Rejects on Tour - Skirmish April 2016


Only 2 Rejects made the long drive up the A2, to visit the April show at Skirmish, I bought various bits and bobs but I tried not to spend too much, I was hoping to save my pennies for Salute.

Skirmish is now under new management, its now being run by Craig at Redcoat Models, who like most of the traders at the show, sell models rather than wargames figures. But you can always pick up a bargain or two at little local shows like this one, so its well worth a visit!
It sounds like Craig the owner has got big plans for Skirmish, so watch this space!! Here's a link to the Skirmish website.

The next Skirmish show is set for September 18th, this year....I'm trying to get Postie to put on a game there, you never know???

Below are a few pics form the show....

  1. Some nice looking games on show there. Like Postie's trench system...is there any terrain he hasn't got?

  3. Some cool figures.
    How long does it take to set up a board like that first one? It's really elaborate.

  4. Pity I missed the show but I'll be at Salute on the 16th......and when isn't Poistie parting with large amounts of cash at Col Bills?!? So long as we benefit from Stuarts inexhaustible resources far be it for us to complain.

    1. Well you will book up hollbobs when there are shows to go to won't you?? At least you're not missing Salute again though.

  6. Nice looking games :)

    Probably wise to save the pennies for Salute - the Essex lads are counting on you to cover the cost of their stall ;)

  11. Now that guy in the Rainham club looks very handsome I think there should be more pictures of him, very distinguished! Very talented and extremely trustworthy, you can just tell by his face and demeanour.

    Good to see you there mate.

    1. It was the best looking game that's for sure. Apparently according to Clint, the chap who made it works in the design dept at the BBC???
