Painting Star Wars Armada: Rebel Squadron Expansion

I put the finishing touches on the B Wing fighters this morning from the Rebel Fighters expansion which completes that set off.  I've really enjoyed painting these and though they're not painted to the highest quality they look really good on the table top (certainly better than the bare plastic).

Next up is the second squadron expansion which includes E Wings, Z95's and the Ghost from SW Rebels which I'm looking forward to working on.

Salute Haul

Another great trip to Salute and another haul to look through (though we were a bit more restrained this year:

This year's bounty

New offerings from World of Twilight

AVP 2.0 upgrade set

A good selection of 4Ground buildings bought with an eye towards the upcoming game but also to double as Bree or for use in Dragon Rampant

Some Snail Walls from Hysterical Games

Some evil dwarfs from Titan Wargames for use as Immortals in my Abyssal Dwarf army

A Tunnel Dweller and Angel from Heresy Miniatures

Two sets of femal Russian Snipers for Amy from Bad Squiddo Games

Two sets of paints from Scale 75 which Amy picked

A selection of bits a pieces need for the hobby and some Seaweed Snacks from Hasslefree (these were tasty)

The contents of the Salute goody bag (including a very handy female Russian banner bearer for Amy)

Salute 2017 - Live Blog!

Today I'm at Salute in London and will attempt some form of live blog, taking pictures as I go.

First up is the queue of course!

That was about an hour ago but it's filled up a bit since.

Filling up good and proper now

Some of the stands visited so far...

Headed over to the 4Ground stand to check out Fabled Realms, will definitely be picking this up at Kickstarter.

Some lovely evil Dwarfs that will be making their way into my Abyssal Dwarf army from Titan Wargames.

Quick lunch break now back to it.

Oh yes...

Battle Systems always impresses.

Doctor Who at the Warlord stand.

Some nice bits from Fenris Games.

And that's it for this year, pictures of the swag should go up tomorrow.
