Something slightly different today, my buddy Spud Tate contacted asking if I could put a shout out for the upcoming event in Sheffield named Chillcon.

Asylum Wargaming and Chilling Wargamers bring you Yorkshire's new must-attend event, ChillCon! Sponsored by S.L.A. Industries: CS1 and Word Forge Games, ChillCon brings you the U.K.'s premier vendors of wargaming goodness.

The event is being held at Ecclesfield school, Sheffield on the 27th of May, and doors open at 10:00, with refreshments available.  Tournaments for both Bolt Action and Kings of War are being played, as well as a bring and buy stall.  

An impressive list of traders rounds out the day. For tickets or more info, head on over to the Chillcon website, for what is looking to be a great day of gaming.
