AAR Salute 2012

My 300th post :)

Here a short AAR of my days in London and ofcourse Salute 2012. The trip was well worth. Broke my spending budget by far, dont tell my wife...

Stephen that running Janners Jaunt was kind enought to guide me around in London, introducing me to nice fellows in the hobby and allso showed me the splendid Wallace Collection...or at least the 4 rooms with arms and armours:)

So in short I had some greate days in London and at salute !!!

Stephen was helping out at the Oshiro modelterrains stunning Samurai demo.

Oshiro modelterrain are run by James, a really talanted modelmaker.

Skraelings by Gripping Beast, I didn´t get any... But I picked up my small pre-order and got a chanse to say hi to Andy and Darren, realy nice chaps!

David Imire and Andrew Taylor at Claymore Castings was runing a realy nice demo game. 

Romans vs. caledonians using the in-development version of Dux Britanniarum from TooFatLardies

This game caught my interest, its a Baltic Crusade game using the in-development rules Deus Vult! by Fire Forge games

They had a realy nice pre-production copy to flicker through... Looking forward to the release later this year:)

3-ups of the comming Fire Forge games plastic crusader infantry. The pland to release 2 boxes, armoured and unarmoured by the end of this year. 

Now I´m back at the conveyor belt, painting 2 SAGA warbands on commission...then I will continue with my Kalmar Union War Project...
