Its all over, all the build up, all the lists and all that walking about. And what a day it was too! Myself Fran and Postie made it up to the Excel centre, for our yearly visit to Salute. There we met up with BigLee, to handover his Rejects shirt which he duly put on, there were pics, but I'm not gonna to put them up, for fear of repercussions!!!! BigLee's got me on camera with some cake and I understand it was messy???
I borrowed Postie little camera so it'd fit nice and snugg in my pocket, unlike my giant one, but guess what twat forgot to swap over the SD card....ME! Posties well known for his lack of upto date gadgets, his SD card is only 128MB's and was half full already, so there's not as many pics as I'd have liked, and looking at other bloggers photos I seem to have missed out seeing a hell of a lot of other excellent games.
Our planned meeting with fellow bloggers went very well, meet and chatted with many an unfamiliar face, but I'll post more on that another day.
|Wait for me!!! The Lurker and Postie race off.|
|Postie, telling The Lurker off for using the wrong toilet.|
|The queue, it took us about 30 minutes to get in.|
|In my opinion and later the judges, the best looking game at the show.|
Corunna 1809. by Essex Gamesters. Made all the more poignant as it was dedicated to a recently
deceased member of their club, Paul Mumford.
|Dues Vult! by Fireforge Games - The Teutonic Knights were beautiful.|
| I'm not 100% sure on the title of this game, but it looks like a ECW battle|
and it looked excellent. Any ideas anyone??
|Not usually my thing, but you just had to admire all the terrain and figures here.|
Slowing the Tide by Chemins de Feu
|Aspern-Essling - Only 1 photo was in focus, dammit! Not sure who the club were?|
|Sebastopel, by Battlefront Miniatures & Wargames Illustrated.|
I had a good chat with Barry Hilton and Dave (Toggy) who were running the game.
|I bought Postie and Fran a Burger King on the way home, Fran was a little miffed|
he had no cheese in his Whopper.....Miserable Git!
