I think this year will see more WW2 action.
One of the vendors was a chap blowing out his stock from his now closed Flames of War store. I'd been thinking that my Germans needed a few more SP guns and these Brummbärs at 5 dollars each were too cheap to pass up.
|Clearly says "Late" on the package. Oh well. I like schurzen.|
Didn't notice until I got them home that one is a late model with MG42 ball mount and schurzen, and the other is an early model. Silly me. But I don't think my Germans will mind. Fortunately for the wallet he didn't have any Panzerjaeger IVs or Hetzters.
Then on Sunday while I was availing myself of the coffee nearby, I thought "Hey! I bet he's got Russians." Sure enough. At 10 bucks a blister pack I've got enough regular infantry and SMG troops for Chain of Command.
|Trying to sort out what I've got. Looks like 4 sections of rifles and 5 sections of SMG troops plus a variety of Big Men|
I'll wait to add tanks.
For Saturday's Bring and Buy a chap I know was lugging in a box. " Oooh, watcha got?"
"My Flames of War stuff"
So I grabbed his pack of nicely painted up entrenchments and told Scott that he really needed a US Armoured Combat Team. Which he decided he did.
|My Russians can dig in even before they are painted!|
Bought some terrain bits from Ontario Hobbit Adventures, who were mostly demoing the Games Workshop Hobbit game on a couple of very nice little boards.
|Happy staff at the Ontario Hobbit Adventures booth|
|3 for 5 dollars deal on the bushes. A stack of primed and ready to paint grain sacks plus some pots and wicker baskets. I may remove the snow from the Gondor statue. Not sure.|
A pack of Renedra plastic gabions for mediaeval and fantasy siege lines.
|Been trying to get these for a year, but he's always been sold out|
A pack of Full Battle Rattle's Afghanistan war 28mm Canadians, just because.
And some free books. Although the one about Sam Hughes is on extended loan.
|Command Legacy will probably be dry but informative. Sam Hughes and his relationship with Sir Arthur Currie is important to understanding Canada in WW1|
