Partizan 2019

So today me, James, Dave and Scotty drove down to Newark for Partizan, OK so Dave drove and I had a nap in the back seat. This was the 1st time I've been to a show and not been putting on a game. I love putting on a game but always have a nagging doubt that I'm missing out on the shopping bit. More of that later.
There were loads of cool looking games and the usual suspects trading. 1st up the games, as usual my photos lack information

Dave and Scotty shivering timbers

There were loads more games but running out of go on the phone.

So on to the shopping, have about 4 hours to shop and bought very little.

Old Glory Grand Scale 7YW Austrians. Enough Infantry for 5 musketeer regiments of 2 battalions, 3 regiments of dragoons, 2 regiments of grenzers and some officers. Got 15% off cos the guy couldn't add up. So about the same price as Pendraken. Sculpts are good but figures are a little big, bases are thicker and that is most of the difference. 

Rosa Luxembourg - show freebie

6 mounted samurai for £5

New Harry Sidebottom, bought from and signed the man himself - he's a regular and I do like his books.

And that was it. Shopping wasn't fab so think it will be back to putting on a game. Meanwhile it's back to painting Germans for the Utah beach game in a fortnight - only 2 platoons to go and some transfers


  1. Disappointing shopping I,thought maybe it was just targets this time .

    Definitely missed putting on a game mind

    1. I agree. Maybe we have reached that stage in life or maybe we go to these things too often. I do 5/6 times per year and its the usual suspects
