The Rejects at SELWG 2011. (Picture Heavy)

Five of the Rejects turned up for the SELWG show at Crystal Palace with good intentions but little money except for Postie who paid for us in, it was a good show ,seems to have been well attended and there seemed to be more traders. This show for me was a primarily stock show (paints, varnish, primer etc.......) stuff I hate buying but a necessary evil, picked up some 20mm Soviet WW2 plastic armour and some Waffen SS figures from Friend or Foe figures.

What follows are some pictures and a few words, never take enough pictures (and probably missed a lot but the show is for buying) but there was a lot of nice stuff out there.

Apologies if I put the wrong name with the wrong game or forgot the the name altogether.

The queue to get in, the child has seen Ray and is running away in terror.

Aerial view, the numbers were good I hope.

The bring and buy was well attended.

Some pictures from "Poland Fights" by the Shepway Wargames Club, lovely stuff.



...and the roofs come off.

Arbouthnots Aeronautical by the League of Gentlemen.



Very, very nice.

Operation Barras, Sierra Leone, 2000, forgot the club name (apologies) but I'm a sucker for helicopters and there stuff was lovely.



Loughton Strike Force, Budapest 1945, seen before but amazing and makes me drool and moist.


They've added a brothel and some ladies of negotiable virtue...

...and working flame effects.



GLC Games Club, Battle of Chickamauga....





A fellow rejects bag with lunch, drink, gloves and other strangeness, Biglee needs watching and Ray needs to stop wearing shorts.

Crush the Kaiser again but it's just such nice stuff.





...and the day ended under the golden arches when Postie bought us lunch, a good day out ended with a very happy meal.

  6. You ended your day at Mickey D's. I can't believe it. The choppers are fantastic. Nothing beats the sight of a chopper rising up from behind a hill out of nowhere, bringing menace and doom. After seeing all 3 of you guys pictures, I feel like I've been there. Very nice job.

  7. Nice pics. The McDonalds at the end was a nice suprise. But I don't understand why the Submarines and Aircraft Carriers look like they are flying over the water. Could just put them there without the long stand.

  8. Great pictures. BTW I was very impressed with the WWI Trenches from the game Crush the Kaiser. I was particularly impressed with the water effects in the craters. I went over and was about to ask what material they used for their water effects when I realised the water was rippling... they had just filled the craters with milky tea!

  26. What a great turnout. I wish I could come out to one of these. The details on these things are always amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am amazed at the level of detail in those things. That must take a ton of work. But in my opinion, what stood out the most, was the guy in the blue shirt with his sexy pose and his gut hanging out of shirt (3rd photo)

  29. All these photos are always impressive.... but I keep hoping for the alien invasion models... that would kick it up to the next level I think!
