Cavalier 2018 - Show Pictures at last!

Over the weekend I went to the Cavalier Wargames Show in Tonebridge in Kent. This is traditionally the first show of the year for the Rejects and usually marks the end of a long winter without any shows (SELWG is usually our last of the year). For me its been even longer as I missed SELWG last year due to car problems, so by the time Sunday came around I was very eager indeed! Its taken a couple of days to sort out the pictures, mainly because I have been working hard on my latest entries for the Painting Challenge. So here, at last, are my pictures of a great little show. 

Ray & Postie start early, buying some buildings before the show had even official opened

David Lanchester photobombs me taking a picture of his stand

Eagle Figures... I bought a load of MDF bases from them.

Debris of War - Tufts, Static Grass and Hedgerows filled my bag after visiting these guys

Hailsham Wargames Club - Da Vinci Wars - A slight fantastical version of the Italian Wars

Lots of very impressive Pike Blocks

More Pikes!

The Bring and Buy was very busy all day. 

As was the mine trading hall. 
All in all a great day and I went home with a nice bag of goodies, feeling much better after my prolonged fast!
