Phew. Well done Leon and crew! A very enjoyable day. Made £50 from my hour on the bring n buy and promptly spent it. Some great games! I've missed this show and havent been since before the plague. Good to see everyone.

Us lot at Alex's DbN Eylau game. We all seem to look more like each other as the Aytons come and go.

Modest haul. Very pleased to pick up a 1/32 scale Forces of Valor Matilda tank on the B&B for the bargain price of a tenner. Expect a Desert War game coming to a future Ayton some day. Bit of paint, some old mags and some Gripping Beast Saxons to flesh out the Dark Age units.

Some great looking games including a 1/32 WWII game played with Rapid Fire Reloaded. A fantastic WWI game and a Glorious Revolution game in 10mm caught my eye. The Brompton Bankers (Bob, Stephen and Co.) put on a Pikemans Lament game with Border Reiver gangs. Nice inspiration for my 30YW Swedes I'm hoping to paint up next. (Pic below)

It was indeed an excellent day and good to see everyone and roll some dice to dig Peeler out of the hole he'd got the Russians in...

Not sure who the weirdy beardy guy is...

A big well done to Leon and Co.

A right smashing day was had, good Eylau DBN game with good company, apart from Andy who completely dropped the Russian into a deep hole, and an odd man with a beard. They weren't bad actually. Quite a lot of interest & nattering about the game & rules, which was nice. Overall, a very pleasant show, lots of games on, interesting trader stuff, I think 850 attendance. Apart from lots of tea, I found a few painted nuns & oddities, some village folk, and some dogs. Stopped of at Whitby for humble pie on the way home.

Nice little haul there, Mr W. I would be very interested in hearing more about the WW1 game if you managed to acquire any further details.

Tim - Thanks. It Looks like the same game that was at "T'Other Partizan" back at the start of t'October. I have a couple of contacts there and can investigate further.
