The Rejects and a Tiger at Salute 2012?

The Rejects met Paul Darnell at Salute this year and myself and Ray had been following his blogs for a while, had a chat with him at the show, took some pictures and went our separate ways but we would meet again seemingly, Paul runs two blogs Battles in Miniature and Hadrian's Wall Live , he is a prolific model maker (very good and can turn his eye to any piece of terrain you could want) and has several publications to his name, more information on those blogs (go visit).

Anyway his latest post on his Battles in Miniature blog is about a WW2 game he will be hosting at Salute 2012 and the rejects will be assisting on the day (now I hope Paul knows what he's getting himself into because we're gits when we game and Ray has terrible social skills).

It's a 1:1 late war WW2 skirmish at a radar station......anyway go over to his blog and read the post.

This is one of his old WW2 layouts from issue 3 of one of his model books.

The Rejects at Salute 2012 and participating and not being asked to leave hopefully (I'm talking to you Ray), could get in free aswell (£12.00 extra to spend on figures).

  8. Now if you can keep Ray out of trouble long enough, he will have a chance to shine on the staff at UK Salute to build up his self-esteem.

    After all last week he was demonstrating the entire host of the Iliad, painted according to the List of Ships from Book VIII IIRC, but yet called himself sad, at the same time. The thing was awesome.

    Now we have only 364 days to prepare him for the Olympics, where he will be the UK ambassador to the world, as he already is for many thousands of us readers.

    Maybe some uniform shirts would be in order, like those other staffers had last year.

  9. Bloody Cheeky Git!!!!
    I think we're gonna have a great time!
    Thanks for the kind words Mekelnborg!! and I've still got the Trojans to post yet!!
    T-shirts are a great idea, but Fran's will be expensive, have you seen the size of them bellies of his, he may just have to wear a cloak!!

  13. These models are just amazing. Speaking of WWII, I just saw a documentary/reenactment of the destruction of the Casino Monastery in Italy. Now that was a battle.

  23. Looking forward to the game, but everyone will have to undergo a Health & Safety Risk Assessment, before it, as you just can't be too careful these days?

  25. That's very cool. Good luck on getting those benefits, but we all know the gaming on terrain like that is what it's all about. It'll be a real privilege.

  29. That's an amazingly realistic setup he has. I think the secret is having an outdoors looking backdrop.
