So, with that in mind, I was all set to go on a nice day out to the Ducosim show. And promptly forgot to activate my alarm clock! Great start. After a uneventful train ride and a nice morning walk (including a 5 minute heavy rainstorm :( ) I arrived at De Flint in Amersfoort where Ducosim is held. I thought the 7 euro entree fee is a bit high for such a small show, but then again maybe the 10 euro fee I pay for Crisis could be considered cheap.
With a detour via a specialist games store selling card game addons, that had tons of different card sleeves, I found the perfect ones for my Pulp Alley deck, and with enough to spare for future expansions. 3,30 euro feels like a bargain.
Then straight to the Inquisimunda table. Evin, Mo! and Smeets were already there, still working on the paperwork for Mo!'s warband. I took some shots of the table.
Btw, almost everything you see is lasercut by Evin. He cuts in foam and wood, and made things like custom made counters and the simple and elegant stands for the walkways.
When I had a walk around I couls see 2 massive FoW tables, next to us were 2 By Fire and the Sword tables with Dick and Rutger demoing, and there were even a few LotR tables, as well as X-wing. Jan Willem van der Pijl brought his 1 page rules Pirate game which I really shoould try out sometime.
Shops seemed to focus on boardgames and X-wingalmost exclusively, not too many miniatures, only Malifaux and Flames of War were in any volume. 1 trader did have Pulp! Figures and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and even Ronin, but with no money to spend I let those pass.
I did get stuff though:
A M16 halftrack (I just need the turret to convert a PSC one), 3 miniatures (a goblin just for his funny face, a post apocalyptic Samurai for Inquisitor and a Squig for use in Frostgrave/Mordheim) plus 3 Old Crow Geckos new in their pack, for scatter scenery for Inquisitor, though tbh, seeing how big military jeeps are getting, they could serve in 20mm as well. I'll give them really generic paint jobs.
Had a really nice day, though I think it did not show as I'm still sick and a bit short of breath. Will go to bed early today and have a nice relaxing sunday :)
