Yesterday I went to the Skirmish Wargaming and Toy Soldier show at Sidcup. Skirmish is a twice a year event, is relatively small and is (IMHO) a great event to bring kids to. I brought my youngest daughter along and even dragged my long suffering wife to the show for a couple of hours. Here's a selection of my pictures from the day.

Although this is a small show - expansion at this location is probably impracticable - it is always a show I enjoy going to. There are not many traders but there is a lot of variety and plenty of bargains to be had. I came home with some more MDF buildings and the FOW book Monty's Meatgrinder plus a few other small items. Even my daughter was able to find a boxed board-game for a few pound which we played when we came home. All in all a very satisfying morning.
