I woke up a bit earlier this morning than I'd planned, which meant I had time to make myself a bacon butty before heading out to SELWG. I even left earlier than planned so the bus from Brixton to Crystal Palace was quicker than on previous occasions as there was less traffic. I actually arrived so early that I had time to go in and buy a coffee and still be about 20th in the queue.
Early on it didn't seem as busy as normal, but it picked up later on in the morning. I met various people during the day:
CLWC - Ian G, Jerry J, Andy F, Martin B, John R, Stan S, Clive McC, Mike R, Dave S, Dave F
Bloggers/Social Media - Clint, Ray (and Evil Postie), Mick Sayce, Brad Harmer-Barnes
I started off with a photo-taking circuit of the games before browsing the traders to decide on purchases. I did have a small list of "must buys" and a contingency for buying other stuff. Luckily the contingency was large enough for all my "Oooh, I could do with those" purchases.
Now for the obligatory loot pics:
The Things What I Bought!
Early War Miniatures
Some mud tracks (and a ford section), mainly for New Guinea. I'll have to try to remember how I painted the river sections I bought a couple of years ago.
Blotz and Products For Wargamers
Some MDF buildings. These will be SFed up for Strontium Dog.
Some bases (I wish they sold single sprues as that was all I needed) and a late war Waffen SS squad (for the "Schicklgruber grab story line in Strontium Dog).
Colonel Bill's, PFW and Magister Militum
25mm hex bases, 50mm round bases (patrol markers for Chain of Command) and a dice bag.
Colonel Bill's, Foundry and Conquest Games
Wolves! A veritable pack of them. And Cerberus!
Plastic Soldier Company and Grubby Tanks
Ruskies! I've decided to do a 15mm Soviet platoon and reinforcements for Chain of Command.
More German tanks! Because why not?
Tomorrow I'll be doing a post with pics from all of the games.
