Mikey always takes a gym bag of stuff and gets a flea market table. Sometimes he is just selling things from a previous flea market. But I'm not judging. He often makes buck or two on the deal.
This year I managed to see him before he left and was organised enough to send some of my own lead pile, hoping that with the greater attendance at Fall In over Hotlead, my unwanted treasures might find new homes and fetch decent prices.
When I found out that Sergeant Major Miniatures would be in attendance I sent a list of things to pick up. What Mikey sold covered most of my list, so I've managed a tidy exchange of unwanted lead for new lead that I'm actually interested in. So a Dwarf king with standards and more axe wielding huscarls for two more units of elite foot. Elf bowmen (can you have enough?). Orc command, spearmen and archers to make two more units of foot with integrated archers.
Mikey also gave me this nice 15mm resin Eastern European/Russian church that he snagged for three bucks.
Tonight I also finished up a big 60 tree bag of Henke pine trees giving me 90 more. While I was at it I refurbished my old pine trees that I removed from their CDs and rebased to match.
I've also been working on the first contingent from Middle Earth.
