Salute 2012 ...Meet the Rejects!!!!!




Four of Posties Rejects Fran, Postie, BigLee and myself are all off on a jolly to Salute this Saturday. We've all been saving up our pennies and will hopefully go on a mad spending spree. I'm very imaginatively hoping to find some 15mm FIW or NYW figures all painted and based at the bring and buy for a stupidly idiotic price......fat chance of that!!!

As some of you may already know, we were supposed to be helping out Paul Darnell on his WWII game, but unfortunately he had to cancel. This would have been ideal as it would serve as a great meeting place for fellow bloggers to come and meet the Rejects and have a chat. So back to the drawing board we went.
We did then suggest the idea of meeting in a local pub, but we've decided that this would take out to much time from the show.
So what we've decided to do instead is to meet up at the show itself, it just seems the easiest option for all. So the four of us will be loitering around the Seating area on the right in the pic below from 1o'clock to around 2 o'clock.



We will of course be available to sign any autographs and for just a small fee we will allow photos to be taken with the 3 chimps and myself. Fran's willing to do any pose........yes any!!!! Clothing optional??

Also once again as some of you may know we're putting on our first game at a show, Broadside in June. For the show we've had T-Shirts made up, so we look like we know what we're doing????
We trying to decide whether we should where them at Salute or not,  we don't want to look too big-headed ( all too late for Fran!) So were gonna leave it up to you guys, do we where the shirts or not????

David Beckham eat your heart out!
As you can see, myself and my special friend Fran were let out of the Madhouse for these photos. We both have our names above our right teet, with the Posties Reject  logo above the left. (Note how Fran has sucked his gut in for the pic!) And on the back we have the name of our blogs.
They didn't come out exactly how we wanted, but, hey they only cost £15 each.
Christ! Look at that grey hair!!!!

  9. There will certainly be others wearing 'team' shirts so why not the rejects on tour! I will certainly try and pop other with the 'Provost Marshal' whom I'm dragging to his first 'Salute'. As for the grey hair; well at least you've still got some, mine started to retreat some time ago!

  27. Hmm, looks great. Enjoy yourselves plenty. Here's a tip, sew your names and addresses inside the collar or somewhere, then, when you get lost, someone can help you find your way home. If you want to be found, that is...

    I've given you both the same post so as not to show favoritism.

  30. If you see someone with a `Far Side` imprinted t-shirt, give him a stomp, that`ll be me. Otherwise, I`ll be there at around 1 o`clock and prepare for a dramatic, adhoring Oscar winning acting performance to give me autographs and love babies HA
