My loot

First of all, I'll give you my long expected swag from Salute. Oh, Yeah, I've spent tons of cash, having to borrow heavily from my wife's account... She will kill me for sure... Not! Right, this was a poor attempt at Kazakh humour...

Really nice suit
To be honest, I had started a shopping list weeks ago, but after each passing, it grew thinner, simply because I've already everything I need. What, shocking! A wargamer always needs something! Well, given the space I have at home (already full) I couldn't get much. So I decided to be reasonnable. In the end, here is what I bought:

A few bases from Warbases, a blister from Foundry, and a very good deal from Simon: 42 28mm minis for 24£ ! Yay! And that's it. Less than 40 quids. Because I'm about to start a 28mm I need space, so at the same time, I'll start selling stuff. So watch this blog, I'll start soon enough. Oh, another reason. One of the comments about my pics from Salute said my camera tended to be slightly out of focus. He's right, I think it's slowly and painfully dying, after 10 good years of service. So I also need extra money to buy a new one.

Bonsoir a tous. Derriere la facade on ne peut plus amene de ces charmantes hotesses vous accueillant sur cette page, se cache une terrible verite: je suis devenu raisonnable, et je n'ai pas vraiment depense au Salute. J'ai deja ce dont j'ai besoin. Scandale! Un wargamer a toujours besoin de quelque chose! Ben non, justement. Apres mes achats Foundy sur Ebay, j'ai deja ce qu'il faut pour m'occuper pour un an je suppose. Et comme en plus je risque de manquer de place, je pense ouvrir rapidement une rubrique avec des trucs a vendre. Alors si vous voulez faire des affaires, surveillez les mises a jour.

Revenons a nos moutons kazaks. Au total, j'ai depense environ 40 livres, pour recuperer des bases chez Warbases, un blister Foundry, et 42 figs pour 24 livres a Simon.
Le genre de truc qu'on ne refuse pas quoi.

Parallement, il me faut economiser, car mon APN commence a rendre l'ame apres 10 de bons et loyaux services. Il devient difficile de faire des photos nettes meme a distance et reglages optimum. Bref, je me recentre.


  1. I didn't see them two young ladies at the show??

    1. I would have remembered them two....or four!

    2. Someone had them for lunch,

      OK someone had them as a snack whilst waiting in the que for lunch ;-)

  2. Nice... moustaches. Yes, moustaches, that's it. Ahem.

    You showed great restraint Seb. Good on you. You'll need all the willpower you can tap into if you're embarking on 28mm. It's the devil's own scale, scale you know. I sold my sold long ago...

    I noticed from others' shots from the show that you're now sporting a beard. Good man, it suits you and it gives your daughter something to tug for attention. :)

  3. What wonderful mankinis. Yes, it was definitely the mankinis that caught my eyes!

    That's not loot - call yourself a wargamer?!?!?! *lol*

  4. Funny first picture. The guy in the background has the "my wife is going to kill me" look on his face.
