VITUAL WARGAMES CONVENTION

Supporting the Wargaming community

wargaming is all about community

We believe that the wargaming community is awesome. Whether it’s online on social media, or in a local club or vets night, the support, encouragement, sharing of ideas and skills and sense of camaraderie is almost universally there.  Our hobby is a social one, even though we have all likely spent hours painting our models, sat on our arses on our own.

During the COVID-19 pandemic many events and conventions will close. Traders and friendly local gaming stores often rely on these events for many things. To promote their product, fund development of new ones, keep stores open on the highstreet etc.

We have been trying to think of a way we can help them out and came up with the virtual wargaming convention

What we intend to do is promote, every day, a business that would have been an exhibitor at a local or national convention or event. We will also promote as many local venues as me can, spreading out as far as we can from the southwest.

We also intent to record special podcasts where we will explore all the exhibitors at a convention to release for the date of the convention so that people can sit down and listen along while they explore what would have been on offer.

Follow along with the #vitualwarcon hashtag to keep up

All the best,

Dan and Ben (The 2Ps)

LISTINGS

The following is a list of all the exhibitors due to come to events and conventions in the coming months. We have organised them into categories and given a brief description to help people find what they are looking for. Some companies produce lots of different products so don’t be surprised if you see a company twice. We will be updating this regularly over the coming months so please check back often.

Those companies in Bold and or Italics we have shouted out on Twitter, where if you search the #virtualwarcon you will find some more of our musings on them. We hope to get through the whole list.

Please take the time to look through, check out those you may not have heard of, you may find something awesome you weren’t expecting! Have fun!
