Cavalier 2018



Last Sunday some of the Rejects jetted off to the sunny climbs of Tonbridge to 
attend our first show of the year, Cavalier 2018.

Me and Postie drove up together and met BigLee in the carpark. Like most gamers we sneaked in the door and headed for the Bring & Buy.
Not spending a penny!



Upon entrance it didn't take long to bump into Honoury Reject Mike Sayce.

  3. Bloody great report Ray and so many fine photos of both games and wargaming identities -
    “Colourful characters” may be another term. Thanks.

    1. It did look a good game. I did take loads of photos of the game, but most were too blurry.

  7. Many a handsome game, Ray! My favorites would be Malta and Girona. Where does one get that walled city in the 1796 game? I want one too!
