I must admit the day became a blur, I picked up most of the stuff on my list quite early, Ironclad Miniatures Steam Tanks, GZG new stuff, Sprays, Paint, Flock, Antenocitis Workshop (not planned or budgeted), Fireforge Plastics, Warbases, a few figures from Hasslefree and Peter Pig....I think.
I had a list and still came away forgetting to get something!!!!!!
I went to one trader for 2 small packs of new figures quite early but they didn't have many cast as they didn't think they'd be popular (wouldn't even offer to post them on), they never heard of the internet?
Ray even found the ACW Fremantle figure I've been looking for...and paid for it!!!!!
A good show still despite what I've heard from some quarters (bad acoustics?????), a hot muggy show, the layout fecked me over once or twice and I could be seen looking in the map guide for a trader but then I was knackered, the games whether participation or demonstration are great but I go to show for figure, stock and scenery buying, I take pictures for my blog and others to see who couldn't make it but primarily for traders.
Who doesn't like to look at a figure in the flesh before buying it?
Started a small list that night of stuff I still need!
Next year we're thinking of going to different shows especially like Triples or Partizan!
Some more pictures from great looking games..........
Some of the bloggers at the meet up, who is that handsome chap at the back?

This figure reminded me of the welcome some gamers may recieve and I called it "Bag Check".
