I must be one of the last bloggers to get their Salute post up, time just seems to run by so quickly nowadays???
Anyway on with the show.....which started nice and early for me, Postie and Dave. You may have noticed on others blogs that I was given a 2 press pass tickets for the show, which was not only free, but allowed you early access to the show!! So we set out early, planning to get to the Excel centre at around 8.30, so we could get in around 9.00.....or so we thought??? Some twat, (yes me?) actually forget these free press pass tickets!! So a quick u-turn on the A2, sent us hurtling back to Gravesend!
Thanks go to my pal Dave C, who met us at Nell's Cafe, with the tickets and off we went...again!
Luckily we still got in the show quite quickly, around 9.15, and who did we bump into almost straight away??
None other than Loki....already buying a snack!
Postie and Trevor from Redoubt minis
The queue, Fran's in there somewhere??
On your marks, get set, Go!
The Warbases Team
Martin, Diane and Glen
Looking very busy?
I spent an untold amount here, including some great new wagons
for the TooFatLardies new rules!
There were a few really stand out games for me, that I'll include in this post.
The first being this masterpiece of a game, from fellow bloggers Michael, aka Dalauppror, Jonas, Steve, Jan and Jesper.
The Battle of Foteviken 1134
Is that beer, I see before me???
The tents were works of art in themselves!!
Love the part made longship!
"I promise the Beneath the Lilly Banners Irish supplement book Is coming out soon, Ray!!"
cried Barry...Toggy just shook his head??
Note the dosh in Barry's hand, somehow (it was one of those days?) I managed to
pay again for the figures, I'd already pre-paid for....doh!
I hadn't a clue, until Barry emailed me the next day, what great service!!
Crewe and Nantwich - The Bloody Siege of Bristol, ECW 1643
Another work of art, infact this one made me sick!
And made my feeble attempts at wargaming look quite inadequate!
I was totally in awe!
Well done chaps!
Learn to paint the Army Painter way.
The Seven Years War will always have a special place in my heart.
Wonderful looking figures and terrain!
Oh for that lottery win......
The Battle of Wilhelmstadt, 1762 - Bill Gaskin & Friends
Part 2 soon......fingers crossed!
