My haul from yesterdays Salute was a little larger than it was supposed to be!
There were a few unexpected buys and a few disappointments as well!
I was mainly interested in civilian type figures for Donnybrook and that's what I came away with.
Met up with quite a few fellow Bloggers, which was pretty cool. I stupidly didn't take any pics, but Carl from Hitting with a Double one did, so I'll pinch his pic when he posts it up.
I'll be posting my pics form the show soon....
Impulse buy No1
A Naked lady having a bath, from Col Bill's Depot Battalion figures.
Not quite sure why I bought it and how I'll fit it into a scenario, but hey its boobies!
Impulse buy No2
Once again, not sure why?? But every skirmish game should have a hidden snake shouldn't it??
It looked like Warbases were doing well, it took me a while to fight through the crowd and have a look at their new animal figures. Had a quick chat with Martin and Spider Loki. and I bought a selection of the Cows, sheep, dogs and goats for Tangiers as well as a Hay, Hand and Turnip cart, not forgetting a couple of wheelbarrows!
Impulse buy No3
More Depot Battalion figures from Col Bill
A preacher and the preached upon.
The biggest amount of dosh went to Redout Minis.....loads of Civilians from their ECW and Three Musketeers ranges! Nom nom!
I also hit Dixon Miniatures, for a bag of dead figures, a Pioneer and an artillery set.
Impulse buy No4
Another Pioneer set this time form Reiver Castings and some Scottish civilians form their
Border Reiver range. I've also got a few bits and bobs coming in the post that they didn't have with them. More dead figures, (just how many of these do I need??) and some tools
Impulse buy No 5
A selection off civilian figures from Midlam Miniatures. I'd not heard of these before, but they sold a few Arab looking civvis which of course I need. But I loved the torches they sold the most!!
The Governor and his Daughter from Black Scorpion and a bar room brawl scene from Dixons
I also bought 2 packs of dead and wounded from Warfare Minis and had a chat with League of Augsberger's Barry, Toggy and Gerry.
Lastly loads of dice!!
Now I've just gotta paint the buggers! But I suppose I should paint the actual figures
that'll be doing the fighting first??
