Cavalier 2017 - The Pics




Last Sunday was Cavalier time, the Rejects first show of the year, so myself and Postie jumped in my Go-Cart and headed on down to Tonbridge. There we met BigLee, we were early so we popped up to the café for a quick cuppa and a bacon roll!


Me and Lee had a joint shopping list, we were looking for some bits and bobs for our joint
entry into the last bonus round of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. We did get a few bits, not quite what we wanted, but it still looks pretty good! More on that at a later date.
I bumped into a few blogger, Dave, Bob, ( I was given a pressie by  Bob, more on that later too?) Al and of course Clint, while taking the first pic in this post I had a chat with John Treadaway of Miniature Wargames fame, who was taking the same photo for his mag!
