Failing to resist temptationPosted: March 16, 2015
Besides having just enough time to take a quick look around and to talk to a few wargamers that I know (including Lee Hadley, Postie, and Alan Abbey), I did manage to find and buy a few things. One trader was selling individual Del Prado pre-painted 25/28mm-scale Napoleonic figures for just 50p each(!) … so I bought enough to complete a couple more units of Prussian infantry and to add another unit of infantry to each of the as yet unvarnished and based French and British armies. (I know that I wasn’t going to buy any more figures, but these were just too good a bargain to turn down!)
I also bought both volumes of the Funcken books about the Napoleonic Wars for less than I had seen them on sale for on the Internet.
All-in-all this was an excellent little show, and I am pleased that I was able to go, even though I failed to resist the temptation to buy more figures!
