Salute 2013.

I'm all excited about attending Salute this weekend. It has been some years since I went to Salute. I think I was a tad naive then, as I entered the painting competition expecting to win!
 I came a healthy second,but for the life of me I can't remember my entry, I think it was either a unit of Foundry Scots from the English Civil war or it was a unit of Citidal War's of the Roses long bowmen.
 I will not be embarrassing myself this time in the painting competition  as the standard is way too high, and is of course full of professional painters. All of whom are top notch.
  This time I am really keen to see the games, and get a good look at what is on show, and how I can pinch a few ideas from the games.
  I hope I don't get too side tracked at the trade stands and end up buying some figures that have nothing to do with my two current projects.

 Clearly I am not as excited as Paolo at the top of the page, but I am more excited than the two chumps below..........

 These photographs are purely for the benefit of all football loving northerners, especially John and Neil, after the weekends wonderful result in the Toon..........
 Anyone in the know, will realise that my affiliations lie with the red and white's.

 I had to mention the match and apologise to all non loving football [ soccer] fans.
 Still you could always refight the battle that took place in the historic streets around the central station in Newcastle, where infantry attempted to attack cavalry, and still came off second best.
Clearly heavy infantry are no match for a horse.

    1. Afternoon Guido,
      I assume that there is irony in the comment.
      Clearly Paolo di Canio is a bit mental, but I think the British media as usual took the lazy way out,and allowed David Milliband to feed them a non story,to cover his abandonment of the people of South Shields in order to further line his pockets in the USA.
      It was also very strange that he couldn't be found and had left the country when there were questions to be asked about his links to the multi national oil company that he got to sponser Sunderland.
      Here endeth the political lesson.
      Thanks Robbie.
