Now earlier today I made the trip a couple of miles down the road to the Penkridge Tabletop Sale, which I have attended since it started except for one year when I was a tad under weather. It is a bit of a joke that I have yet to buy anything but a coffee and a bacon sandwich, today however I broke my duck! I purchased something, hurrah! I had a quick wander round before meeting with Dave and Jon, I spotted a painted field position for £3 ideal to add to my Great War terrain, after a coffee I went and got one. After Dave and Jon had left I had another trawl round which I am glad I did, under one of the tables was a box of unpainted figures for 50p each at that price you have to have a look don't you? Result, it was full of Renegade Late War Germans, so I have now added a rifle section, a MG team, some NCO's and officers to the Great War to do pile. I also ordered a MKIV tank for the Germans in the Warlord New Year 10% off and free postage offer, so my Big Push may take a while longer to bear fruit.
Off to GHQ tomorrow for the first game of 2016, a French Revolutionary War bash with Black Powder, look out for a report on Dave's BLOG later in the week.
