Carronade 2015

Well with the yearly Carronade show just behind us, I thought it would be worth sharing my purchases from the event.

Generally I go to Carronade for the flea market to sell a load of unused models, and to have a look at the other games systems out there.

This year was no different, and while I didnt sell as much as I might usually do, I had considerably less to get rid of this year.

My purchases consist of:

While at the flea market I managed to pick up a sealed copy of Battletech for a bargin £25 (normally selling for £40).

This is sitting at home waiting for me to crack it open and get the Mechs painted, it will also allow me to delve into the table top (rather than just the board game) version as it comes with a nice number of Mechs of good detail.

I have had my eye on this since it was released and was really pleased I managed to pick up a copy.

My second purchase was probably mostly influenced by the number of people in my club that picked it up,


From discussing the game with the people at the stall it sounds like a very different style of sports game, and the number of people in my local area buzzing about it was outstanding. 

I ended up picking up a Full Engineers team and a partial Butchers team to allow me to demo it to people a little easier. 

We have facebook group setup for Scottish Guildballers (Guild Ball - Scotland), and if you are interested, or already have the game I would advise joining so you can find out where and when the events are being arranged. 

The remainder of the money I made will probably be going on an Aquan Leviathan as I cannot wait to get my hands on one, and the Directorate one already found its way into my possession.

Hopefully a few more posts over the next few weeks, a recent arrival to the family has disrupted my blogging, and had a marked impact before they arrived as well!
