Haul from Hammerhead 2020
« on: March 15, 2020, 09:59:03 AM »
I was asked to put up a pic of my loot from the show yesterday. Sorry the photo is not great.
Haven't counted but about @400  minis,  mostly from the Bring and Buy or Colonel Bill.
Of course I was able to reassure my wife that the whole lot came to less than 20  lol



4 useful Ospreys and a painting guide


I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

2019 Painting Challenge :
figures bought: 500+
figures painted: 57
9 vehicles painted
4 terrain pieces scratchbuilt

As you know my haul was much much less. About 20 figures & a few bits.
With what went at the trade at table, net overall a REDUCTION in the
Lead Mountain, MDF Hill, etc.

Stocked up on paints, varnish and tufts on the assumption of the impending End of the World (or at least no shows for the forseeable).

As in 20 pounds of silver? ::)

Well, time to stock up. There may be a distinct lack of shows in near future. :-I
