Purchases at Targe

I paid a visit today at the Targe wargames show in Kirriemuir.

Targe is a lovely small show, a 90 minute drive north of Edinburgh. I was there mainly to sell more of my recently deceased (actually a year now) friends wargaming collection to further raise a charitable donation to Combat Stress in his name.

I also made a substantial early payment to Combat Stress to the tune of £4000 which was gratefully received on their behalf by Charles Stewart Grant. Charles is another wargamer, you may have heard of him. I have some way to go with the remainder of the collection.

My bonus points consisted of a few purchases.

Another single arch bridge by Warbases.

So nice I got a two arch bridge.

And went the whole hog and got a three arch bridge as well.

While I was at it I got a Hay Cart complete with hay load and carthorse.

Keep following this blog for their construction.

I also got a spray can of matt varnish from Erik at Figures in Comfort. He tells me it is good. I don't believe him so I'll just have to test it out.

I also snapped up a mint copy of this book for a fiver from Graham Robertson Books.

And finally could the chap who left these figures contact me and I'll make arrangements to return them.

Progress is being made with the Ruined Ruined Church and a freebie sprue of 28mm Napoleonics.

Watch this space.
