Broadside Loot


Yesterday saw Broadside 2014 take place in Sittingbourne. Having a pretty stacked weekend, with jobs and visitors to the new house, I only managed a flying visit to make sure I supported this local event. I did have a couple of things that might be considered a shopping list, but didn't have my heart set on anything.

The Leisure Centre where it is held was quite busy and the main traders/gamers hall was downstairs, so you had to pass through the hellishly hot atmosphere of the swimming pool changing area to get there. Once in the hall there was a lot going on, lots of familiar faces and traders. I managed a couple of laps of the hall, as well as a chat with friends, before I had to make a sharp exit to go home and cut the grass before guests arrived (yay!).


As is often the way, I did manage to come home with a few things. First of all were the two items that I had on my 'list'. Army Painter Daemonic Yellow – spray can and bottled paint. This is for a new project that will appear on the blog shortly – it has been started but not much to show just yet.


Of course there is always the impromptu purchase and this time it was the TIE Bomber for X-Wing and some plastic movement templates. They've been on the long-term list for some time so I thought I would save some postage and get them while they were sitting in front of me (calling to me). I did almost purchase another 4Ground building after the success of the Saxon Hovel, but my restraint (and time) won the day on this occasion.

    1. Indeed, alas I was there barely 30 minutes. I think we should support the local shows when possible, else they're going to disappear

  2. Now what do you need yellow primer for? Very restrain Mr Reynolds, I'm impressed!

    1. I was quite restrained, but getting the spray can has saved a lot of postal grief so totally worth it. Yellow is not a colour you often see in a spray but it could save me hours! More soon ;)

  3. The yellow is unfortunately the one army painter spray I have not had much luck with. It doesn't seem to be at the same level of quality as the others. I would suggest spot testing and then you may need to prime white first.

    1. Ahh cool. Thanks for the advice – I will definitely try it first before committing all my models!
