Skirmish Swag/loot.

Yes I did put my hand in my pocket a little today. Not so much as to regret it or so much that it will not get painted. So here is what I bought and from who.

So what did I get?
  1. On the left, we have a 6x4' (Gridded) grass printed terrain Matt. While I only wanted a 4x4' Matt I was sold on the larger size when the trader offered it to me at the same price as the smaller mat. Bought from http://www.tinywargames.co.uk/ . So I am quite happy with the result.
  2. Top Right Some 15mm Vikings. Purchased from Colonel Bill at http://shop.colonelbills-store.co.uk/epages/4f27da57-42ee-48c0-9cb8-22c9dd921a68.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/4f27da57-42ee-48c0-9cb8-22c9dd921a68/Categories/154 . Actually not purchased at all but a straight swap for some Foundry unpainted 28mm figure I was never going to get around to. And this should give me about enough Vikings for a game of "Longship!" (By Peter Pig) Not enough you 2 forces nut enough to put a BIG Dent in one! I like to think of it as recycling!
  3. 2 15mm Miscast "Forged in Battle" resin tanks in 15mm size. A Hetzer and a Char 1 B. Purchased from http://www.andysmodels.co.uk/ . While these are officially "Miscast" With a lick of paint you will hardly know at all. The Hetzer will give my Germans a few extra options as a late war Tank destroyer. While the Char 1 B was used in WW2 by the French (and interwar period as well) and also in WW2 by the Germans.
Not sure yet what I will paint the Char up to represent but for £2.50 I know I will find a use. See below for historical note on the German use of this vehicle.

A number of Char B1's (161) were captured by the Germans during the Fall of France. These were later pressed into service as second line and training vehicles under the name of Panzerkampfwagen B-2 740 (f). Sixty became platforms for flamethrowers as Flammwagen auf Panzerkampfwagen B-2 (f). Sixteen were converted into 105 mm self-propelled artillery, armed with the 10.5 cm leFH 18 light howitzer.

Thanks for looking today and I will do a show report tomorrow.

And I even got Stu from Colonel Bill to take some fantasy figure to Roy. So not too many and I hope you can use them mate. (A Mix of Table top games and Asgard figures)

Cheers Clint

  1. Thanks Clint. I'm sure I'll find use for them in our games of Dragon Rampant.

    You spent more money today than I did at yesterday's Teesside show. I spent absolutely nothing - First time that's ever happened. I don't know if it was down to me being sensible, or the show not being of interest to me??

    1. Thanks Roy, The figures will need a repaint before use but having seen your work I know you will do them better than they are at the moment as they were painted about 30 years ago.

      I can justify my spends quite well as I do have a use for it all. And I will not be going to Salute.

    1. Thanks Ray. One of the reasons for me to get the matt was that as I do not drive it is FAR easier to transport than ridged boards.

  8. Nice tidy haul, Clint! I myself just got back from Adepticon here in the states. I spent too much and had way too much fun as well. Good thing I'm on vacation now so that I can recover by sleeping in! ;)
