Rejects on Tour - SELWG 2015




On Sunday Rejects Surj, Ian, Postie and myself drove up to Crystal Palace for our annul trip to SELWG.
I bought a few bits and bobs during the day, I'll show off my new shinies later in the week. I ended up with a sore throat at the end of the day, I did more chatting than buying!
Also, I got to try out my new camera, well its actually my mobile, but its got a better camera than my actual camera??? So hence the funny shaped pics!

  32. I agree with you - Waterloo (but possibly Nantwich) would be my favourite too... what on earth was Postie spending £130 on?? :o))

    ReplyDelete

    1. The Nantwich game was very nice but Waterloo beat it. Postie was topping up his 25mm South American Wars of Independence, He boughet loads a few years ago, but has still to put a lick of paint on any of them.
