We loaded the six boxes, fairly heavy too, into the motor and then back onto the A45 for the jaunt to Nottingham. Which we found quite easily by comparison. Luckily General Charles had been to the figure makers before. It's in an industrial unit complex just to the rear of the old Raleigh bikes factory in Lenton. This factory is now also home to a well known wargames figure manufacturer. In fact the place we delivered to is also pretty famous (NOT GW)
Lenton Business Centre Reception (there's a big clue!)
The staff were really nice and helpful and gave us a guided tour of their products including the new Osprey medieval skirmish rules. Which, at £12, are a bargain. Full of lovely Osprey plates of various medieval soldiers, knights and what-have-you. Also contains some army lists for the small forces you will need to have a game.
To be honest I was entranced by the volume of lovely figures they had in the unit. So much so that I bought some Pulp figures off them. After a drink and chat we set off back to Brum without getting lost. On the way back we had an in-depth discussion on the Battle of Naseby and why the 'Last Stand' of Rupert's Blew Coats didn't, couldn't, have happened. To find out why you'll have to wait for General Charles's new book.
All in all a grand day out!
