Well, it's almost that time again so, from both Arya and myself, here's wishing you all a very seriously Merry Christmas!
May 2021 be the start of a much improved decade!
Well, I was sorting out cupboards and came across a bunch of my old magazines... along with the realisation that I'm missing loads... grrrr. I don't think I have any from 1976 and am missing a bunch from 1977... if you have any to trade please let me know!
These are the only pics I could find off the old t'internet...
Well, it's been a long time coming but I've finally launched the dwarf bar room brawl Kickstarter...
Well, I managed to pick up a copy of game at last... there were actually two copies up on evil bay, I put an offer in that was accepted and the other hit £28. Plus postage of course... I was charged £8.75 but it was sent second class signed for at £4.10... I await a response from the seller! Very pleased to have it though. The box was a little the worse for wear however the components are all fine. The miniatures are, as expected, very basically painted but old school has no better love than poorly painted figs...

Well, some new releases in the run up to the festive season... hopefully the New Year will let us turn a corner of this rather Nurglesque 2020!
The Dead God, eater of souls and the blood of children... sculpted by Kev Adams with the throne sculpted by Philip Page. Cast in resin for a change.
Well, I seem to have caught an old school bug again following on from my last post of the ME Goblins... this is my first attempt at tartan and will possibly be my last... I've tried to make him look slightly more 'menacing' than the sculpt appears...

Well, back in the dawn of time... around July 1973 we think (I had thought 1972 but appear to be out by a year...), Minifigs released the start of possibly the earliest fantasy range for wargamers - Middle Earth of course. If you know of any earlier dates for them please comment below or email me. Still trying to find out how early the American Jack Scruby fantasy range was... Dick Higgs was the designer and he sculpted in solder... giving reason to the angular quality of their sculpts - see him in action here.
