Saturday saw myself and Kev up early and heading off to Newark, we had a full run of goodies to drop off with various traders and wanted to get most of this completed before the show opened proper.
Kev took the new sculpts to Martin at warbases, where they were well received so hopefully coming soon there will be plenty of Victorian figures to add to the existing range and some rather fun characters to complement the vehicles in this range.
While Kev was doing that I took the chance to deliver the Man of War to Andy at Ainsty castings. I left a happy man as he was suitably impressed with the beasty and quickly made a space for it to sit on display for all to admire.
Then I had to traverse the entire Hall in order to catch up with Panzer Kaput to add a timely delivery of some spare outbuildings I had.
Next up it was chance to chase up John at Wargames emporium and obtain a heads up on the next phase of EMP games figures to be released, and confirm a few details of work in progress for them.
Then I had chance to catch up with Martin and Diane myself, and soon I was laden with some work which I shall enjoy in the frantic run up to Salute. I have a lot of bits to paint for that show now.
Then it was time to go shopping and have a good scout at the show, stupidly I forgot to take many more pictures as we went from stand to stand taking everything in. Visiting the well run table sales through out the day. I dont know how Kev does it but once again he beat me to an absolute bargain ( I really do have to stop getting distracted by pirates).
Before we knew it the day was almost over, which is proof positive of a well run show and a good one. There were plenty of games and they are all participation which really gets you involved in the hobby a little more if you choose to join in. There was everything from Fantasy to historical and more on offer. So many we only had time for a few visits. My only gripe about the whole show is it does need a couple more traders. I like to visit Magister Militum because they carry a wide and diverse range of goodies for gamers of all persuasions. A couple more historical Traders as well would be good to add. But I am being nit picky as I still enjoyed the day.
The only thing left for us to do was to pay up and collect a rather large order of terrain for the cabin before heading home for a well earned rest. The terrain will be featured in another post very soon.
