Purchase Plans for Fall-In!
When I attend a convention, I always go with the idea that I'm "not going to spend much this time!" Really, I do try to buy my miniatures from my FLGSs in the area. There are miniatures that my FLGS cannot stock or special order so I am left with either not starting projects that use those miniatures or buying them at conventions. I rarely buy over the internet unless there is a sale or I get a deep discount. With Old Glory raising their shipping cost to $9 per order I won't be ordering online with them very much.
WWI: I need some Old Glory WWI German Heavy Machine Guns. I also want to get a Mark IV tank for my son, who's building a WWI British force to roll over my Germans.
Ancients: Ships, we like 28mm ancient ships so a trip to the Merrimack Shipyards (part of Old Glory) is in order
Napoleonics: I was going to purchase a few Austrians from the new 2e line. However, with the increase in shipping costs by OG I may not start this project.
Age of Glory
WWI: More British Infantry from Great War Miniatures
AWI: Perry Miniatures Tarelton's Cavalry, Southern Campaign British and Patriot Militia.
I really like the guys that run their booth so I have to stop by to say "hi" and then end up buying stuff from them. They have a great selection of terrain odds and ends (for me) and also good discounts on historical plastics. At least in the past they have.
Napoleonics: Victrix British Centre Company, maybe a box of French Line
Do you know of any company that will be there selling pre-made trench system for WWI?
That's pretty much all that I need so far and it seems Age of Glory is destined to get most of the money I plan on spending. 2010 is shaping up to be an AWI, Napoleonic and WWI projects in 28mm for me.
