Gringo40's have finally managed a Blog update after a long while with another just Prior to CRISIS.
Talking of which pre-orders are still being taken up to next Wednesday. The final update will relate to availability of our Tonkin 1885 boats and other show specials for the show on 3/11/2018
The name of the show run by the erstwhile Tin Soldiers of Antwerp is perfect for all sorts of punning headlines; however, this year it’s a little nearer to the mark.
Crisis 2018 is on Saturday, November 3rd, and I will be there as usual in the second hall, in my regular spot by the west wall. As always for any show, we welcome advance orders – in fact they’ve already been coming in. You can either place an order and pay in advance using the collect in person option on the website, or just drop us an email with a list and pay on the day. And if you read on, you’ll see that it’s especially important this year if there’s anything specific you’d like to get from us.
Apart from a couple of the larger shows when we hire a van, I generally travel to shows in my trusty people carrier, complete with roofbox for extra storage space – this includes the drive to Antwerp for Crisis. This year however there seems to be a rush on cross-channel travel, and I’ve been unable to secure a place for a ‘high car’, which means no roof box. So why, dear reader, should you care ? Because it means I’ll have to leave behind a not-insignificant amount of stock because of the reduction in space. Exactly what that will be isn’t yet clear, and may not be until I try loading the car, but I’ve already determined that I won’t be able to bring any 10mm or 15mm SF buildings as they take up quite a bit of room; I’ll probably also have to drop a couple of boxes of starter packs and army packs. With this in mind, the stock list for Crisis is likely to be along the lines of:
Celtos – Decent stock of all individual figures, small unit packs and medium army packs; no large army packs
Aeronef/Imperial Skies – All of the most popular fleet packs (the major powers) but possibly not the smaller nations; a good selection of individual capital ships in blisters; rulebooks and accessories for Imperial Skies; no grand fleet packs or starter packs
Small Scale Scenery – the full range of all models
Spaceships – full range of fleet packs; no individual models
Hammer’s Slammers – rulebooks; the full range of 15mm models; a selection of 6mm detachment packs and the more recent 6mm Slammers releases as individual models; possibly some 15mm detachment packs (depending on space)
15mm SF – full range of 15mm vehicles, figure packs and accessories; no buildings
6mm SF – full range of army packs, company packs and building packs; no individual models
Great War Belgians – full range of figures
Magpie Miniatures – individual figures and packs
Squadron Commander – full range of blisters packs; no individual models or starter packs

If you would like to pre-order anything from these ranges (or indeed any of the other products we manufacture or distribute), to collect at either show, we have set up ‘Collect at Fiasco / Crisis’ as a ‘free postage’ option to use when you check out.
The new Albedo Miniatures in particular are proving very popular, so although we will have a good stock of them with us we would advise pre-ordering to avoid disappointment. The Albedo Miniatures game is currently live on Kick Starter and we will be running participation games at both shows.
Sally 4th is the official show stockist for Lucid Eye. We will have their complete product range with us.
Ann & I look forward to seeing you at the show.
