Wargames Show with two hours sleep or SELWG 2012!

Posties Rejects last tour date of the year....

Last Sunday I dragged my hairy ass out of bed after 2 hours sleep and after finishing another 12 hour night shift wondering why but then I'm a Wargamer and a show is a show and so the SELWG 2012 slow two step began...

I took a lot of pictures but most of them are all over the sodding place but their are better out there (see some links below first picture but not Ray's), I remained static for a lot of the show with brief bursts of buying (GZG, Painting Supplies and Perry Miniatures the main beneficiaries!) but a lot of it was a blur, I believe I met a lot of people but as it went on the heat and chlorine got to me....

We ended up at the golden arches, made it home and was later shouted at by the family to go to bed as I was acting weird(er).....

......there are a lot of pictures of Ray but maybe that's the lack of sleep or honing my stalking skills, his big head, the bright red top or....?

ClintRayDavid Crook, Postie and Lee in the queue.....

The show was well attended but maybe not as much as last year

A steward spots a problem in red....

Lovely WW2 game from the Crawley boys, I believe it won best in show....




Another lovely piece of WW2 but forgot name.......... 

Ray yet again seen bothering people.......

....and traders!!

Battle of San Tarzgarotto, First Carlist War 1837 from Redhill Games, this to me was the best in show....






Postie suffering back pain again, Ray said it was his wallet.....

Postie and Ray have a moment......

  6. They even had lights on theirs? That's epic but maybe it should be against the rules, you can't compete with something like that.

  7. I'm glad you ended the pictures where you did - the next moment could've been awkward.
    Looks like quite a show! And the one that won Best in Show was amazing.

  11. Good photos. Nice looking miniatures. I like that lit-up French town and the Carlist battle.

    That poor little female security guard in the safety vest must have been in awe of all the manliness there. "WINK"

  26. sounds like a good place but not so nice experience on your part. lets hope that you feel better for the next one. trust me I would make sure that ray was kept in line. besides I have got 7 years experience in martial arts and I am a good long distance runner, I assume ray has neither. so even if he snuk off during a game I would catch up... just trying to get invited along :-) and if you two are ever in NZ I will come and meet you.
