It's Salute eve and while I am excited to be going, this year, because of my ongoing lead reduction strategy, I am not planning to buy very much at all as I DON'T NEED IT!
That said I may have a look out for the following which I am listing just to remind me when I am there as I can look at this post on my phone (how horribly technological of me!).
Lucid Eye Miniatures (Arcane Scenery) Will there be any left? There weren't last year!
Footsore Miniatures Franco Prussian War figures (no idea where these will be! No information on the website! Warlord might have some but maybe only Dark Ages)
Artizan North West Frontier (no idea)
Empress Miniatures Indian Mutiny (probably all sold out!) Are they really as small as rumoured?
Now I'm not saying I will buy any of these but I just want to have a look. Actually, I only bought seven figures last year but then I spent £200 on books and scenery (none of which I have either read or built).
I wanted to have a look at the new Frostgrave rules (TC7 and TD 5) but so far I haven't been overwhelmed by the figures (TL13), despite them being sculpted by some of my favourite sculptors. Partly it's because some of them are rather lacking in animation and partly it's because I don't like the colour schemes on the painted examples I have seen so far (easily remedied but if Kevin Dallimore can't make them look appealing who can?) It's odd because when I first saw the IHMN and North Star pirates figures I wanted them all. Perhaps I should be able to resist after all!
I will go to the bloggers meet up at 13.00 and hope I know someone! It's quite intimidating for an outsider like me!
I need to remember my glasses (or I can't read the floor plan) and to wear trainers (or my knees will give out). I have lots of space on my camera and it is all charged up!
