Skirmish Toy Soldier and Wargame Show Sept 14


Several Rejects Fran, Postie and me, made the long drive up the A2 to Sidcup, for Skirmish Toy Soldier and Wargame Show, last Sunday, there we met 2 other Rejects BigLee and Mrs BigLee, who can be seen on the left in the pic above and the Newbie Reject Clint, who was playing in his local clubs Sudan game.
Dozy bollox (me) forgot my camera so I had to use my phone instead, so the pics aren't top quality, but there you go...................


We had a good chat with Stu aka Col Bill
For some reason he wanted a photo with us???


Not sure why Posties grabbing poor Scott?


Looks like a WWII Force on Force game??



Herne Bay Wargame Club - Gangster Game



Rainham Wargame Club - Colonial Sudan







Privateers of London - The Battle of Rhium 429 BC. Naval 1/1200 scale


Ashford Model Club (funnily enough?)
A WWII game?



Old Guard Wargame Club - Songs of Blades & Heroes. Fantasy Skirmish Game



Skirmish Wargames - Up Sidcup Creek without a Paddle. Vikings. 40mm



Not sure what the game was and who they were??
Anyone know?






I didn't buy a great deal, just a Foundry Captain/leader for Donnybrook, Queen Cleopatra from
 Col Bill's to use as a civilian for Tangiers, why are there no Arab looking civilians anywhere in the figure world??? and a pack of stools for a little bit of scenery
 once again for Donnybrook.


Last thing was these lovely looking ladies, they're Redoubt Minis from their FIW range
Had a bit of a chat with Matt he paints up some really nice looking figures. 
Postie bought a Ancient Greek sacrifice dio base....very nice!!!

We had an AWI game after the show
more from that later......

    4. Matt: Lurker and Ray, but mostly Ray. Okay, both of them. But to be fair, I call my husband a goober too. It's just a silly name for people I care about. And it's fun to say, goober.

  8. I think the Unknown game, is the Krush the Kaiser guys, (Paul and Ian) doing some WW2 for a change. Also the First game is not WW2 but African bush wars by some chaps from SELWG using the Force on Force rules. Lastly the Paddle steamer was built by Tim Wade (Frointline Wargaming) for his personal use as he wants to use it for Colonial as well as ACW games in 15mm. I hope some of that helps.

  9. Nice pics Ray. I can't believe that you bought so little. I'm used to seeing you come back with at least 15 grams of lead in your pockets!

  15. Great photo review of the show Ray.
    Eureka do some sets of arba civilians, traders, slavers and a harem (!); Foundry may also have somein the darkest Africa and Indian mutinay ranges, Old Glory Chaos in cairo may also contain one or two useful types and Steve barber also has some fantasy Ali-baba types too.
