Salute 2017 coverage Part 6

Many publishers wait for Salute to release the new wave of miniatures or introduce their new games systems. There are plenty of new products just wanting to be discovered by any "Saluter".

Travel Battle by the Perry's is one of those projects and its probably the best I have seen there.

Basically it's the portable version of wargames. On a small travel box you can find a plastic tile with built in textures as well as individual terrain details and also some miniatures regiments to battle with. It's cleverly done and surely many will get this box. The tiles are also compatible with each other so if your group of 4 friends all buy a box you can build a table. I liked it so much that I would love to see the other mainstream games investing in their portable versions and release them in a contained box set. 
Looks so fun to game in that tile on that scale.

Many brands showing off their progress and strength consistently every year, I did not cover most but took a few pictures of one that I usually cover every year since its debut on Salute 4 or 5 years ago.
Amazing how much Hawk wargames has done with Dropzone and Dropfleet.

Sarissa MDF terrain making a good show yet another year. Here's some of their 15mm terrain, they mostly do 28mm, so its good to see mdf on a smaller scale.

Interesting stand with some resin options for the painters.

From one of my favourite stands comes a couple new space monsters in resin and also a chunk of new plastic sprues. Maelstrom Edge keeps on going stronger and looking better and better.

The plastic miniatures kit are interchangeable with their other plastics but the best bit about them is that they remind me of the cool darkish necromunda vibe. Surely something easy to convert to other systems if you choose to do so. The sprues looked packed with loads of useful bits. There was also more concept art hidden on the stand that I was not allowed to take pictures, but I can say that I cannot wait to see them sculpted.

Until next update enjoy the weekend.
