Salute Haul

It's been 3 years since my last visit to Salute and it seemed to be bigger. I entered the hall about 11.45 and the bags and free figures had just gone but there was no queue.
There were so many traders to see and as I didn't know I was able to go until that morning I didn't have a plan or shopping list. This meant less time to look at games, though what I did see looked good. I did stop off and chat to one of the gamers from the Jersey Privateers Games Club. They had a nice 15mm WW2 game with FOW miniatures and some lovely scenery. Good effort and nice chaps (though I'm biased as I'm and islander myself).

As for the haul here it is

Apart from the obvious there are a couple of extra vehicles for the NSL and a couple of packets of extra troops for the GZG NAC I painted earlier this year.

Overall I enjoyed the show and was impressed with the amount of traders though some of them need more space (Empress for example) and there seemed to be space available. My only gripes would be that the light in the hall was poor and I was amazed to see that the parking fee had nearly doubled in 3 years to £15 (criminal).
