Visited Phalanx 2019 today in St. Helens (NW UK). Very much enjoyed the visit and have put up a blog report with some observations and pictures.

Thanks for posting this report, Norm, enjoyed reading your description and insights. I donít find the sodium orange at all a problem in the pictures.

Thank you for the show report - really good to read the many comments as well as
looking at the eye candy.

Some fantastic games on show, even if they were quite small.   I particularly
liked the Italian Wars - beautiful presentation.

I did pay a brief visit, but not as long as in the past. Tight purse strings led to very few purchases, but I did buy some nineties and a Spanish building from Pendraken.

An interesting and thoughtful report, Norm, and some nice photos, despite the lighting.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Thanks for the write up Norm.

I visited for about 60-90mins - had my daughter in tow so wasnít dallying too long! Her view was we kept looking at the same things!

I only spotted the same 10mm SYW game as Norm. And it seemed bereft if players. It could have done with more figures to give a spectacle. The 54mm game looked good though figures looked more HYW than WoTR. But size matters!

Spoke to several people running games - the Italian Wars one was very impressive. There was also a AWI black powder game that had a good sweeping look to it

I bought a mixture of stuff. The new WWI railway from Pendraken- I was hoping the Leon would have the new pirates too, but as I hadnít let him know I was after them he hadnít packed any!

Got a couple of 4ground Wild West buildings both on discount.  And a few 6mm buildings.

The yellow lighting isnít great - but you do get used to it fairly quickly. The bring and buy always feels like more effort than itís worth.

I was there for four hours before I came to the same conclusion Smiley

A few years ago, I bought some paints from Leon under said sodium lights, only to get outside in real light and realised they were the wrong shade ... by some way!

It's a term that I've been aware of for a couple of years.

I use this term because I think it is hilarious that auto carrot cannot correct itself.
