Battleground 2015 will be taking place on Saturday November 28th, at the Queen's Campus Sports Hall in Stockton-on-Tees, TS17 6BH, running from 10am until 3pm.  
Hosted by Pendraken Miniatures along with Middlesbrough Gamers Club, this show was formerly known as Smoggycon, but from 2014 became Battleground!

Entry to the show is only £3 per person, and we'll be keeping our successful free entry policy for SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) and free entry for the kids as well (Under 14's)!

We've slightly increased the trader selection this year, with 37 companies currently pencilled in, covering a huge variety of genre's and scales.  New traders for 2015 include:
- Grubby Tanks / Britannia - Bringing a huge selection of 20mm goodies and filling a definite gap in our previous trader selection: http://www.grubbytanks.com/catalog/
- Studio Miniatures - 28mm Zombies, Sikh Wars and Northwest Frontier, plus more: http://www.studiominiatures.com/
- Cozzmic Cakes - After they were unable to attend last year, Cozzmic will be bringing their sugary fun to the day with some cool themed cakes: https://www.facebook.com/CozzmicCakes?fref=ts

All of the traders can be found here: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/#!traders/c24i2


We'll also have a fantastic selection of display and participation games lined up, encompassing wargaming, modelling and RPG'ing, which we'll be announcing closer to the date.

And as another addition to this year's event, we've added the 68th Durham Light Infantry living history group to the show, bringing a selection of the 68th's incarnations throughout their history.

The Flea Market is always a great option for any unwanted goodies, where for only £1 per half hour slot, you can sell as much as you like, with no commission at all!  You can deal directly with the buyers, answer any questions they may have, and also keep an eye on your goods. Once your time is up (or better still, you’ve sold everything!), you can walk away, cash in hand, and enjoy the rest of the show!  The Flea Market will open for bookings soon, so keep an eye out for that!

For all of the info on the traders, games, flea market and more, head over to the Battleground website: http://www.battlegroundshow.co.uk/ or Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BattlegroundShow?ref=hl

Don't forget to tell your friends about the event and we hope to see you there!

Unfortunately Gateshead Gaming and Caliver Books are unable to attend this year, so we'll have Tor Gaming and Leven Miniatures taking their place instead.  We've also got some more games confirmed:

DISPLAY

Independent Wargames Club - Battle of Rossbach in 30mm, using Black Powder rules.

This weekend is the deadline for all trader bookings, so we should have the finalised trader list ready early next week.

Fabulous to see this home grown show really taking off.

As always far too far away for me to justify the cost of coming but hope its a massive success. I noted on Faceache that there will be some show deals for Christmas. Will those deals be available to those that cant make it through website orders placed over the show weekend?

The show is far away for me too but weather permitting I hope to make the show after a 3 hour plus drive, perhaps with a chum or two.

I wouldn't think so unfortunately, but it would depend on the traders really?  Some of the show deals are regular offers that they have at other shows around the UK, others are one-off special deals they've put on just for Battleground, so you'd probably have to contact them individually and see what they say.

The show is far away for me too but weather permitting I hope to make the show after a 3 hour plus drive, perhaps with a chum or two.

Excellent, good to hear you're well enough for travelling and we'll hopefully see you there!

Its the tightfisted Yorkshireman in me Leon Smiley I once dropped a penny and it hit me on the back of the neck as I tried to catch it before it hit the ground.....

Will Pendraken be offering any show deals via the website?

Unfortunately again, probably not.  The multipack vehicles is something we do at every show, so folks can come along to their local outing and grab those. 

And on the Warband offer, the website isn't built to cope with having VAT/non-VAT items in the same deal, so it would be adding VAT to the rulebook making it £19.20 for the rules.  Or it would have everything as 0% VAT and would discount the armies to £22.50 each.  That's obviously a problem at our end and something we need to chat with the webguy about.
