Me & Postie drove down to Tonbridge last Sunday for the Rejects first show of the year.
There we met fellow Rejects BigLee and Ian.I an then treated us all to a MackieD’s breakie, which set us all up for the day!

Hailsham Wargames Club – Malplaquet 1709

My personal favourite game of the show. I belive they were all old school Les Higgins figures, well they may have been old but they still looked pretty cool!

We met up with loads of blogger, as soon as we walked into the main hall we bumped into 
Dave Crook,centre in the pic above,with Postie and BigLee.

Then not long after we were joined by Henry Hyde and Bob Cordery.
I was pleasantry surprised to be given £5 from Henry as payment for one of my photos he 
had used in Miniature Wargames!
(Pic pinched from BigLee’s blog!)
