By an odd coincidence* I will be in Durham, spending a few days with my sister so will be ideally placed to come to Battleground this year.

Good range of traders and games, couple of pre-orders already in and I'm looking forward to a day every bit as good as my last visit!

I suspect I should be trying to offload some of my lead mountain on the Bring & Buy but I also suspect I may be a little late to get table space.

If I'm not busy selling things I don't want, to buy stuff I don't need, with money I don't have, so I can sell it again in a year or two at another Bring & Buy I'll try to get some pictures and post them up so people can see them now I have a Flikr account.

On a tangentially related topic, talking of traders, anyone know what's going on with Rapier Miniatures, beyond the "shut for renovation" message on the website?

*Believe that, you'll believe anything :)

We've still got a few slots available, all after midday though.

He's having some health troubles (hip and back) I believe so has had to cancel a few shows at the end of this year.  He's hoping to be back on the show circuit for 2020 but I don't have any info on his day-to-day running I'm afraid.
