Had a good time at the birthday bash, thanks for all at Pendraken for staging the event. Some good looking games worthy of a major national show across a variety of periods. And some nice discounts on the day  Smiley

There were two firsts at the show, although they wouldn't take pictures. Having set up our game by 8.30 and then had breakfast, I was the first to buy anything from Pendraken at the show. Event he till was still switched off. Even bigger first was that the dedicated 6mm and 20mm man, ie me, MADE HIS FIRST PURCHASE OF 10MM!

So now I've started a new scale, and new period (a French interventionist force to join Pete's 10mm SCW massive collection), Pandraken can assume the responsibility for one of the great turning moments in wargames history  Shocked

Leon & Co have ways and means to bleed you dry, sultanbev. Better sell your house before the court orders you to.  Cool

Cheers,

house long sold Aart, only renting now, which is much cheaper overall  Cool

Luckily my 10mm intentions are fairly modest, amount to 2 battalions of 1938 French and a couple of companies of armour. Although no doubt I'll end up with some 1982 Argy's now that our main 10mm man Pete Rushton has started on the Brits.... Am even selling some 6mm, see

Mmm, if Pendraken ever do WW2 Slovaks, then I'll probably end up with a 1938 Czech army....

Nik, you missed a good do, shame you couldn't make it in the end. Anyhows, I thought you'd dropped to 2mm/3mm as your godless scale?

I know - would have been great to have been there  Sad

And my 2mm/3mm dalliances are just that...they'll never divert me from 10mm  Love struck Evil

I suppose it happening on Bastille day has a certain symmetry about it
