Three of the Rejects myself, Fran and Postie travelled up the A2 and on into London for their annual visit to SELWG at Crystal Palace on Sunday, there we met another two Rejects Big Lee and Richard with his young lad Thomas in tow. We all spent too much money as per usual!! I needed to restock my paints so spent most of my money on paint, I was a little alarmed as to the price of Vallejo paint nowadays, £1.75 a bottle, I realise companies have over heads and all that, but that's just taking the pi$$. I also had a chat with Simon from Parkfield Miniatures about his up and coming War of the Liberators figures, I must say I'm very tempted they look very, very nice!! I also bought 6 different wagons and baggage from Magister Militum for my 15mm FIW project, and then as we were leaving proceeded to knock the owner over!!! I was carrying a massive box of The Last Valley items, trees and whatnots for the invalid Postie and I just didn't see him crouched down on the floor and walked striaght into him! he was damn lucky I didn't squash him and end up sprawled ontop of him....poor chap!!
There were some awesome looking games on show, Unfortunately some idiot didn't check the batteries on his camera, so he, meaning ME!! only got a few photo's of a few games, luckily BigLee had 2 spare batteries which enabled me to take a few more pics before they ran out as well.
I think the best looking game was from Shepway Wargames - Polska Walczaga (Poland Fights) scenario, unfortunatly my camera was dead by then, but take a look at Lee and Fran's blogs they must have some pics!!
Here's a few photos from the show
Let me innnnn!!!!
