Laserburn was one of the first games I played, and after nearly 40 years I managed to find one of my painted miniatures.

The Leichter Kampfwagen II (LK-II) was a German light tank developed towards the end of World War 1. Two prototypes were built by June 1918, but no more were completed before the war ended. The design lived on, illegally exported to Sweden as the M/21-29, one remained in Swedish service until 1938.
There were two weapon options, one armed with an MG08/15, the other with a 57mm Maxim-Nordenfelt gun.
The Empress kit comprises four resin mouldings and a bag of white metal pieces (two gun options and the rear step). I think it was originally sold by Mark Copplestone.

Anvil Industries have recently released a number of 3D printed variants of a US Pickup Truck.
This is the Standard Pickup with closed cab.
The "kit" is in five parts, the body and four wheels. Cleverly, the front axles have a ball and socket connection, so you can set the wheels as if the vehicle was turning.
Pandyman Entertainment have recently released a World War One trench warfare game, including a boxed starter set.
This is a 28mm scale small scale skirmish set that allows the recreation of the disparate trench raids which attempted to break the stalemate of the Western Front.
More on the rules once I have read them.
For the first time in a while, I went to Warfare. For reasons as baroque as why the SELWG show is in the Lee Valley, Warfare was in Farnborough (okay 1.5 miles from the nearest railway station according to the web site, though whether that was as the crow flies or including going way past it to get to the entrance I do not know).
SELWG does lay on a bus service to and from the station, but for Warfare it was a bit of a slog out there.
There was a lot more of the companies I buy from at SELWG, but there were some surprising no-shows, which lead to some rearranging of tables that made finding some of the traders more difficult as they were not were they were on the map
I did end up buying a number of sets of rules, so in no particular order.
Seven Days to the Rhine, Cold War rules for the 'eighties. Though designed for 15mm, I am looking at either 10mm or 6mm.
From Pandyman I bought a number of their modern emergency service figures including Riot Police.
And two armoured Paramedics.
