Fiasco

Spent Sunday down in Leeds at the Fiasco show, organised by Leeds Wargamers. Held at the New Dock Hall opposite the Royal Armouries.

A nice drive down despite the rain, as the roads were mostly free of traffic. Venue is a decent size for the event and was not overcrowded. The actual footprint of the stalls appeared bigger than at Phalanx but that could be because of fewer stalls rather than larger floorspace.

Purchased some more 28mm French and Indian War miniatures from AWMiniatures at a reasonable rate. Hopefully the new purchases will kick start me to finish/start the previous batch of FIW figures I bought off North Star at Phalanx in June along with the Musket & Tomahawk rules. Also bought some 4Ground mdf buildings to go with them.

Spent the rest of the afternoon across the square at the Royal Armouries, a place I've not visited in a decade. The dockland area surrounding the site being totally transformed; The exhibits inside not so much, but at least it's free admission. The place still requires a day to go round in full, but managed to take in the bulk of the four impressive main halls.
