Transport Models Preston

Hi Chaps,

This weekend has gone quickly but it has been a bit of a delight on the hobby front. My local model shop, Transport models of Preston are having a sale with 25%  off everything. Naturally I was impressed and bought the beginnings of a Sigmar Bretonnioan army in the form of two Fireforge boxes of European medieval types.


Previously I have put together hundreds of plastic 28mm and 20mm figures but for some reason these little b#####ds just did not co operate. The fault is all mine...it could have been my cheap superglue or just my poor performance but assembling these 36 figures took longer and was much more frustrating than I imagined. Parts flew off never to be seen again and the glue refused to join anything other than my own flesh and then it was to everything!

Oh well there are lessons to be learned from todays experience but I have not processed what just yet. I did buy a spray tin of Humbrol German red brown to undercoat with so this is my first experiment with anything other than black or white.

The last hobby problem I face is a strange one! My cabinets are full! What to do? I certainly wont be purchasing any cabinets soon as they tend to be expensive so it is either storage or ebay for the less used/loved figures....now I just need Fireforge to release the promised Bretonnian mounted knights and this army (with a few bits I already have) will be complete.

I do hope you have all had a good weekend? If you have any tips on building a gaming PC I would appreciate it as I am trying to get one for my son but my kidney money went to Games Workshop already!

Keep blogging guys I need your adventures to read whilst at work.

  2. I know what you mean. A set of Zulu figures took a lot of time and profanity before I got them assembled. Your collection looks good.

  3. A good blog, have been trawling through it with great interest :) Re. your full cabinets, would KR multi cases be any help? Most of my stuff is in them until builders are done, but then again you'd still need somewhere to stash them!

    1. Thanks Ragsta, I will have a look at those cabinets. A lot of 40K people refer on their websites to being plastic addicts. I think a lot of us were at that stage 20 years ago with white metal and resin!

  4. I know what you mean. A set of Zulu figures took a lot of time and profanity before.
