Well one of the biggest highlights of my Wargame year went on over the weekend at Foundry Newark again, Bring out your lead 2017. What can I say amazing day on Saturday, the standard of the tables miniatures and company gets better and thats hard to beat year to year. Diane , Marcus Maria and Bryan made the event what it is the many gamers collectors and just people who come to see I would believe were blessed with what was there. the Oldhammer guys all who i know and who's company is of excellence put on a display of table miniatures ideas that as a long time wargamer would say is of the highest quality in the world !
Garth ran the whole day aided by many the painting competition was as always attended high with quality miniatures of love and care. The tent held 2 huge games with terrain and miniatures exceeding any before other room held games and tables with many enjoying the times. I was honoured to have the company of Dave Wood collector and good friend who I pestered to attend the even for years, my best mate Alec had to have an emergency operation and was unable to attend so as all he was missed and good wishes from all i have passed on to him. Big tony was there to talk and give his words of wisdom , the Goblim master Kevin Adams again created faces and things for anyone who asked. Below are some pictures they do not give justice but i hope show a little of what was to view. Harry and Curtis are to be commended on the tables. and those who won the painting competition well the minis speak for themselves
