I spent a very good three hours there, did some buying and some chatting and some checking out of different products.
My purchases. I am continuing with assembling an Ottoman force, a slowly but definitely growing collection.
From Dixon Miniatures.

|A few sipahis|
From Irregular Miniatures
|Last year I bought some Old Glory artillery and crews, these are the limbers for them plus a camel waggon|
|A unit of Wallachian irregulars, eight figures for twelve pounds.|
Also, I thought I should have a commander for my force.
|From Warlord, Suleyman the Magnificent, the Lawgiver|
During the last eighteen months I have been reducing my metal mountain, so I restrict my spending at shows. This time I took 100 pounds as my budget and I spent 84 pounds. Success, plus the infantry and the limbers will help me to finish some units I have started.
So I had a good day at Vapnartak. I bought some good figures, stayed within budget, had some nice chats and, being over 60, I got free admission. What more could a man want?
