We'll be there, with what now looks like a worryingly large stand, given how little we can fit into the car...

The show model looks like some kind of monstrous Robin Hood.

There were two figures:

Plus a Warlord sprue of plastic Romans. Rather a good haul for £5 entry :D

It was useful to see a few traders not that common at shows - Bicorne satisfied my sudden enthusiasm for 'Pikemen's Lament' and Citadel Six very kindly supplied some under-the-table brass flag sheets - and put a face to Ramshackle and have a chat with a few regulars. For a first time show it was ok, needs more games and the heating turned up a notch though.

Heating system was fucked. It broke the night before. Nowt they could do about it but it wasn't ideal (only just warming up now)

It was 'all right' for a first effort but there are lessons they need to learn if it's to go forward.

Sorry, Dave, didn't get the freebies
