A month after my last post pimping his give-away, here is a post showing what I've won from Ray. 8 fantastic Victorian era figures. They shall undoubtedly be painted up very soon.
|The slingers have been bumped to the rear - again.|
I've also been having a bit of a clean out as I continue to readjust my toy soldier collections to reflect the periods/genres that I am most interested in. Gone are the 28mm World War Two figures. What has appeared in their place?
|na na na na na na na na... Batman!|
|Bats and Rob, Commissioner Gordon and GCPD and the Joker Gang - all on the cheap.|
Next up, in the same vein as the Batmania, another old comic book favourite:
|The Mega-History might be 20 years old, but it is a very interesting behind the scenes read|
|Dipping the toe in as cheaply as possible.|
|No painting, but I did have to put stickers on a lot of little blocks.|
Going the whole Commands and Colors hog, I also acquired a second hand version of:
|Two games in one, but I'm really only interested in one of them.|
|Even more plastic to glue together|
I've also expanded my Star Wars collection so that I now have decent forces for the rebellion period as well as the Clone Wars. I have to thank Geoff for sourcing these extra figures for me:
|The Star Wars cabinet - rebellion and X-Wing on the top shelf and Clone Wars below|
I've also ordered a 15mm WWI Russian army from Lancashire Games, and the commission money from the completed Huguenots is ear-marked for Austro-Hungarians. I have scenery and Perry figures on the way for Ronin as well. All in all plenty going on - just not much gaming, painting or blogging. Hopefully that changes today.
