My Day at Carronade 2017

Scotland's biggest and best wargames show drew me and a chum to Falkirk this morning. We arrived a wee bit early but we were allowed in and I made my way to my booked flea market table.



I didn't have much to sell and selling was incredibly slow but I did manage to move a couple of units of Caesarian Romans and an AWI unit.

I did not manage to sell my Roman Villa or a few units of WSS infantry and a gun although everyone said they were beautifully done. There's always the next show.

After a quick refuel of chips and a burger I mosied around a bit talking to quite a few chums before splashing some cash on the traders.

I got some brushes for £4.40.


I'll find out how they work next week.


Hope they keep their points.

I am hoping to build up my Teutonic Order collection to use with To The Strongest so I bought some more Teutonic Order Knights.


Some Hungarian Knights


And some Serbian Knights


And some Turkish Sipahis which I hope to convert into Turcopoles.


Next up were some British infantry for my FIW collection from that nice man at Crann Tara. The nice man didn't have all the figures I was after but he offered to post them on, free of charge, as soon as possible. What a nice man. Can everyone go and say 'hello' to the nice man, he's called Graham.

Meanwhile, back at Pendraken I snapped up an army pack of Achaemenid Persians to act as opponents to my other armies.


Some 40x20x2's from Warbases.


And, Finally, a Roman Stone Granary by Warbases which won't be very Roman by the time I am finished with it.


Keep an eye on this blog as I will post further developments.

Finally, finally, a big thanks to the Falkirk guys who run a smooth operation for the best of the Scottish shows.
