Sunday 22nd May 2016 - Partizan @ Newark
Held in an 'aircraft-hanger' type building - high humidity, much noise, good light. No cash facilities on site. Very few 15mm figures around. I should have taken my camera - some of the demo games were notable - Witch Racing (Terry Pratchett characters) - Clothes Pegs armies that looked both retro and spectacular - Very British Civil War.
Also met up with several of my fellow bloggers including the semi-legendary Tamsin. Still didn't ask her about 'Junglegrave'. Damn!
My only purchases were two books:
Published by the Pike and Shot Society in 2009 - £10 (courtesy of a loan from John Smith). I had looked at this tome at another show and then 'hummed and harred' about it. This time I took the plunge.
Published 1974 (hardback) for £1.95 - I bought it for £3. Been interested in this war for some time - and it would use up some of the mountain of half-painted Airfix Napoleonics.
It took me 1 hour and 5 mins to travel the 50 miles to get to Newark. Turning off the A1 was easy enough but the three lane roundabout that you are pushed into was a nightmare. So would I go again? Well......maybe if they have a few more 15mm figures for sale!

Wednesday 25th May 2016 - Still waiting for summer.
Dull and rainy all day - 9 degrees in the evening, Managed to get some painting done - various bits for my Renaissance armies.
Must get around to splashing some paint on the new WW1 British (Tropical) figures for the upcoming 18th June scrap. Probably use "I Wish I Was in France". Would help if I worked out a scenario as well.
Almost finished another book - third in the series - "The First Colonial Soldiers". Review in due course!
