Welcome to the February dispatch - Lockdown boredom and 1-2-1 modelling.
The lack of physical gaming can force you to make rash decisions, on a recent zoom call we talked about the rise of Citadel Oldhammer and the original Chaos Warriors as I was tempted by some good old fashioned sword and shield gaming - clanking knights for a quick skirmish fight. Before you know it I am watching Excalibur from 1981 and thinking why no one ever made figures for this cult classic?
Ebay is selling the original 80's Chaos Warriors for around £10.00 a figure wow..... There were some nice figures in the range before they went all skulls and tentacles.
Several hours later these chaps are on there way. Great sculpts from Forlorn Hope Games designed by Mark Cobblestone and similar in style to the film....
Not really sure what I am going to do with them, but they will be quick and fun to paint and scratched an itch.
Meanwhile another couple of small packages dropped on the mat, first up a bunch of Tepee's from Irregular miniatures, I planned on basing them on interconnecting bases and am toying with hexagons or octagon bases, so they can be merged to form a larger village.
Meanwhile another bulk order from Warbases. It's only when I look at the numbers bases on mass than I may have gone a little too big. More on the Pony Wars plans in the weeks ahead.
In stark contrast to 6mm, some 1:1construction, having spent 12 months working from home and no club, I thought it was high time I turned the temporary office to become a permanent office/gaming space over 30 years of gaming and finally my own gaming space.
