Going to Salute!

Salute is one of the best regarded miniature gaming shows in England.  Lots of cool looking display games and an abundance of things for nerds like me to blow vast quantities of cash on.  Retail therapy times a thousand.

I am lucky enough to be flying to London on Friday April 15th to go to an art exhibition with Mrs Sho3box, swanning boozily around for the evening after dinner and then attending Salute for a few hours on Saturday.  We fly home that that evening after what I hope to be a small but perfectly formed trip.

I have my small shopping list made out and I hope to pick up some odd bits and pieces that I might never get around to buying online.  Seeing some great game displays in person will be inspiring too.

I will be bringing my camera and I will be putting some photos up here on Sunday 17th with a bit of luck.

If anyone reading this is going to be at Salute and fancies meeting up and/or experiencing the heady thrill of having their photo taken avec moi then let me know 🙂

  1. Myself and a couple of the rejects are going my friend, no problem with meeting up briefly between all the hectic shopping.


  2. Thats cool TAL 🙂

    I had read that you were going to travel on your blog so I was going to drop you an email. I will get in touch and we can meet up to shake hands for a photo op 🙂


  3. No problem.


  4. Good for you. I’m envious. Buy too many things and take lots of pictures.


    • Budget is tight, so a short shopping list is being prepared. I do hope to come back with at least one thing that I hadnt planned for though, something that takes me by surprise.

      My main emphasis will be on picking up Judge Dredd related stuff though. Thats the project coming up after my Gorkamorka stuff with a bit of luck.

      I plan to take loads of photos. I havent been to Salute before, so I am really looking forward to it 🙂


  5. Cool, I wouldn’t mind going to a show like that at some point. We have nothing like it in Sweden, the closest are various gaming conventions stretching over weekends. Those are more aimed at playing games than vending, though. Enjoy!


    • We dont have an equivalent of Salute in Ireland, although we do have numerous gaming conventions. Although it is easy to pick up games, miniatures etc at those the emphasis is on gaming.

      It will be interesting to see how Salute differs from the conventions that I am used to. It does seem to be geared quite heavily towards a crowd that want to do some shopping.

      Expect a run down of how I get on in a week or two 🙂
