CRISIS 2014!

Saterday it was again time for the show I wouldn't like to miss. And like every year it was a great one again! Arrived there a little bit before ten o'clock, and there a queu of waiting halfway the parking area. So many people visiting this event! It becomes bigger and bigger every year.

As every year we have a little meeting with the members of Benno's Figures Forum. We all agreed that this year there wasn't much to buy in our usual scale of 1/72. But that couldn't spoil the fun! We had a great meeting.

From left to right:
Benno, Remco, Kristina, me, Jan with his son and in the back Martin.

Michael on the right joined us.
But most important of this show are the gaming tables. I took pictures (a lot), but can't name them. From some of them I took a picture of the name of the battle, but most of them didn't have that. Here they come, enjoy the tour:

Battle of Poitiers.

    1. Thanks Mario, and it was great meeting you again! The loot? Well maybe I tell something about, but maybe not! There are some secret purchases amongst them for the painting competitions on Benno's. I will think about it!

  6. Schitterende foto reeks Peter en is nog steeds een zeer mooie beurs ook dit jaar kon ik niet aanwezig zijn door een geplande vakantie met de Kids en zo te zien toch weer een leuke beurs gemist.
    Trouwens er was een forum collega aanwezig die zijn vrouwe ten huwelijk heeft gevraagd op het podium. ...
