2010, I Salute you
So today I ordered my advance tickets to Salute 2010 – a wargames convention held here in London’s Docklands on April 24th. I went along last year out of curiosity, expecting it to be filled with historical wargamers (you know the sort – they’ve got cases of 500+ Hoplites or Prussian Cavalry or something). Turned out I had a really good day, buying my first Flames of War stuff and seeing plenty to keep me interested.
This year I’m looking forward to returning and have also decided that I shall probably enter the painting competition. I think I’ll use the competition as a motivator to finish the Canoness, which I’ve been painting in dribs and drabs lately.
I don’t believe I’ll win anything as there are some awesome painters out there but I’m looking forward to the practice of preparing and entering a contest miniature. Practice which will hopefully stand me in better stead for a Golden Demon entry later in the year.
Better watch this space then for more frequent updates. I hope.
