As I mentioned in my previous blog, I had saved some spending money for salute. Without further delay, here is my swag from the day.
Couple of Osprey books, hopefully going to provide some guidance and inspriation for my current early war focus:
Bit of a spontaneous purchase, some of the new Late Romans from Gripping Beast. Looks like Late Romans will be my second Hail Ceaser army, not that I have started the first yet:
Halftrack mortar carrier for my Bolt Action Germans. I’ll be honest, I bougth this more for the model than anything else.
Footsore Miniatures Late Romans. I bought these just to paint as they look like lovely models, but I guess they’ll go with the Gripping Beast stuff:
I’ve been eyeing up Baccus stuff for years and finally took the plunge. 6mm has a special place in my heart, and here we have 288 British Napoleonic Infantry and around 150 WW2 Germans. All very small and hopefully very quick to paint.
A 20mm trench system from Ironclad Minatures. Another spontaneous purchse, but lovely terrain and all three feet of very detailed trenchline in solid resin for less than £30. Bargain.
An armoured car for my 20mm Poles from First to Fight:
Another cheap, random purchase, some 15mm goblins. Bought because I though they looked cool and no other reason.
A purchse from the excellent Empress Miniatures. Some more Taliban and Insurgents for modern gaming.
Trees! A little purchase from S&A Scenics to jazz up the gaming table. Hopefully the start of some terrain for the table.
A far haul over all and will keep me busy for a while. My unpainted mini count has taken a massive hammering, with this pushing me up to +588 unpainted mini’s. I best get busy!
