This year there were a wheen players up on stage with Magic the Gathering. From what I saw, they were so immersed in their own games, the rest of the hall could have been a wheatfield for all the interest it had. But well done to Highlander Games for organising it.
The Bring & Buy seemed a bit anemic unless you wanted 15mm unpainted ancients, although I did manage to direct Steve to some bargain supports for his US forces in 28mm. One bloke had decided to dispose of his 28mm Warlord Plastics other than his Germans and Russians, so there were some good bargains. Sadly for me, pretty much all stuff I already had.
The tables were a very mixed bunch..
|A good selection|
|'SPIT' (Stupid Projects in Twenty Eight Mill)|
|Battle of the Nile|
|Battle of Hopton|
|Moonbase Sturm Acht (or something)|
|Dead Man's Hand|
Kirriemuir Wargames Club put on a fun participation game, grab the loot, don't get shot.. I think it needs more dust and tumbleweeds.
I was fortunate enough to have a winning raffle ticket that got me the paints on the left, otherwise Martin and Co at Warbases seem to have done best - an old barn, a Russian house, and some haystacks. I picked up a couple of US engineers at the B&B, and otherwise a laser toy and some tufts.
All in all, a good day, so now it's Targe to look forward to .
