Salute 2017 haul

On April 22nd, was the Salute 2017 held by the South London Warlords. Salute is the biggest independent one-day wargaming and gaming event in the UK and likely in Europe. I visited the show last year in 2016, had a great time, as you can see here in the Parts I - IV of my coverage (Part I, Part II, Part III and Part IV).

This year, due to time issues, I couldn't be there myself, but a good friend of mine, living in Cambridge, was kind enough to bring along a few items for myself and even kinder to drop by the next day (24h express wargaming goodies delivery... so great 😀 ).

As some of the regular readers know, I have a weakness for limited miniatures, so the con miniature of a female russian bannerbearer was the minimum for this even. Even as I already have a sub with Wargames Illustrated digitally, and some of the Giants in Miniatures were already sold out, the purchase of a printed magazine was enough to acquire the exclusive Lionheart from them. Unfortunately we were to late for Lee & Clementine (got those during Mantic Open Day), so we spend the mantic points on Negan and Zombie Ronnie.

Over the years I've gathered quite a few limited, exclusive and rare miniatures from all kinds of different events and occasions. Currently tinkering on how to cover that part on this blog. If you have a good idea to share, please let me know.

At Osprey Games / Northstar, some pre-release sprues from the upcoming plastic dwarves were available and those were high on my wishlist. Stay around, as I'll cover them in a short review.

To be honest, there was something missing, to receive the miniatures and "haul" from a certain event but not participating. It is still half a year until Crisis, but a few other events are along the way, like last weeks Ad Arma Con.
