Apart from collecting old toy soldiers and gaming I also like to convert and paint figures, sadly I don't get enough time for this part of the hobby but it gives me a great appreciation for the work of other people. Here are some I picked up at the show which will be gracing the games on my table at some point in the future.
Collecting Toy Soldiers
When I have a little money, I buy Toy Soldiers; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes. (with apologies to:) ERASMUS

Plastic Warrior 2023 - New stuff
Peter Cole of Replicants usually launches his new figures at the Plastic Warrior Show and here is this year's offering. Two sets (4 figures in each) of medieval peasants, and they are revolting, as they did!

Plastic Warrior Show 2023
The PW Show has been running annually since 1985 (2 years COVID lockdown excepted), and on Saturday someone said to me "It pretty much runs itself now doesn't it". Well, no it doesn't, there are always problems, there are so many things outside of our control, and the Gods love to have fun with mortals who make plans. This year they had a lot of fun and we had a lot of challenges but the support and camaraderie of the enthusiasts who overcame the travel problems and turned up carried the day. So if you were one of them, thank you, you're the ones who really make the show.

Battle Cry Vitoria 2
Here are the rest of the pictures I took of last year's game of Vitoria, which Anthony played using the Battle Cry rules system.
