Historicon 2011 Purchases, Final

   As I may have mentioned before, Historicon is a great place to buy toys. Most of the major vendors are there, or at least their US representatives for the manufacturers across the waters. Except for Eureka. Nic comes over from Australia. I think it is because he likes to wear silly hats halfway around the globe from home. Anyway, between the dealers and the flea market - pardon me, "Wally's Basement", there's always a lot of stuff to spend your money on. And so, the final rundown, adding on to those things I have mentioned already (i.e., not including them).
  • 2x Car Wars turning keys
  • 3x Monsterpocalypse buildings - for BattleTech
  • Empire Helblaster Volleygun - another Dane bargain

  • Musketeer Minis VBCW Militia Standards (3 figs)
  • Musketeer Minis VBCW Militia Boys ATR Team (2 figs)
  • Parroom Station (?) Martian "Holy Man"
  • 6mm Government Building (ptd.)
  • Fight's On! Suez Canal set
  • 2x Tactical Conflict Systems 6mm buildings

  • 2x Vallejo paints
  • 3x Army Painter basing materials
  • 4x random bits
  • 16x Small rock formations (orig. islands for POTSM)
   And I think that does it. I still did not find everything I was looking to purchase. But I spent my money anyway. I should have held on to some of it for eBay purchases, but what the heck. The total makes it to just over 300 figures of various scales (mostly 25), plus 65 terrain bits, several books, and a few generic supplies. Wow.
