Games Workshop Back in the Game? Old world returning?

Hi Chaps,

Well I can't complain. I have been lucky enough to have a spare few quid to buy 3 boxes of figures to make a proxy Imperial army for Warhammer and what happens? The day after the last box arrives Games Workshop reveal that they are bringing back the Old World as a separate game system!!

Makes me think that despite waiting a couple of years I was too hasty! So I will send Warlord Games Landsknechts over to my son in Barcelona and keep a box of Perry Mercenaries and Light cavalry in my stash... I had no intention of starting a Wars of the Roses army so if anyone has any GW Imperial Guard (the human looking guys right?) kicking about I would be up for a trade...

Anyway this is what I have been working on the last week or so...

To a certain extent all are a bit of a work in progress as they need a matt varnish and a few things added... the Dwarf flag needs some runes bases need completing. Games Workshop have really put a spanner in the works for what I had planned to do but despite throwing almost £60 at it I am not even cross that the project is now on hold. 

So probably back to the Russians unless I can get hold of some Imperial Guard to mess around with. I don't play 40K and the starter box has no appeal for me so I have no idea what they will be used for. I really must see if I can take some pics of my figures as they are on my shelves...

Keep blogging Guys-I feed off your ideas!

Still Alive and kicking (well painting)

Many Apologies Chaps,

My absence can be explained by the usual life hassles working a 6 day week usually over the weekends... we have all had it. Anyway I have still been painting but still not gaming. I had considered staring a new blog as I pretty much only bother with 28mm due to my aging eyes but thought I would keep updating this until I have worked out which platform to use.

I sincerely hope that you have all been keeping well, that you are happy and that you are gaming.

I insanely purchased the winter German boc from Warlord then the Grenadier box which then led to a few other metal and 3d printed stuff... no idea if they will ever see a gaming table.

Oh there were some Russians purchased as well as zombies just a distraction. Finally two boxes of Perry Wars of the Roses and a box of Landsknechts from Warlord as well as a few wizards. 

So Chaps, plenty to paint but very little time to paint it all in... saving them for my retirement possibly.

What have you all been up to? I have missed you.
