I dripped up to Forfar today with a couple of chums in order to visit SKELP 2016 which is a quaint little wargames show in a quaint little Scottish town. I say dripped as it was rather wet.
Never-the-less we got there OK.
SKELP is a nice little show handily placed about 90 minutes north of Edinburgh.
I took no photographs on the day but a good friend did so and you can find his photographs here:
After talking to a couple of dozen people, scoffed a black pudding roll, sank a cup of tea and had a chat with another couple of dozen people I escaped home to pore over my goodies for the day.
Well at least that was the plan, I did have forty winks and another forty winks first.
After my tea I did have a look at the following:
Yet more tiles on a sheet from Warbases.
A collection of Warbases MDF buildings including an Eastern European House, Hay Barn and Barn.
A Village Well, Livestock Pen, Ladders and Trapdoors for my Magnetic Modular Fort. And, a couple of Corner Towers which I will be building 'Back-to-Front' (to follow).
I thought I would also give the British Army Vehicles a preview. Here they are, a Ferret, a Saracen, a Saladin and a Humber Pig.
Some paint from Pendraken (you can never have enough paint).
Some textured paint by Coat d'arms from Colonel Bills. (experimental basing)
A few figures from a rummage box.
Some little tents from a charity stand.
A couple of huts.
Some bigger tents.
And a collection of farm animals.
And just as I was running out of steam I opened up the bagged Ferret to see how many bits there were.
Busy day ahead tomorrow.
