People had come from all over Europe, possibly did the same as me and combined it with a long weekend. I went with friends Kay and Rog and we took in the V&A, Natural History and British Museum as well as a visit to a book shop with the biggest Osprey section I have ever seen!
On the whole the show was a bit of an anti-climax for me, these days I can't afford metal 54mm figures and much of it was over priced. It lacked a lot of what wargames shows have, notably any games! It is purely a collectors fair and didn't have the community spirit you might find at such a show as Smoggycon. Never the less it was worth seeing. The turnover of new releases in the toy soldier scale is so slow, it'll probably be a few years before I feel like going to another one. I think I am more a wargamer and collector of the smaller scales these days.
Here is a pictoral review of a few things that caught my eye.
