I did not have any targets for purchases in particular and managed to resist lots of new shiny - I know you might think whats to point of going! However the main aim for the day was to meet up with various friends.
So just a small amount of loot. A hard copy of Simon Millers "To The Strongest" (Our very own Millsy has done a cracking job on the design work I must say) , a new Red paint set as my old one is about worn out, and another stock up of terrain extras , sandbags etc from Andy and Jon at Ainsty. Some rather nice Victorian heroes and adventurer types from Wargames Foundy to do a few specials for the Sudan. Having resisted too much new "off plan" shiny stuff I will order a few other things over the next week or two.
A good chat with Mark from Wargames Holiday Centre around a mid summer play test/ photo session for the Sudan , and confirm of the first game date being the of October.
The blogger meet up took place at 1pm and there was a decent number of us - in fact I must add some more to my blog roll to keep up! It was fun to share some face to face time with the guys n girls whose virtual space we share. Clint you chocolate fudge went down very well on the train home - thanks
What is the collective noun for a group of bloggers? A "gossip" perhaps...Ray was heard asking who has a blog prize giveaway next as he has not won one for a few weeks..
The standard of games overall looked wonderful , some real work had gone into them - really too many to photograph and do justice to I thought - so i gave up.
I met Mrs D back in London for a bite to eat , and we had a pleasant hour in the bar at the Rennaissance St Pancras hotel prior to getting our train home.
Altogether a grand day out
