Northern Militaire 1977..I was just about to turn 16..


Just found some old Battle magazines that I had stored at my mum's. I remember buying these at the time....more to follow at some point. Northern Militaire was the highlight of my year...I didn't know about anything local to Manchester and certainly didn't think about travelling around the country on my own back then....I led a very sheltered life unless it involved camping out somewhere for Motorhead tickets..
Files should be large enough to save and then peruse at your leisure if you can't read them here.....
Nice little review..



November 6th 1977 - next day was my 17th birthday 'Happy Birthday to me....'


Also found a later advert (Military Modelling March 1988) for a 'Dragon Miniatures' Dwarf Chariot - now me and my pal Boki Gromdal over at Stunties can't work out if this is a different 'Dragon Miniatures' to the one we've already posted pics of (Stunties and Lost Minis) - addresses are different parts of the island for sure - if anyone has any ideas please let me know as we haven't got a clue.....

I always enjoyed Battle. Back in the 90's I managed to snag a lot of back issues in some mouldy old book shop in Hay-on-Wye. :-)

I've only attended two UK cons - Colours (twice) and Euro-Militaire (once). But that was back in '91 and '93.

Very interesting. I didn't get o a convention until the early 80's (my first was a Games Day in London). Stunning tie in the top left second picture.

Hee hee ! I was there too as a 15 year old.

I've just sent that picture of a cute Peter Berry to the man himself.

Luckily no one got me on camera.
