Salute 2011

Well, I missed Salute this year for obvious reasons but, to be honest, I'm not that fussed.

It's such a sprawling event that in recent years I've ended up all hot and bothered by the end of the day and haven't really enjoyed the atmosphere as much as I do at Colours or Warfare. In the past I've  taken my eldest son to Salute but would have to take both of the boys if I went now, which would mean the inevitable fraternal fisticuffs, so probably best avoided.

If I had gone I would have been over to the Brigade stand to check out the re-published Squadron Commander 3600 sci fi fighter combat rules and models. I really don't need another project but, if I did, I'd be sorely tempted by this range.

I'd also be over at the Peter Pig stand to have a look at the re-published Hammerin' Iron rules and the flashy new river mat. I have a big box of Peter Pig and Thoroughbred ships that I will one day get around to starting on either for Iron and Fire or Hammerin' Iron, which I have a copy of in it's old version. It's too much to start now though given my existing pile of half finished stuff that I need to clear out or complete.

I'll get to Colours and Warfare this year instead so will check out both of these products then.
