Hi again; buy my stuff!

With the dreaded OFSTED apparently due any moment (I think the Headteacher has been reading the entrails of goats or something), I've not had the calmest start to the new school year. I've been managing to scratch my geeking itch by planning what to concentrate on for the next year or so and have reduced it to three projects and a determination to actually play some games.

  1. Gladiators - Blood on the Sands is already a fantastic game and the slight playtest tweaks that are being put in place are bringing up to the level of an enduring classic. It really is that good! So, I need to paint some gladiators and finish off the arena for them to battle in.
  2. Fantasy football - I love Bloodbowl and Elfball and have two or three teams that are nearly complete. While this will really be a filler activity (I can play with what I have painted), I want to get the full set of my Chaos Allstars painted, along with associated Star Players, reroll counters etc.
  3. Oldhammer - I've always preferred the earlier style of miniatures that Citadel produced, having got interested gaming about a year or so before Fourth Ed. was released. During the holidays I picked up a nearly mint hardback copy of 3rd Ed in a charity shop for £6 - bargain! My plan is to use it as the vehicle to continue my "fantastic chivalry" project. This will be the major project by a long way over the other two.
In order to facilitate my ebay extravagances (we all know it will happen!) as I pick up classic figures, I'm selling stuff I don't use. I'll try and keep the sales page on here up to date, but I'll be concentrating on my sales thread on the LAF, so check there for updates. Anything that doesn't sell in the next few weeks will be transferred here as an ongoing thing.

Buy my stuff, you know you want to :)


  1. 3rd Ed is the golden age of warhammer! We have to make time for you to come over and join me in the loft to dig out my books! I have ravening hordes up there (the book of all the army list).

  2. Awesome! I have just done a swap to get hold of the Warhammer Armies book that goes with 3rd Ed. Wasn't Ravening Hordes 2nd? Would be very cool, just the same. The cover alone is brilliant :)

    Why not check out http://www.oldhammer.org.uk/ for some 3rd edition enthusiasts. Just don't read the Pony Wars thread, it goes a little... off piste. And serious!

    1. You're right, it is the Warhammer Armies book (I googled the cover and that's the one I have).

      I know that I also have Siege and both the Realm of Chaos books. I would seriously love to play a Chaos warband campaign.


    2. Siege and BOTH RoC books? Sweeeeeet! That's about £150 worth of old paper! I only have the *ahem* free electronic versions ;)

      I'd love to do a RoC campaign. Bagsy Khorne or Tzeentch.

    3. Khorne is power-game central! I like Nurgle or Tzeentch, but would do Slaanesh too.

      We should ge Dan and Malc involved and do a 4 way narrative campaign with all 4 gods represented!
