Title: Lincombe Barn Table Top Sale
Post by: Steve J on 16 May 2019, 02:50:12 PM
Not a show per se, but a great local bring'n'buy that is normally very popular. I'll be there trying to offload surplus terrain, books ,figures etc that I simply no longer use, have space for etc. Hope to see some of you there. Details can be found below:

I know Paul, but some of the terrain I made when I gamed in 28mm and 15mm, so doesn't really work with my 10mm stuff. Books have been read and were for planned projects that will never see the light of day, given the recent rationalisation of my gaming. Ditto the figures, some 28mm, some 10mm. So time for them to go to a good home (hopefully) and to free up space in the house. It's also quite cathartic :).

I know the feeling. I will be carting my 28mm ECW stuff to Phalanx as it will never be painted up and used.

My clear out is going well, but I'm amazed at how much stuff I've amassed, ready to try and shift on Sunday and that's just the books! I blame Amazon and ebay for making it too easy to buy something ;). Bring back SAE envelopes, postal orders, printed catalogues and 28 days for delivery :D.

So, anyone from the forum planning on attending this Sunday?

Too far for me but my brother might go from Clevedon.

... 28 days for delivery :D.

Luxury ;D

Still takes longer than that for figures to reach the Antipodes ;)

We forget how luck we are in the UK for cheap and quick postage compared to other parts of the World.

I'll be attending Steve ... not got enough time to pull anything together for sale (this year) unfortunately ... too many other projects (rules redrafting in particular) on the go ... so will see if I can track you down  :D

I'm on table 5C Mark, which is probably the Concord room. Hope to see you there. I've got all my stuff together, mainly books, terrain and some 28mm moderns, 15mm sci-fi and 10mm ancients stuff. Always hit or miss as to what sells on the day.

Good to meet up with Mark, albeit rather briefly. Would have been nice to have had more time for a chat, but it was not to be. Managed to flog a load of stuff, but always interesting to see what sold and what didn't. Mainly terrain and books were popular, with no real interest in painted minis. Some good comments re: Pendraken on the day and some people were only after 10mm stuff, which was good to see.

Glad it worked out

Yes - great to meet up Steve - we should arrange a game or 2? I'm only in Clifton and play up at Slimbridge often (not as often as I'd like) on a Monday evening.

I managed to pick up a couple of reasonably painted 10mm North Western Europe British and German armies - a matched pair for 50 - very good value. It will need some touching up and I also base all my vehicles (to aid handling) so I'll have to set work to work ahead of the BKCIV Boot Camp event on Saturday 15th June (all welcome) but we already have a 6mm Eastern Front game that players can join and potentially a 15mm Western Desert 'bash' but it would be nice to have a 10mm game as well. I had thought about an Italian v Greeks (like your scenario solo game Steve) but I just wont get them done in time.
But I like the idea of a smaller 4 x 4 table and fewer units to allow drop-in players to get the feel of the rules.

Thank for the book Steve - a good start to my Spanish Civil War reading ahead of the planned SCW suppliment.

Cheers
Mark

Hi Mark,
glad the book is of use and an interesting period to play. I didn't realise you were in Clifton, so will be in touch to host a game, once we've got the family holiday out of the way.
Steve J.

Looking forward to it Steve .... your 'small wars' between the Greeks and Italians and in Spain have been an inspiration.

I have often felt daunted by the sheer scale of the Eastern Front or Normandy ... so have tended to go for smaller more manageable theaters myself - like Finland or Manchuria  ;D ;D ;D

When I first started playing I was all geared up to large battles on a 6' x 4' table, with 3 battalions per side (depending upon the scenario etc). Once I got some games in under my belt, I soon realised that actually small games with a Battalion plus support per side on a 4' x 4' table were more than enough for a fun game, which could be completed in an evening.
