Only issue I have had from Armypainter Matt varnish is when the weather is slightly damp or chilled and that can offer some misting.

I find brush on varnish much more robust so for 28ís I brush on a gloss varnish then spray the Matt once dry to tone it down.  Although I may now take Martins too too.

There is a lot of stuff going on in the market and my concern is they become saturated as not enough followers or manufacturers cannot keep up with releases or offer up units that are in expansion books.  There is a fair chunk of alternative WW2 stuff out there with Gucci kit or zombies, vampires etc.  That could be easy to set up with current WW2 tweaks and tweaks to PBI.  But I think most historical periods have now had the pleasure of steam punk or zombies being added.

Still working my way through George RR Martins Game of Thrones series having started again, and picked up a prequel too.

Some reference books for ACW and WW2.

Not rfcm linked but organising a one day fun Xwing event with my kids and a couple of friends.

Other half will purchase gaming related items for me with some guidance.  Although I wanted a perry French nap artillery crew, she couldnít work out which so got me one of each from their website.  Didnít have the heart to tell her I didnít need that many!

Boss minis was an online war game shop.  Hopefully expanding but my experience with shops are they try to run before they can walk.  The gaming market can be fashion led so small stores over spend on a range of items that they find go out of favour.

I hope they read their business well as you canít beat going to a bricks and mortar store for both purchasing and social needs.

There have been a couple more ups and downs across Bournemouth and Poole.

Martin remembering his rules, is this the same Martin?

Really looking forward to this, let me know how to get you the cash.  Should have grabbed it off me on Sunday.

I was a grid doubter then realised thanks to PBI that you don't notice it.  Nuts really as I had up until then played battletech with hexes!!

All interesting points, good comments on shows. 

You missed off 'Lee will return'.

And it looks like Wargaming companies will look better at the market to make sure their business model is going to work in a market place saturated with systems.
