Took the SWMBO out on Sunday (eventually) to Rochester for lunch and a wander round the old part, when to my surprise I spotted this lovely store Rochester Games and Models and would you know I had my camera with me and took a few shots for the blog (SWMBO was eyeing me suspiciously by this stage, I explained I needed shots of Rochester Castle for Ray for a project my goddaughter is doing), dropped in to say hello but the owner James Langley was away for a few days at a wedding and I asked could I take a few pictures for the blog and he said that would be great, business was good on Saturday especially for the Games Workshop items, there were Ospreys, rules sets, 28mm plastic figures, 1:72 and 1:35 kits plus loads of little extras ( bought a Rapid Fire supplement myself, always buy something even if it's only a paint).
I think the shop has potential and along with the couple of second hand book shops in Rochester it's the only thing I visit apart from the the mixed grill I got at JD Wetherspoons (very nice but the place is starting to get tatty). What I'm trying to say is I order off the internet like nearly everybody does but I prefer to see the item or touch the item rather than wait for it in the post, I know online it can be cheaper (rarely with models but there are exceptions) but I want to see the product sometimes or I want it now and don't want to wait for it in the post like these movie by mail services I'll just drop down to Blockbuster and rent it.
So support your local hobby store or you'll be saying where did that shop go and wondering why it closed.

He should have a website soon.
It was pissing down, cats and dogs weather and I stepped in a poodle (geddit?).
Lovely gentleman filling in for James whose name I forgot to get!
