That da**ed collecting bug... Oldhammer eat your heart out...


Well, with a Kickstarter or two under my belt it was time to collate the eBay finds of the last few months... some a little older that a US friend had sent over but all good stuff to add to the lead mountain... lots of Minifigs Mythical Earth and Sword & Sorcery... on the joy!

Some Citadel AD&D minis... unfortunately they'd had their slottas taken off but still nice to find. Two versions disappeared to a friend in America to complete his collection. I'll find them again one day!


Lovely miscellany of old Citadel DA, Grenadier AD&D and early Ral Partha elves.


A handful of Minifigs repairs... so many broken ones appear that I thought it was type to get the drill out.


Vulcan Miniatures... hopefully from 'The Court of Fools' as per the old ad below. Early Bob Naismith sculpts.



Ackland Miniatures bagged Citadel Spacefarers 54mm pieces... one more still to get in the baggie though. Tony said the giant robot sentinel in the Spacefarers 25mm range was originally destined for these...


This was an interesting 'bid on a whim' - turns out to be a Michael Perry early large scale sculpt, now believed to be related to RAF apprentices - groundcrew - RAF Halton (info C/O Chaz Elliott who painted one back in the day).




More Minifigs...


An Asgard Snark Dragon and the old McEwan bag header...


More Minifigs!


Three of the 4 Dragontooth Personalities I was missing...




Dragontooth Crocodile Giant... accompanied by a hand-sculpted weapon by a friend, Michael Booker... thank you!



More Minifigs along with a lone Garrison S&S demon...


Finally a Nick Bibby Citadel Chaos Demon...

That's it for now... as if it wasn't enough... who needs to pay the mortgage! Any comments or similar lots to get rid of please give me a shout on;

The rise of the Khamaí!

 

A Kickstarter to raise funds for the expansion of those little chameleon-like devils... sculpted by John Robertson for The Little Soldier Company, there are two new sets forthcoming, a command and a beast handler pack...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1896378744/the-rise-of-the-khamai



The Command Pack...


The Beast Handler and his two hounds...


Please back it if you can or give it a bit of a push if you can't. Every little helps and it'll also hopefully help more miniatures to be commissioned at some point for various ranges...

Looking for TTG Reaper rules and Attack of the Fungoid Trolls...


A long time ago, well, around 1978, in a galaxy not so far from Nottingham, two young men by the name of Richard Halliwell and Richard Priestley penned a set of rules for tabletop gaming... it was published by Tabletop Games and set the world by storm... sort of. Only Mr Halliwell's name appeared on the front of the first edition... apparently they had run out of Letraset! The first edition was ringbound, followed later by the second edition which featured both names on the front... Rick Priestley had finally arrived! Both versions were illustrated by the wonderful Tony Ackland and Tony Yates.

Well, I'm after the original sets of rules and the later expansion, Attack of the fungoid Trolls (penned by both Richard Halliwell and Bryan Ansell)... I can offer cold, hard cash or trade stuff... email me and let me know!

My two sets... slight difference in size...

The short supplement included a separate sheet of counters...
