Battleground Show - Saturday 26th November 2016

Hi folks,

Just a quick post to say I will be attending the Battleground Show, though not in a professional manner.

Following my extended illness I didn't book a Trade Stall for Battleground, and when I finally felt back to myself again it was a little too late.

For those with painting commissions nearing completion, I can bring these to the show. I can also bring along any sales from my 'For Sale' pages to save on postage.

I am also happy to meet to collect models for painting, though please let me know if you are planning on dropping off a large quantity as I don't drive and this is my local show so I will be walking too and from the venue. I can bring a backpack if needed!

The details of this great, though somewhat small show can be found here -

I hope to see you there!
