Probably the quickest show I have been to...it really wasn't that big - a few stands, a couple of games, a couple of re-enactors and a coffee van parked outside.
I bought a some cheap resins walls (not that I need any more) and some paints - roll on Salute.
I also had the fortune to meet Legatus Hedlius (http://legatuswargamesarmies.blogspot.co.uk/) - his blog is always a great read... we met and said hello and an invite to the shed was cordially given.
A few photos of the day...
|There were more people there when I left !
|The local reenactors
|All credit to these guys for asking if I wanted to join in
|These guys didn't - wasn't entirely sure of their role - they weren't selling anything - maybe they were life size models
There were a few games on display but I do wonder about the merit of slinging out a few trees and lead pieces on a green table top. If these events are there to drive interest in the hobby there really does need to be a concerted effort by organisers to put on the very best displays.

|Lots of tanks so its flames of war
|Really big robot - you guessed it GW 40K
I have left the best til last - seriously. These are really nice models look a bit like the creatures from that Jim Henson movie - its not labyrinth but I can't place the name.
The model tree was stunning

It is a seriously good range of figures - just not my cup of tea
Until next time...
