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!
