A request of people going to Salute:

Think of me and the other FoD members who would like to go but are on the other side of the globe, while you are enjoying the shiney toys and games.  Don't do anything we wouldn't do :lalala:
Cult of Inevitable Decay painted:  93/123 (Heresy), 22/22 (non Heresy)

What was that universal greeting?  "Bah weep, grah nah weep, ninny bong!"  Hot Rod, Transformers: The Movie

I have a tweeter thing now.  I might even use it.  @leadpaintshed if I can figure out how to

I'm afraid so. Only the sealed cockpit version but two leg positions and about 10 of each.

There was one left at the end so there may be a chance of ordering one once they go into the shop over the next couple of weeks.

Well, if somebody had say, bought one of each leg variant then maybe they would be able to describe the difference... But as we don't know anyone like that ...

We survived Salute 2012...woohooo!

We had a brilliant day, almost no hitches, ran out of stock on some items,  did a load of gossipping, met old friends and made some new ones.

The HF crew were brilliant.  Thanks so much to Neil, Donna, Tim, Steve, Matt, Imogen and Sarah.  Kieran did well making sure everyone got their pre-orders and my gorgeous hubby was his amazing self as usual.  He even did all of the interviews i didnt want to do (ha!ha!...love you KJ!)

Thanks lots to everyone who stopped by and said "hello" and spent their hard-earned cash with us, we appreciate it very very much.

Thanks lots

Sally :) XX

Sorry about the different walker thing...I asked Kev about the difference late in the day (I thought it was open cockpit/closed cockpit...) and was enlightened but a bit too late for some people :(.

It seemed to be much better this year. Slightly fewer racks to police, more people working the stand, more space to move about, better opportunity for a leg stretch and from the weight of my money pouch, a good day's trading to boot!

Kev and Sally seemed to be more relaxed as well...more time to enjoy the day.

It was my best Salute yet and I was almost disappointed when I had to go for a bit of shopping away from the stand.

I've said it once and I'll say it again...I had a blast so roll on next year! :mrgreen:

Dont worry about it Inso - it will probably take me 6 months to assemble and paint the one I bought !  :lol:
Oh by the way Kev, hope I didnt offend you with my opening "height" comment - felt an idiot as soon as I said it.............  :oops:

Not the greatest day, on a personal note, after exploding minis and wrong categories, but was really good to catch up with Sally and Kev and some of the helpers too.
Thanks also for the prezzie, Sally. I'll be getting to the painting table as soons as possible  :wink:
