Well it has been a busy week with solicitors etc. so the important stuff like my hobby has suffered time wise though the real casualty has been my bank balance.
I have won a couple of auctions for Space Hulk (first edition) and so I naturally needed some figures and then one thing led to another. I had to visit Games Workshop Preston for some red paint and it seems that they have adopted the Foundry 3 shade system with an added wash for each colour? Anyway I cannot wait to try them out.
Whilst I was in the shop I purchased some "Cultist" figures which were actually reasonable at £6 for five, these will fit any future/post apocolypse type of game and are a useful little bunch. Next up was a treat to self for a crap week of legal stuff (actually a crap 6 years). One of my fleabay purchases was a cannon and two crew so this chap will fit the bill as master gunner. I actually have an earlier version of him in metal bought for me by my wife....anyway he was £9 which is damned expensive. Games Workshop can do a decent price (re the Cultists) so why this much for one figure? Anyway like a sucker I bought him.
Keep blogging Chaps, when the rain stops I will post some pictures of the ever growing horde of Space Marine stuff that seems to teleport itself onto my painting station!
Is this addictive?
