CTK (Crush The Kaiser) Wargaming will also be providing a demonstration game using their WW1 rule set.

I only have a very small shopping list. Very small indeed. The only things I will be looking for this year are for old projects that just need rounding out.
  • 20mm Vietnam figures and vehicles.
  • 6mm Cold war era. (Only M113s and Marder 1a2s and some soviet stuff as well.)
  • maybe some 28mm stuff as well either for Donnybrook or for Zombies
And that's all I am looking for. But I will have enough spare money such that if I see anything that I NEED I will be able to get it. Naturally a lot depends on what the Flea market traders may or may not have.

So if you are coming to the show feel free to stop and chat. The rules are very simple so if you want to sit in for a little while I am sure we can make room for you.

All the best and probably a show report on Monday.
All the best Take Care Clint

 Sorry I just did not get my act together. No excuses.


  1. Enjoy and have fun. I wish I lived nearer so I could pop by!

    1. Cheers Brummie. Yeah that would be good. But far to long a drive for a local show.

  2. Hope it all goes well Clint, looking forward to reading the report on your return.

    1. Cheers Michael I'll try to get some photos. Maybe even get some of Ray and Fran!

  3. No bloody fudge, , what's the hell!!!!!!

    1. I know I have let the side down! But as I am told another Reject eats it all anyway all you are missing is the opportunity to blame that other Reject. Thank you Ray.

  4. Oh the poor posties, lol, no fudge. Have a great day Clint and all the best for the day

    1. Not just the Rejects. Several traders and a couple of other bloggers as well. Still I can't have them getting addicted!

      Thanks PK

  5. I will attempt to Loki. I shall start packing my bags today. Not expecting a big swag haul though. Cheers Mate.

  6. Surely having no fudge jeapardizes your membership of Postie's Rejetcs ?
    Have a good time at the event and I for one am betting that you'll end up with a few impulse buys !

    1. Oh you know me so well. I may do a swag post! I think there are many more things that would reject me from the Rejects. Thanks Joe.

  7. I'll see you tomorrow Clint. Shame about the fudge, although I suspect I wasn't going to get any after my cheeky comments the other day.

    1. You might have to had wrestle a Reject for any fudge. So a lucky escape this time. I shall try to get some done for SELWG! Cheers Mate.

  8. Hope all goes smoothly for you tomorrow and that you have a grand time. Take what pics you can as I know running game can keep you busy.

    1. Yes I will thanks Anne. Oh and I think I may have found a figure on sale there you might like. Is it a "Beltfed miniature" by Col Bills? or a Magpie Miniature from Brigade? Not sure yet I will see what they look like in the "flesh". Take Care Anne, all the best!

  9. Hope you have a great show Clint. Im finishing nights tomorrow and unfortunately Broadside is just a tadge too far to get to this year.

    1. Broadside is a good little show, but I think too far to make it worth your while.

      All the best Carl.
