The wargaming glitterati gather in a top London venue for the announcement of the winners of the 2019 Battlegames Awards for Excellence.
The call for nominees only went out on Monday afternoon, but despite the very tight timescale, we had an excellent response - certainly enough to justify handing out these awards.
As this is the inaugural event, we allowed nominations of people's favourite ever rules, games, miniatures, books and so on, so expect to hear some old-time favourites in amongst the bang-up-to-date suggestions.
Congratulations to all our winners who will be hearing from me shortly with their award logos which they can use on their websites, marketing material or just stick up on their office wall if they prefer. But well done to all our nominees too – a wide range, as you'll hear! – because they represent the tremendous range of talent and inspiration in many guises that this fabulous hobby can offer.
So, ladies and gentlemen, sit back, enjoy your chicken in a basket and a few beverages of your choice and celebrate with us these awards celebrating the best our industry can offer.
Oh – and Happy New Year!
P.S. Of course, do feel free to add your thoughts, comments and alternative nominees below.
