My first stop once inside was to pay my obeisance to The Evil Mr Tuffley. After a brief chat about the rapidly expanding new and resculpted lines I handed over the grand sum of £6 for a pack each of the new ESU and NSL Jaeger SAW troopers, before he managed to persuade me to diversify into the Moongrunt range as well!
Hobby news - TEMT hopes to have all the support weapon packs for the ESU, NSL Jaeger, Islamic Federation and OutRim Coalition ranges ready in time for Warfare in November.
After I made my escape from temptation, I made my way to the games on the balcony area intending to make a start on my usual round of taking pics of all the games. At this point I discovered that I'd forgotten my camera. Oh well, I just began a tour of all the games before shopping,
I did meet up and chat with various people while I was there: Postie, Ray, Clint, Ian and Big Lee from the Rejects; Peter W, Clive, Ian G, Ian N, Martin B, Andy, Sean, Bart and Jerry from the Central London club (I did see a couple of others at various times but didn't get to chat); plus a couple of bloggers - Simon (Big Red Bat) and Dave Showell (If In Doubt, Charge!). I'm sure I've forgotten a few people, but that's my memory for you.
The GZG figures were the only ones I purchased at the show; the rest of my spending was on terrain and small bits. After a few tours around the traders and games I finally popped along to Essex Miniatures to collect a small package of figures which I had purchased during the week for collection at the show.
Anyway, I guess it's time for pics of the lootz:
|My Essex package|
|Cacti and corn stalks for Mexicagrave|
|Some loose weapons for Salutesville|
|Airbrush hexocam stencils|
|Primer, paints, mini-dice and the GZG figures|
|Road and river sections|
I decided to open up the road and river section packs to see what you get:
Edit to add: The figures in these pics are on a 40mm square base
|Latex river/stream sections from Early War Miniatures|
|Felt-backed road sections from S&A Scenics|
