Today I went to this show, spent lots of cash, and had a good time!
I have don a photo journal so you can enjoy it too! Its on this link


Hope you like it…despite the poor picture quality due to the lighting!

Nice pics, was a bit disappointed Leven Miniatures never made it there for some reason. No one selling micro armour and very few selling 15mm. Still worth supporting it. Didn't realise you were a mate of Jim from Westerhope. See you at Carronade maybe at Stockton.

We had an email from Leven saying he was ill and couldn't attend unfortunately. Back next year!!

Thanks for the excellent report Herky.

I got there a wee bit late after me and my chums got stuck in an horrendous traffic jam at the last roundabout in Gateshead coming south. I heard later that there had been a suicide attempt at the Tyne bridge.

I spoke to a few guys here and there but only saw two other scots lads so it was a wee bit quiet overall.

I got a few pre-paid Napoleonics from Pendraken and a few more while I was there, some tufts from Warbases, a handful of Caesarian Romans for command bases from Warlord, a bag of gravel from Northumbria Painting Services, some 'merican cornfields from Last Valley and a book on Napoleonic tactics from one of the book sellers.

My chums got a few Bloodbowl teams from the flea market and some boxed boardgames.

All in all a nice day out. Will go again next year.

My bad, I Couldn't remember the name of the Westerhope chap, I will be at Stockton later in the year – at Battleground.

I completely missed you JimDuncan! I got there at 10:30 and was gone by 12:15!
Sorry you had such difficulty getting down!

My mistake, I meant Battleground. I didn't see you either Jim Duncan, arrived at 10.00 and left at 1.30 ish
I didn't spend a lot. Some Team Yankee buildings, some Minibits palm trees and dice. Bought some excellent modern German decals from Tumbling Dice (made by Doms Decals) Intended for 1/300 aircraft, but ideal for modern German 6mm micro armour and aircraft. Plus one or two bits and bobs from the table sale.

@Jarrovian and @Herky

I will be at the next couple of shows up north, Kirriemuir and Forfar and then Battleground in November. Might see you both then.
