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.
