Salute 2016 – Part II

After the introduction on Salute, welcome back on Part Two on Tuesday.

As Salute is an international event, there are companies from all over the world and of course from Germany as well. The well known Pirates from Freebooter Miniatures participated once again at the Salute. And of course, no show without some nifty releases - bringing small ships and boats to Freebooters Fate, individually and as a special bundle offer.

Not only for the Lead Adventure folk, Oshiro Modelterrain by Jim Bibbly, was a must visit. He fixed up the LAF members with badges, offered terrain pieces, and to round it up, even had a solid 6 by 8 ft table with his buildings.
