|This is what twenty random sprues look like. Awesome.|
Then you have the big players. Not GW big, but second tier big. Folks like Mantic. They recently had one of their wacky sales; for twenty five pounds you got twenty random sprues and a messenger bag. That is a heck of a deal in my book.
I ended up getting 77 models for that 25 quid. I actually got a pretty good start on an undead army as well as a good number of elves. In the Sci/Fi line I am sitting pretty on some Orx, if I choose to expand them. There are some odds and ends in there as well, dwarves, forge fathers, a couple of warmachines with crew. As an extra bonus they threw in a Veer-myn Night-Crawler, one of their new models.
|This un-prepossessing box hold limitless possibilities. It's almost a shame to open it. Nah. I couldn't wait.|
|This will be perfect for rules and dice.|
|This thing weighs a couple pounds. It's solid resin.|
|The back side. The house has nice detail with very little clean up necessary.|
|Eight of these will really help me dress up a table in a hurry.|
|I really like the material this is made of. I'll need a few more of these.|
So, in closing, what I'm really happy about is that I'm doing business with people who have sales and appreciate my business. It's a refreshing change from GW, whose idea of a price change is always up. There are a lot of small companies out there, if you pay attention you can often get some really nice deals.
