Border Reiver 2018 – Gateshead

Popped down to my local show today, Border Reiver at Gateshead Stadium. Not a huge show but some good traders there and it’s always good to support the local show. Spent a lot of time chatting with people and managed to be quite restrained with purchases. I’d wanted to do the tabletop sale but didn’t get my act together in time – maybe at Battleground….

There was a reasonable spread of games (demo and participation) including by my two local clubs: Tyneside Wargames Club and Whitley Bay 3D Gamers. The former doing some ancient naval action and the latter delving into the realm of the samurai!

My purchases were rather restrained. Some more trees from Andy at Last Valley, some Artizan Viking Hirdmen from Colonel Bill, some rather lovely Viking Shieldmaidens from Footsore, and some paints. I was very careful this year. Last night I checked all the paints I was low on. There were six. I then checked the ‘spares’ box and there were new bottles of ALL of them. Needless to say I still convinced myself I was running out of Dark Prussian Blue so bought a bottle and now have two spares…

Nice to chat with lots of people as well though I didn’t natter as much as I usually do…honest… I could have bought more but I’m trying to be sensible at the moment…

A good day then and thanks to the Border Reiver chaps for organising it all!
