But I did get to Selwig and, much to to my surprise, BLAM was being held at pub just a couple of miles away so, on my way home from work Friday, I nipped in for a look and a pint. There I met Giles, aka Eric the Shed, who was extremely hospital and has invited me for a quick go of his "Dad's Army" game.

Below are various pictures of other games that were going on at the time. They were just getting themselves set up on the Friday evening for a weekend of gaming and, no doubt, not a little amount of drinking.
|I really liked those trees|
|And a lovely Jack the Ripper game.|
On Sunday, managed to get myself to Selwig. I have to admit I wasn't feeling particularly good, but it seemed quite well attended and I picked up a few bits and bobs. I met a few fellow bloggers, Tasmin the War Gaming Girl and a couple of Posties Rejects. We had a quick chat. It has to be said a lot of the traders were selling very similar product as the war gaming market seems to be dominated more and more by the big players imho. It was, however, still a nice show.

Some of you might recognize the big chap in the middle; everyone seemed to be having a good time.

A very nice game of Chain of Command; really enjoyed the terrain - always something to aspire to. Had a good ole' chinwag with the gentleman running it. Unfortunately, I did not take that many photographs and the ones I did turned out to be rubbish. Might have something to do with my head full of cotton wool and day nurse.
Here is the mandatory picture of my swag - not a lot! Which just goes to show I was not at my best.
And, finally, a few things I have managed to complete on the painting and making front. It's been a bit slow going lately.

Some fire and explosion markers which I have copied from Giles' (Eric's) game on at BLAM.
And, finally, sun flowers
Cheers, until next time.
