|By the Pike Divided|
Just a quick post for this evening, have been to Salute with the usual pals Postie, Fran (the Lurker), Link, also our other pal Surj came along, it was his first show in over 10 years. I'm absolutely knackered, we all must have walked about 8 mile, and with a belly like mine, that's some going!!
I met up with a three fellow bloggers and had a good chat with them, namely, Paul from Battles in Miniature, Dave from Saxon Dog & Darrell from la journey. Paul and Dave were both running the same game Miniature Militia presents By the Pike Divided, which was an ECW game set in 1644, beautiful figures on an very unusual board which was kind of a rounded diamond shape. Darrell and co were playing the Battle of Verneuil in 1424, once again the terrain and figures were superb. I'll be posting a few more photo's from both these games plus lots more in the next couple of days.

I guess like most gamers I overspent at the show, but came away very happy with my purchases, I was a bit gutted I never got to Old Glory in time and they'd sold out on the new Bluemoon 15mm FIW figures I wanted, gggrrrr!!!. Now I'll have to wait until they get more in, in a couple of months!!! A great time was had by all, Fran bought some 20mm tanks and figures for his What if Operation Sealion, Posties bought some painted 100 Years Wars figures to add to his already massive collection, while Surj bought some books on tactics.
Fran, The Angry Lurker was nominated for a blog award a couple of days ago, (tut! bighead) and has also nominated my blog, which was very kind of him, I'm sure I'll have to pay the ginger whinger back some how, he did say that he only nominated me because, I said I wouldn't give him a lift to Salute??? Bloody right too!!!!!
