would have been an easy trip. 😦

    Thank you for these terrific pictures, Burkhard, I have read some reports on Crisis on the Too Fat Lardies list but great to see what it looked like. The quality of the games is exceptional. Hard to say which one I liked best but the Great Northern War game looked especially fine.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your group’s Berlin game.

      It generally is a great show and well worth to attend.

      If I remember correctly, the Great Northern War games was by Barry Hilton / The League of Augsburg and it actually won a price on the day!

    Great pics! Nice overview of all the action! Seems like there were tons of great games on show once again

      Yes, there were.

      I have to say, i was a bit sad, that you could not make it this year!
