Hi Leon,

I can't wait to get there  :D

Are you coming with packs only, or will it be possible to buy individual codes?
 I forgot to order before tthe 25th...

We'll only have the army packs with us, along with a selection of WWI/WWII vehicles in multi-packs.  We're packing the van on Wednesday night, so if you only need a few items then we might be able to get them cast and into the van in time?

We can always take orders at the show as well, and send them out free-post for you.

Leon, will you be bringing the paint racks with you ? Because i'm running out of dark earth stone texture, and you can't send them by post anymore! If you want to bring one for me i'd appreciate it!

You know this one:

Yep, we'll have all of the paint with us, so if you pop by the stand we can sort that out for you.

Realy nice!

Could you bring some french SYW infantry? ACW confederate artillery, and the 1870 range?

If it is possible for you, it would be just perfect!

Thank you,

Michel.

Excellent, we'll have a chat when we see him.

We will have all of the army packs, but we won't have the individual packs unfortunately.  We will be able to show you all of these items inside the armies though, no problem.

Hope you have a great time. Living now in Sunny Suffolk this will be my first non attendance for about eight years - getting withdrawal symptoms already!

Hmmm, in the future I think I will try and attend this show, if I can persuade a few chums to attend as well that is.

Busier show this year attendance wise, over 1500 people through the door, but our worst sales in the 5 years we've been going.  It's such a long drive (circa 20 hours in the van), nearly 3 tanks of petrol and total costs close to 1000, that you need a good day's sales to make it worthwhile.  On the other hand, it's nice to go to the continent and meet up with people we wouldn't see at the UK shows, and we get to spend some time socialising as well.

Yeah was a busy show! Didn't see 3/4 of it as i had to waltz through it (the boy had to play a football game at 2), but it was nice!

Shame you had a bad sale! I really wonder what people come for at the show sometimes, I saw house sets for 350 a piece !!, while i bought a complete trench set from ironclad for 27, yet the ironclad stand was eerily calm (i was the only one there at that time), while the houses generated a lot of interest.


Looking around it fazed me yet again that people are willing to spend soooo much on 28mm, and some of the prices were absolutely crazy.

We can only hope they see the light and scale down next year  ;)

Shame you had a poor show. I've seen other comments about the price of some buildings on sale as well, but if people are prepared to pay these prices...  :o. As a show, I'd love to attend, but I think the cost would be too prohibitive :(.

So sorry I couldn't make it this year... then again; I don't think my wallet alone could have made up for the loss... :-\
Hope to be able to attend next year!

Cheers,
Rob
