Yorkshire shows - Vapnartak 3rd Feb @ York Race Course

Hello fellow Northeners (and Southerners willing to travel!), just thought I'd check to see if anyone has plans to attend any of our local shows.

Fiasco is going on in Leeds this coming weekend, although I'm unfortunately tied up with a niece's (she'd better behave herself :x ) birthday.

I do hope to get to Recon and catch up with Andy from Four A Miniatures - he's hinted he may have some more Kev Adams Goblins by then. Recon is on Saturday 1st December at Pudsey Civic Hall.

There's also Vapnartak in York - Sunday 13th Feb 2013 at the Race Course. I think its one of the biggest up here and always good fun.

Fabian has mentioned he's up for Vapnartak and I'll have to get in touch and see if my old pal Hetzer, who I finally met up with at last year's show, is coming along too.

Anyone else interested in meeting up for a pint?

Any other shows going on that folk go to up here?

Yarp - he posted some of his lovely Dwarves and Orcs on the Warhammer forum too.

Re: Yorkshire shows

Cool :) Met him at Salute 2007 at the Frothers game; he won't remember, I'm sure, but I was playing some plucky doomed wood elves, and he fielded some lovely old dark elves.

Re: Yorkshire shows

Small world! Or at least this wargaming is a relatively small community nationally.

I'll have to see if he still answers his pm's over on Frothers - had a nice pint with him and the legendary Steders at Vapnartak earlier this year.

Re: Yorkshire shows

Smoggycon is in Middlesbrough on 24th November (bit far out for most of you other Yorkshire guys though, I think). I shall try to go with some of my local club.

Re: Yorkshire shows

Fiasco was great. I now have 12 Perry knights, plus metal mounted men at arms, plus lots of priests and monks and cardinals for the churchmen of Morr, Myrmidia, Mercopio (etc) in my upcoming foray into the realm of Tilea. Oh, and a Italianate tower, and a wagon and draft horses, and some other bits and bobs.
