Get ready for the Joy of Six 2019

May 21, 2019

As we are now approaching the end of the month of May, it’s that time of year when thoughts turn to THE Wargaming event of the year.  I am, of course, talking about the incomparable Joy of Six 2019!

For reasons which remain obscure to even me, JOS continues to grow and the line-up for 2019 only goes to show this in action.    We have more traders than ever before.  This year attendees will be able to lighten their pockets and fill their bags at the following trade stands:

GM Boardgames

Heroics & Ros

Christopher Morris Books

Brigade Models

Leven Miniatures

GS Miniature Workshop

Warlord Games

Rapier Miniatures

Baccus 6mm

Wargame Emporium

Scotia Grendel

Commission miniatures

Timecast models


Then there are the games.   Some of these have been two or three years in the planning and all will be spectacular.   The range from the tiny, to the truly epic, and most will be there for you join in and play.

And with more requests for spaces coming in, I expect that list to grow before the show.    In addition to all of this, we’ll have a Bring and Buy and that that maestro of small scale brushwork, Dr Mike will once again be opening his painting clinic to all-comers. 

Add to all of this, cheap local parking, very convenient public transport links, nearby hotels and the best catering on the show circuit, there really is no excuse to miss this show.

Not into 6mm?  Come along anyway if only to see why 6mm gamers are so passionate about what they do.   You can get in for free on a ‘6mm Sceptic’ ticket and it will be a cheap day for you as there won’t be any discounted boxes of 28mm plastics or burnt mdf buildings for you spend money on.

The Joy of Six 2019 will be taking place on Sunday 7th July at Sheffield Hallam University, Howard StreetS1 1WB.  Doors will open at 10.00 am and we’ll kick you all out at 4.00pm.   We’ve a facebook page which should keep you up to date and allow you to ask all sort of awkward questions.


Now if all that was not enough excitement, on the day prior to the show, (Saturday 6th July for those of you who haven’t been keeping up), Caccus will be holding their  annual Baccus Open Day.  This is where the dark portals of Baccus Megacorp Industries are flung asunder and we offer tours around what has jokingly been called a ‘manufacturing facility’.   It is a great way to see behind the scenes, to see how we do what we do and perhaps get some sneak previews of what is to come in the way of new releases in the coming months.   Places are limited and bookings made, but we do have a few places left.  If you want to come to the Open Day, please get in touch with Baccus 6mm.
