I ended last week with a trip to Phalanx at St Helens. The show was a bit of a treat as I spent a large part of last week decorating the kitchen. I say decorating it was mainly renovation and repainting. I took my camera but it stayed in my bag. If you want some photos of the show Will McNally's blog has a few.
My haul was relatively modest: six 15 mm figures for my Islamic Persian army, Gush's "Renaissance Armies 1480-1650" (1982 edition), and a 38 year old UK war comic for £1.00. You'd think this wouldn't offer much by way of distractions but it did. Let me explain.
