Actually, I made a small profit, due to the sale of a collection of unwanted painted figures, but we're probably talking pennies rather than pounds!
So, I collected a couple of painted figures off Mark Allen, namely a French Revolutionary War French commander with a couple of separate aides, and a vignette representing General Abercrombie at the time of the Helder Campaign in 1799. Gorgeous pieces as one would expect from Mark's talented hand and I am sure they'll both do well on the wargames table, but not at the same time of course!
I also acquired two painted Royal Navy longboats/landing boats complete with crews off Grubby Tanks (they own the old Britannia range of 28mm figures) to kick start my requirements for staging the landings at Callantsoog by the British in 1799. I just have to paint the other four I had already purchased!
I had wanted to buy another squadron each of light dragoons and heavy dragoons off Duncan at Trent but someone had already cleaned him out by the time I got there. They're on back order and I should get them by the weekend. Then there are two cornfields off The Treefellas. They look great and will fit in nicely with my other bit of zig-zag fencing purchased off them via eBay last year.
No more shows for me now for a while. I doubt I shall make it to Durham as we're just back off holiday, but August could be another busy month with accommodation for Claymore and The Other Partizan already booked. The end of June will see the advent of a special treat but more of that nearer the time.
After my trip this weekend I have also decided that I will scrub Salute off my list of shows to visit in the future as there's much better things to see closer to home and at a lesser cost to the purse just to get there.
