A quick trip up the A2 on Sunday morning and me and Postie found ourselves at Skirmish Wargames and Toy Soldier Show, run by Craig at Redcoat Models.
We met fellow Reject BigLee in the foyer along with fellow blogger Dave Crook from A Wargaming Odyssey We've invited Dave along to Reject HQ for a bash, no dates are set yet, but we'll look forward to his visit.

a Scildweall T-shirt from Greg Art of War.

Big Lee did a great write up last week about the adventures of Greg at Art of War, so I thought I'd 
add a few links too after buying my first T-shirt from Greg. I was gonna go for the Ego Sum Spartacus, but Lee had the last XXL!!!
So If you haven't already go and like the Art of War Facebook page.
or go straight to the online shop, here. for your Scildweall shirt!!!

  10. Very comprehensive phot-shoot of the show, but Posite seems to have photo-bombed himself into far too many shots imo.

  12. A most entertaining report, and informative: I'm now forewarned that I should be on guard should I find myself in the vicinity of any cake at a UK wargames show!

  13. It must be difficult to live such a day with so many beautiful tables, I would have wanted to play everywhere, especially El Cid and The Battle of Sidi Kup...Gorgeous!
