Salute 2018 first peek

I'm back from Salute 2018 and its been another amazing celebration of our wonderful and extraordinary hobby. I have taken a shed load of pictures as usual and hopefully tomorrow I will find time to start editing, labelling and sorting them for upload. In the meantime here's a couple of choice pictures to tease you with.

Two Tanks...a Replica of a WWI Mk IV and a sci-fi tank from a popular TV series!

The doors open and eager gamer's begin to flood in.

I had a good day!

Battlegroup Torch - The Battle of Medjez Valley,Tunisia 1943

Zombie Salute!!

Salute is the biggest show I attend and I have to say its gets physically harder every year. I hurt all over and feel like I've gone ten rounds with a very angry King Kong. I think its time 'BigLee' lost a few pounds and gave this old body a break...mind you I said that last year (and the year before). Despite the screaming feet and aching limbs my day isn't over as I have a 'surprise' party to go to tonight (wink, wink, Ray). I'm driving so I can't even dull the pain with alcohol... its a hard life, but somebody has to do it!

More photo's and a full show report tomorrow. 


  1. Thanks for sharing, battle of Medjez Valley looks awesome!

  2. Damn! I'd missed that "Zombie Salute" game - great idea :)

    It was good to see you again Lee. Have fun tonight! :)

  3. I always intend to lose weight before Salute but never do either!

  4. And who is the author of Zombie Salute?
    Great idea and terrific performed

  5. Well done, Lee; couldn't make it this year, so your AAR is eagerly awaited and welcome! 😁
