Its hard to classify Stand To as a Wargames Show in the true sense of the word, given that entrance is free [yes free] the majority of people who attend the museum, are usually there to see the trains, there is usually only a small number of traders and the venue is well lit and warm. [ The last bit is a bit of playful devilishness by me] But actually I think the place is a very good venue because it is very well lit, the parking is good, and free, the cafe is also well run, although not the cheapest and the place does have stuff to see, ie very large trains.

I am old enough to realise this will never happen, but I was also in the fortunate position to have a bit of spare cash [ if there is such a thing] to ask Tony Runkee to paint me a unit of TAG Spahis of the Porte for me.
Anyway I finally got my finger out and based the figures up. Naturally I am really pleased about how they turned out, Tony certainly put some effort into what is a really fine range of figures. The irony is that I have myself re painted/touched up a unit of Mini Fig Akinji, bought from an old wargaming colleague, Rahul Sarnak, naturally there is a big contrast between the two sets of figures, but I actually like the charm of the Mini Figs, and although they do look a bit like Hobbit cavalry next to my TAG Spahis, I really dont mind at all. Anyway thanks again Tony for some beautiful figures, now if only I got a lottery ticket every week.
