Swag from Broadside.

Well today I was at the Broadside show. Having returned and watched the football and a quick doze I am now refreshed and thought I might do a very quick blog post detailing the huge amount of loot/swag I managed to haul home.

Ok it's not a large selection at all, very small indeed in fact. So small that I actually bought more money back from the show than I had when entering, as I had some figures for a friend.

I only bought 3 things I could have spent more, much more as it happens, but for some curious reason was not in the mood.

I only got:

1 pack of MDF bases from Col Bills
1 pot of pain in British uniform colour.
1 pack of 2mm static grass.

As you can see this really was a minimal spend. No impulse buys, no new projects and no unnessercary expenditure at all.

As I type this I am feeling rather tight fisted and miserly.

All the best and a show report tomorrow if I can.
Cheers Clint

  1. Nothing wrong with a minimal spend :)

    I had planned on coming down today, but I'll be away next weekend so needed to get things done at home. Still, it was a shame to miss seeing you guys.

    1. Thanks tams, Would have been nice to see you but can fully understand the need to do other things.

  2. Crikey, Col. Bills have had a full weekend. They were at Durham yesterday. That's a lot of mileage and time spent in a van.

    Depending upon my mood I'll quite happily not spend anything, even should it be the only opportunity I have to make the purchase in purchase. If I'm feeling really low then a tightfistedness can enter my habits, so much so that it can take over and I've got to spend to break the compulsion. All part of the condition I've got, I suppose.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoyed yourself and I look forward to seeing the show report, when you can.

    Net financial gain at a wargames show, there is something truly wrong about that idea.
    Cheers, PD

  5. Bah, you're just not trying :-) . We all have to consume more and more, else the wheels will fall off the world - everyone knows that!

    1. Thanks C6. I think you might be right, so I shall now order a few pieces and get them sent to me! Sometimes I need to do it this way to avoid unnessercary impulse buys!

  6. I truly admire your very limited purchases, you shall henceforth be known as "Clint Iron-Will".
    I blame the traders not enticing you enough.
