Salute 2014

Well after an early start yesterday morning, we left at 04:45 and I got home at 20:30 absolutely knackered. It was a great day, met loads of friends and saw loads of great things I'd like but I had made a couple of pre-orders and I was determined not to increase the size of the lead mountain.

Here's the stash;

  • Walled farm from em4. This is a great piece, the doors opens and you can use the piece separately and it's fairly timeless being usable for a got stretch of history. 
  • Dux Raiders - now the Picts, Irish and Scotti can now go and raid post roman Britain.
  • A couple of paint palettes from Foundry, French Dragoon green and charcoal grey.
  • Counters for Dead Mans Hand.
  • Warlord Games - Rabble Rousers, Cardinal Richleu and the Witchfinder pack for my Three Musketeers project and the Out for the Count pack for some 7TV horror action finally  Another bottle of super glue activator.
  • Crooked dice had the new 'not' Doctors for me as well as a pack of their 'Autons' and the new assistant. I'm loving these figures and can see I'm going to have to collect more of these in the future.
  • I was able to pick up the Jet Age and Air War over Korea books for Check Your 6! recently and I needed another pack of Mig-15s and some of those tiny decals.

My only unplanned purchase, but wasn't lead so ok, was two paint racks from Troll Trader, these are excellent value at a fiver each. I got a Foundry / P3 style and a Vallejo style.

I managed to take about 200 photos, I will need to have a good look through and get the best shots uploaded during the week. I'm running through Sharp Practice later and I will pop some photos up.

I think I did see you yesterday at some point but didn't have a chance to see hi. Glad you had a good day. Tim D

Great day Paul, it was worth the trip just for the Farm Complex, now for a scenario to use it.
