NEW FOR 2023 'WARGAMING ZONE'
Steve Eardley, Leek
We are delighted to bring a dedicated WARGAMING ZONE to the Midlands Toy Soldier Fair. Here's some further information from some of our exhibitors.
Rum & Resin Printing
We find ourselves in Giltwall: a city whose walls were once gleaming with gold plating, now stripped and dull, lying in ruin. Evading an unwelcome conglomerate as it gradually takes over the land, Enid, Shen, Iliana, Brash and Drock, push on towards the resolutions of their pasts, and their heroic glories...
While we started printing to enhance our own Dungeons and Dragons experience with 3D-printed miniatures, we went just a little bit overboard! Now a business venture shared between James and Amy, Rum & Resin Printing endeavours to supply you with high-quality models and busts at reasonable prices.
We print to order with our four (soon to be six!) SLA printers using a bespoke mixture of premium resins. Whether you are a tabletop RPG fanatic, someone searching for the perfect gift for the DM in their life, or you just want a Frost Giant model for their mantelpiece (don't we all?), there's sure to be something that takes your fancy.
We are Geek Retreat Stoke
We will be hosting a display of our Tabletop war gaming games. Namely Warhammer 40k, Warhammer age of sigmar, Killteam and Bloodbowl. These are all games we play in store and use models we sell and teach people how to build and paint. I will be sending a few lads to help show off each of the activities. I'm certain it will be great success
