This Saturday saw gamers throughout the south west of England swoop down to Exeter for Legionary 2011; a combined show and tournament. Numbers through the door far exceeded expectations as hobbyists sought out the large number of traders and games that were available.
All considered it was a great day.
The traders included:
Heroes of the Dark Age
Lesley’s Bits Box
Plastic Soldier Company
Space Vixens from Mars
Special thanks must go to Lesleys bits box who went "above and beyond" when helping out with prize support.
The bring and buy sale was bustling with activity, but I never saw if a massive space ship complete with working lights ever went. At £30 it looked a bargin, I just could not think how I would ever use it!

The demonstration boards were generally of a very high standard and I could not resist but take photos of a few. Hope you enjoy the pictures and if I can remember which is which I will add some captions.
See if you can spot a white drink cup in each shot!
