My latest purchase in other scales

Posted by Beano Boy on 03 Sep 2018, 12:41

Yes Dalibor, Games Workshop figures, the whole Set of 80 Mag`s would cost £960.00.
Therefore i have no intention of subscribing! :mrgreen:
I put three of the figures together and for little o`ll me it was kinda awkward I had to shorten some of the pegs to make them fit.

Image


So here they are on my casting up table with some of my soon to be dipped in my colourwash sci- fi propss that cost nothing except the plaster to fill them, :-D because I used plastic packaging for moulds. I`m not a gamer, just an author of very tall tales.


Image

This one has a peg left hand side but nothing was upon the sprue that plugs onto it.
:( I guess there will be extras later on that do.

Image

This one went together A OK!


Image

I had a devil of job getting the right arm to fit on this guy.

:coffee: Righty O, it`s time for a cream cake and hot sweet tea. BB

It is interesting to note that while I was watching Games Workshop stuff on You Tube,the small boxed sets of three figures retail out at £10.00 each. Now that's a crazy price to pay on something containing little content. Figure wise I mean, but I guess the game plan rules also included plus a little book of instructions does give useful information on how to play.

So on my purchase on the 1st issues yes I got 4 paint brushes, along with £40.00 worth of spaced out figures, plus 12 tubs of paint worth £18.00. Which is exceedingly good going as I only spent £7.96. :-D I like getting freebees.

Beat the Drums Softly


Image

A number of loose sprues

Image

These are the last of the warlord games French infantry poses needed for painting. Here it was cheaper to buy boxes of them, rather than the loose sprues.

Image

A small contingent of Prussians. These will join the swelling ranks of Bluchers army.

Image

A few of these are to man La Haye Sainte, to be painted up as The Kings German Legion at Waterloo.
The 95th Rifles are for the sand pit overlooking the farm house. Both regiments had the same uniform and were armed with the Baker Rifle. I also bought lots of single figures too,in the firing, loading, and advancing poses.

:coffee: My Mrs B, smiled at seeing me painting toy soldiers again. BB

A sprue from the new BBC GAMES produced by WARLORD GAMES under Licence.
Not interested in buying the expensive game I bypassed it and bought one sprue to check them out.

Image

They clip together and therefore have no bottom plate. Not interested in buying more of these .

HOWEVER MY SEARCH CARRIED ONWARDS

Image

I bought a few of these games trashed the cardboard kept the Tardis and Daleks.
Only needing one Tardis the others are in the charity shop.


Now the quest was on to obtain more Daleks from the same mould.

Image

I found them and bought the entire stock of Imperial Daleks.
Being greedy i avidly await the rest to arrive in the Mail. BB

Now why didn't they make these in 1.72 too? They're far superior to the Esci/Action Toys/Italeri set.

:cowboy: Pictures taken from E Bay.

This new Tudor Tower I picked up real cheaply, it will replace the one Mrs B,liked so much she asked if it could remain as an ornament on top of our fireplace. Of course it can, `I answered', I`ll fudge another one up from somewhere.

:coffee: So true to my word, here it is.
To avoid scratching stuff these have a very fine soft felt stuck to their bottoms which would be destroyed to utter ruination by my hobby style antics. :sst: so that`s why bb bought this one.

This will be split up as seen in the pictures above and eventually used as Patterns.
A good project of passing a few days with something exciting to do.
:coffee: Like I wrote before, `Spoil others', then spoil yourself.BB
