Held at the York Racecourse, and a good day was had, though after finishing work at 6am, I didn't get there till around 1pm. Just as well that I wasn't involved in putting on a game this time! There was a lot of good looking games on, plenty of traders, and I met up with a few people I hadn't seen for a while. Richie and Tim from Hunmanby put on a smallish but easy to set up Napoleonic Naval game which had a fair few onlookers at times. Good to see that younger gamers can organise, book, and put on a game themselves without any fuss and bother. Bodes well for the future I reckon.
As I wasn't gaming, it was a buying time, and I got some smashing 25mm wagons and carts from Old Glory's new Blue Moon range (http://www.oldgloryuk.com/disp_items.php?m=41&s=171) to be used with my 'Village Wars' project which is slowly coming together. You may say 'Not cheap' at £20 a time, but they are very good looking and chunky, and well worth the money I say. Nice to have a witter with Andy too, as always full of ideas and possibilities. Next trader was Hovels, and some really nice looking 18thC civilians-drunkards, farmers, busty wenches and farm animals too, for some interesting viginettes. On to Simon and Sue the TSS crew, and a serious buy into their 2ft boards and hills. I'd say that the flocking has improved since they took over at TSS, and they've added a lot to the range. As always, a good witter and laugh was had. Must remember to phone them soon, as I just need some more stuff! Oh, and Minipeeler got a bargain on the BB-15 boxes of Airfix Romans for a mere £10. He was thoroughly chuffed.
So as always, a good show, and well done York Club.
