I had been considering going to Other Partizan today. However, I didn't sleep well last night which in combination with the trains (likely to be crowded as Euston station is shut this weekend) and there not being many traders there that I was interested in tipped the balance in favour of me staying home.
Although I'm missing this show, I will (barring unforeseen circumstances) be wending my way down to Newbury in September for Colours.
Last weekend I decided to pull my finger out and order some extras for my Australians. I got the "red card of frustration" on Thursday and collected them from the Royal Mail delivery office yesterday:
Yes, armour support and some more Papuan Infantry Battalion troops. The M3 Stuart is a (re-badged Italerei) plastic kit; the Matlida II is a resin and metal kit with options to have it with 2lber gun, 3" howitzer (close support) or flamethrower ("Frog"). It doesn't look as though magnetising the barrels will be possible, so I'll need to decide which version to go with. Or maybe see if I can get spare resin turrets from Warlord to fit the other weapons to.
I'll be prepping the figures and Matilda over the next couple of days (I'm on leave until Thursday) and might start assembling the Stuart (I need to decide whether it will be an M3 or M3A1).
