So, as my avatar suggests, I live in the land of poles. Normally this is great as it's cheap to live and I have a steady income well over the national average as a native teacher of English. However, this also sucks donkey testicles because all of my wargames stuff is back in England and during a recent visit there I somehow got dragged back into the hobby after a 5 year hiatus.
Now, I've been selling old stuff on the wonderful world of ebay (mostly my old LOTR models and some blood bowl stuff) to fund a fresh start over here. So last week I put in an order with my local (local in England anyway) games store and am now eagerly anticipating the arrival of:
As well as this small order to start my paint collection, I also have a few Vallejo paints on order from another store and have bought a few still in blister models from ebay including a Mordheim Vampire, one of the old eldar avatars and the elf mage from IoB. Oh - and resin bases ;)
The idea is to model and paint these guys up trying out new techniques along the way and then maybe start an army of something I like the look of, or just get my Ogre's, Nids or BA's sent over to finish off and get a few games in.
If I'm missing anything from my shopping list let me know :D
Edit: Apologies for not having any pics of actual figures, the waiting is akin to christmas as a 5 year old and I need to feel like I'm doing something proactive. I'll update with pics of the unboxing and cleaning up of the finecast models - It'll be my first foray into the world of finecast and I'm hoping it doesn't all go tits-up on me. In fact speaking of finecast problems, I haven't ordered any greenstuff... bollocks.
Edit 2: My figures actually had an attempted delivery on Tuesday, BUT the Polish post is a bit shit and they never even take packages with them on rounds and then claim that you didn't answer the door when they tried to deliver so you have to go and pick it up. Work appears to have gotten in the way of that so far but finally. Finally tomorrow morning I'll be able to pick them up :D
