Good to see everyone this weekend, Mad Lemmey, Steve J, Tiny Terrain, Albie Bach, Eldamarelf, Sean67, and many others.  We also spoke with O Dinas Powys (and his daughter!), and I found him outside on the Sunday afternoon getting some lessons in swordplay! 

We had a good weekend overall, bit quieter than 2012 for Pendraken, bit busier for Minibits, which annoyed Dave no end...!   Cheesy

Shame to hear about more thefts though this year.  Last year we lost 75 worth of Vallejo stuff, this year it was 200 worth of Warlord boxsets from Dave Thomas, and several KR cases from Lesley's Bits Box. 

Aside from that it was a really nice weekend, until the van battery died on the van!  Cue a quick phone call to the AA, and a battery boost from the man in the van, and we were up and away again!

When will people learn that eventually the thefts will make you guys stop coming to shows and only sell on the net  Cry

The strangest to me is that somehow these thieving b******s still think they're involved in a hobby somehow... Undecided
It's a whole lot different from what I would call a hobby though.... sad!

More details to follow on my Blog, but the highlight was meeting Bruce Weigle and seeing his wonderful table. Bought a couple of his books, 1859 and 1866, which from a quick glance last night are packed full of wonderful information.

Has anyone got any photos of Bruce's table?

I'm ashamed to say that I forgot to take pics of the table, but it was his Rossbrun one if that helps? Ditto other tables at the show Sad. It did look fantastic though.

I walked that field with him a few years ago when he was preparing the scenarios for his books, so I'd really like to see it!

Thanks for that, Leon. Looks like there were some outstanding games at the show. Slightly disappointed with Bruce Weigle's game terrain - neat, but not spectacular.  Undecided

Not just Customs, I worked on Heathrow for a few months. I saw how those b****rs treated fragile goods.  Angry Angry Angry
