Hi

I went to battleground with my nine year old son and had a great time.

We played the the excellent border reivers wild bunch game.

Unfortunately I only spent 12 quid at the pendraken stand .

Been back from Battleground for a wee while now. A 2.5 hour drive each way so not as tiring as the trip to York from Edinburgh. We left early enough to get home over the border before darkness fell having left in darkness in the first place.

My first time at this show and will probably visit again next time around.

A neat little show, not so little actually but constrained by the scale of the premises so doesn't have much upgrade potential unless there's another hall stashed away somewhere. A good mix of traders which some shows don't quite manage so I managed to get my lead, some MDF and some paint which I didn't get at a show last week.

I met a TMP'er in the canteen, 'Hi Jarrovian', going by his TMP handle he didn't have far to travel. The canteen wasn't up to much, under-staffed I would have thought but fortunately, being on a bit of a diet, I managed not to get too excited by the offered menu.

I exchanged a few Scottish Tenners with Pete Berry for a great big bag of 6mm ACW (and some MDF) which will allow me into Longstreet but only after I explore some of the Polemos options. A couple of more tenners extracted a few more Shermans from Dave at Pendraken and a few bottles of paint, nothing in particular that I needed but the colours were 'pretty'. I also got a couple of bottles of 'soft tone' can't remember who from, which I am now, apparently, addicted to.

I had a few short blethers with Leon, longer chats with Martin at Warbases, Stu at Colonel Bills, Erik at Figures in Comfort, Dave Lanchester at Dave Lanchester and a few nameless others (well I can't remember everyone). I took no photographs on the day, didn't see many others doing so apart from a young lady with a tripod. Has anyone blogged any pics yet?

So the plan, back at the ranch, is to finish off a bundle of 28mm Napoleonics by the end of the year, finish the Warmaster/Warband options still in the painting/basing queue, add a few more Shermans and stuff to my Pendraken WW2 setup and then the Baccus ACW stuff. By that time it will be well into 2016 and all priorities will have no doubt changed by then.

Some nice looking games there. Off to our local show which is small, but is always a nice way to fill a few hours on a Sunday morning.
