Salute Loot 2017

Posted on May 1st, 2017 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Finally got around to posting my Salute Loot!!
I didn’t do half bad, my first purchase were 3 packs of torches from Midlam miniatures. One day they will be added to some figures, ready to set a village alight!!
I had a chat with Martin at Warbases, who showed me his new Roman range, some of the new buildings are quite something, check them out if you’ve any 28mm Romans. I bought 3 packs of animals to go with the ones I bought a few years ago, and 3 of the new Roman wagons, these will be added to my Donnybrook collection.
I collected a pack of Redoubt Woodland Indians from Col Bill and Belt Fed girl that I’d pre-ordered.
After having a chat with Barry & Toggy on the Warfare Minis stand I bought some mounted French Dragoons, now I already own some Dragoons from different manufacturers, but liked the models so thought why the heck not!
On impulse I also splashed the cash at Sally 4th’s stand, buying “The Ancient Souk” market place, once again with Donnybrook in mind, Tangiers here I come again, or it would do just as well in England or Flanders. I also bought 2 packs of tents from Sally 4th….you guessed it, Donnybrook again.
Now my actual plan for te show was to buy some more woodland Indians and have a search for some early Settlers/Militia types for Bacon’s Rebellion, So I picked up a pack of figures from Reiver Castings, they may be a tad late but I think they’ll do. which brings me on to my last 2 purchases.
Painted figures!!
I can’t remember the last time I bought painted figures??

Grubby Tanks were flogging Injuns for £3.50 a pop, so I helped myself to the above, 3 Musket Indians and 3 Commanders. 

Hmm? 12 Handweapon chaps!

 and 12 more bowmen!!

And…….I ummed and erdd about these chaps, once again they’re Redoubt figures, which I was 
looking at not 5 minutes before I bought these painted chaps. There were more but these 12 ECW musketeers and 1 leader will be the start of my American/Settler types!
Hoorah!

Salute 2017 – The Pics (A Looong Post!)

Posted on April 23rd, 2017 under , . Posted by

Its Sunday night and my feet still hurt!
Yep I’ve got to admit it, it was bloody knackering walking around Salute all day!
Postie, Dave and myself left early, unlike last year I actually remembered the tickets this time!
So upon arrival to the Excel centre, me and Postie abandoned Dave to the Salute queue and if you’ve ever been to Salute you’ll know the pain of the Salute queue!
Yes, that does mean we had a press pass once again. yee haw! So we got in nice and early around 8.30ish. After an hour of wandering around I called BigLee to see where he was. He wasn’t best pleased when I told him we were already spending our hard earned dosh and had been for an hour or so. He called me a few names, none of which I can repeat here, but he did include a photo
see below!
