Some SELWG 2013 pictures, brushes from Ian, pimping and some Ronin Samurai metal!

Literally only some pictures as my camera died only an hour in to the show (I could swear I checked it, must be a Clint and his 2014 SELWG pictures moment!), I received my brushes from Ian (what a nice guy) Willey, promote some good bloggers competitions and a purchase fro SELWG 2013 to add to my Samurai forces and to have a game of Ronin.

First the pimping.......




Jonathan over at Palouse Wargaming Journal!

SELWG 2013 was a good but wet show, met some fellow bloggers and friends, I thought the trader count was down but hopefully the ones that were there did okay..........



Compulsory aerial view of the main hall..........



Bring and Buy, not a lot on offer but well attended.......


Lovely WW1 1914 game from Crush the Kaiser..........








Compulsory blog whore picture............


Some tables have better drinks and nibbles than others........


Great WW2 game "Attack on Ponyri" from the boys at Loughton Strike Force........








Excellent WW2  game from the boys at Deal Wargames Club, Russian amphibious assault on the Japanese forces on the Kurile island of Shumshu.








Beautiful  participation game from fellow blogger Simon Miller over at BigRedBatCave.............







Ray handed over my brushes from Ian at the show........


Top notch but I thought Rosemary brushes were better:P


A little loot (birthday money) from the show, 28mm ronin from North Star figures.........


....to go with the very good skirmish rules "Ronin" that I picked up a few weeks ago......



Well I do need to start using my Samurai again.............

  3. Yes, use the Samurai! Nice figures you picked up. Looks like a well-run show. Sorry your camera died so early in the day. Think I would've been hanging out near that one table with the fine serving ware.

  9. I did look carefully on the picture titled "Compulsory Blog Whore Picture" but I could not see Lee anywhere! Once again thanks for your kind words on the day. I also have Ronin rules. let me know if you want a game sometime and I'll get and paint some figures.

    All the best Clint

    1. You sort out a game with the rules and I'll supply the figures old boy!

    2. We can do that. Probably best to chat in emails. But you want f a reject game (with several involved in the "Shed of War") or just a head to head between us to get the rules firm in our minds?

    3. Probably a test game first mate.

    4. Everything a test with Fran, including his moosh!

    5. Have emailed you a couple of possible dates for a game.

  12. Looks like a pretty decent show. friend of mine went and enjoyed it (or maybe he just enjoyed leading others astray?).

    Thanks for the report anyway, despite the brushes ;O)

  13. Cheers for the pics! Have you tried the rules yet? Fantastic Brushes that really made me chuckle.

  14. Great post Fran! I love that shot of the burnt out Panzer III in the field - very well done.

    I'll have to look at these Ronin rules so I can put my ill-gotten mob to good use.

    Also, that last pic of your Samurai collection is the t*ts! Bloody amazing.

  17. Enjoyed the show, General. The scenery was beautiful to behold.

  18. Looks like a lot of fun. Down here on NZ don't have anything on that scale. Those brushes should produce some pretty good figures for you. Looks like you did well there.

  24. Nice pics from SELWG Fran. You seem to be missing the contractual Postie shot though.

    As for the brushes, I'm sure they weren't in that state when Ian packed them. Could someone have sabotaged them? ;)

  35. Great pics from the show and it looked like there were some very interesting games going on.
    I'd be very interested in knowing how the rules work out at some time too.

    Did you have to use a wide-angle lens for the Blog-whore photo ? - just asking.

    ReplyDelete

  38. Nice shots of the event here also. Though I think you got the bottom of the pile for brushes there.. seems they have seen better days mate! So jealous of the fact that there are so many shows over there.. so little time before I am there and can begin to attend them all!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Looks like it was a good show, and some nice loot too!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Pity your camera petered out, but I am grateful for the shots you did get. Those games and models looked very tasty, indeed! Great luck in your painting of the ronin figures!

  41. Cool game pics, but nothing compared to that samurai table. Wow.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Looks pretty grand. And your Halloween costume is pimp? And love the brushes. Do have any women showing up for this? Other than Anne not sure whether there are other women who does excel in these?

  46. I just saw these brushes and your mug over at Rayolla's. You guys are all so funny, it's great to read these posts.

    Tim just got back from a gaming conference and got to meet some bloggers as well. Blogging is so much fun and very cool that you all print pictures and have fun with it.

    PS: Yesterday was my last day of work. Felt weird today. But not a bad weird.

  47. Looks like it was a good time. I'm always blown away by how detailed those tiny little sets are!
