Praise for Games Workshop! What next?

I recently did the middle aged angry old man thing and I wrote a strongly worded letter to the CEO of Games Workshop (who I believe was actually a chick!). Anyway I like to think that the men in suits listened to my gripes (sorry sage business advice) because they seem to have produced something that actually seems value for money.

Startling isn't it?

So now you have all picked yourselves up off the floor take a peek at this boxed set.

The figures within are of a mix, some are standard Space Marines and yet there are a fair few that could be used in Future Wars type apocalypse types and for the money there is a lot of painting to be done. At £62.00 it is a whopping investment but there are two skirmish forces and if like me you own an ancient rule set or two it's happy further outlay needed.

Maybe these figures will be OK for Beyond the gates of Antares? Either way it is a cheap GW alternative to The Hobbit.

Camera is on it's way (eventually) so I will have lots of pictures to post...mostly of WW2 stuff.

Keep blogging Chaps you keep me sane and inspired. (Unless your name is Legatus in which case I am jealous-have you seen his ex girlfriends?). Dammit.


  1. Even so I'm not fond of the new cultist figures, but it is much better value for money then the Hobbit set.

  2. Your right and its got some variety. GW do have the quality but their prices are sometimes eye watering.

  3. The basic sets aren't bad value for the money. What gets me is then having to get codexes for your chosen army and then having your armies become obsolete every 3 yrs when the latest version comes out

  4. Not a chick.. :o)
