No Luddite it was on a proper seat. A couple of years ago my Mrs and I went to London using our 2 together railcard and got tickets for 11 each, each way. A lady joined the train at York having bought a return ticket on the day and it was 165 I don't want to see I don't want to see

Having been there its a small price to pay for the scenery and the views.

It does feel like I am being paid to be on holiday :-)
That said the Far North district is one of the more economically depressed areas of NZ, unemployment 10% double that for maori, and much lower wages than NZ average.

Hullo,
Ticket bought, plane ticket bought, hotel sorted - now for the tricky bit, what to pre-order. Some beautiful LoA, spears, laser cut fences, craters...

I think one of each should be fine...!   Cheesy

Once again I will probably not make it there this year.
May it be highly profitable for the Pendraken crew!

I am sure there is a law about issuing a public warning before posting photos like that.


Good to put a face to a name though Aksu.  Who is the other bloke?   Smiley

Always love reading the various reports on these shows and many thanks go to those who take the time to post many photos of games and the day in general.

I see that there was a game of Inverlochy put on by one of the 28mm manufacturers:

Love the looks on the faces of the Covenant player and the two bystanders - "your going to do what???" or "do you really want to do that?" Smiley

The blogger included a copy of BKC III in his purchases too I see.

Love to get there myself one year, but can't see that happening soon  Sad

@Asku: Thanks for the picture of you and Leon - my mental images are always different - I was within range for you but way off for Leon. I have pictured him more like the late Andy Rooney. I am thinking about a head swap.

@Pierre: I didn't make it either and likely won't until I can drive there. Thanks for the link to the Inverlochy picture!

I hope that was a very successful show for our forum hosts. This -selfishly - so you will continue to be around to produce Aztecs and other Meso-Americans, woodland Indians with bows and warclubs (yes you do have ONE figure), Spanish conquestidore types (yes - there are some proxies), LoA Scots regular foot in bonnets, some AFV even fsn has never seen before ..... etc, etc  Smiley

Hullo,
Enjoyed the show, got a good hoard of goodies including BKC from Leon et al. Quite a good number of 18th century games were in evidence, which was nice. And I even had a gold ticket in my gift bag so got a free figure toting bacback for all the loot I got. So, good fun and don't tell the missus how much essential wargaming gear I bought.
And BTW in the photo the muppet in the left hand corner is me, the handsome young chap on the right is Leon.
Cheers,
Aksu
