Colours is only one week away, I am sure the workshop it holding baited breath wait for your discounted orders for Martin to take to the show.

Martin is hoping to be near the completion of the SCW stuff, so go along and play the taster game and pick up your force for which every side takes your fancy.
You can be aligned with the power house of military production for the time. Or bring home your experienced foreign veterans to join the fight. Or just pick up a force that fought on both sides.
You'll have the paints from painting 20th century armies.
You can still have a flag for most units to look pretty. Lots of lovely red roofed buildings.

A lovely game that is not to taxing and from a period that led into the Second World War.

Sorry I won't be able to join you all on Saturday for this year's Colours: we have family over for the weekend from overseas, so it felt a bit rude to slope off and leave them alone. Although I was tempted...

I hope you all have a fun and profitable day!

Apart from the man himself (and his merry band) who's off to colours tomorrow?
I will be there myself along with my elder boy.
I'm looking at getting some more pp western figures and maybe a look at the new ruskies.

I was very pleased with the show.
The loading and unloading was good.
The stand and surroundings were good as usual. there was even some helpers at the packing up stage. Thanks to the Colours gang!


Nice to see various group members there. That is what shows do really well...the social side! Always good to chat and converse. it drives the work forward.

Had a great day at Colours, well done to Peter Pig for being fun guys to be with. Martin has done a superb job on the new Spanish Civil War truck and armour car masters, he goes beyond others. Nigel was a star on the stand, and let's not forget Mike who put a shift in in the factory. Well done guys, your a credit to the industry. Plus what a great guy Rob is, running all the Vietnam games, and ignoring our stupid errors and question whilst maintaining a smile
Top day all round.
