There And Back Again

An unexpected journey, when Dave jokingly said "the football match is cancelled fancy taking me to Colours" I thought you know what, given the current uncertainty in things at the moment why not. It would also give our good wives the chance to catch up and take in some retail therapy too.
As Dave mentioned on his blog, Colours is more of a shoppers show, so we could partake of some retail therapy too.
So what did I buy?
First up a raeda for Emperor Baldinus from Warbases.
Inspired by the Adrianople game I bought these geese also from Warbases, pictured here with a Wargames Foundry late Roman civilian figure herding them along.
Great Escape Games had their buy five get sixth free offer of Gamers Grass still going so I stocked up on more.
Lastly I restocked on these 28mm picket posts from Tablescape.
Dave kindly presented me with this superb garden from The Last Valley as a thank you for helping with the Cold War Gone Hot project.
 On the way to picking up Dave and Sue I collected these Anyscale Models British OYD (3 of these), wrecked OYD and MWD truck from the sorting office for the 20mm 1940 project.
No game this week as we are away for a couple of days.

  2. I have left a scathing review on Google about The Acorn, I did say the fish and chips were OK though🙂 Needless to say we will avoid Greene King establishments in future.

    1. It was all the better for been an unexpected one, the trucks are neat little pieces with no individual bolts to glue on🙂

  4. A good surprise day out, all the sweeter for not being planned. I like the Gamers Grass products, they are the best quality ‘short’ tufted grasses that I have come across.

    1. Back to a little normality but I do still wonder if the show scene will recover fully.

  7. Splendid little haul. Had I known you were going then I’d have said pop by Charlie Foxtrot Models as I was helping Colin!
    Cheers

    1. Cheers Matt, I usually swing by Colin's stand if only for a quick chat. So busy when we arrived though and I didn't go back to that end if the hall later.
