I went to The Other Partizan today with Matt and Phil. It was very busy and a tad on the close side of warm, but folk seemed to be having a great time. There really is no better event for seeing, and joining in with, inspirational wargames. I took just a few pictures to try to convey what was provided for our pleasure. First up, a Sudan War game by my chums Kevin and Peter of the Iron Brigade, all the way down from Aberdeenshire ~
My modest purchases included some fencing pre-ordered from The Last Valley, some Perry Miniatures figures to be repurposed for the War of 1812, some brushes and a new pallette, a few MDF bases from Warbases, and finally, some 15mm vehicles for next year's on/off project, just in case.
Another splendid aspect of the shows is the opportunity they provide to meet friends and put the hobby and the world to rights. I enjoyed long chats with many friends: Duncan, Kevin, Peter, Colin, Robbie,Dave and Aly. I must make a special mention of Aly who quite unexpectedly game me a large box of figures. Getting home I opened them to find a fully painted and bases Austrian Infantry unit of Eureka figures for the FRW & s similar French unit undercoated and with some base colours already done. What a gift out of the blue! I'm lost for words really.
