New year, new toys?

Happy new year, one and all!

I hope you've had a healthier Christmas than poor muggins here. Nothing properly serious (thank God!), but some viral thingummy that has reduced me to dabbing ineffectually at the rivers of snot because I daren't blow my nose in case I get another fifteen minute coughing fit. Shitty, but not long term and not serious. As someone who is generally in robust health, it's come as a bit of a shock and knocked me a bit off kilter. No painting, no gaming, just being short-tempered with my nearest and dearest. I have not been jolly!

Anyway, whingeing over - show us the lead! There are two temptations for the post-festive wallet that caught my eye over the last couple of days, both eminently suitable for oldhammer-style gaming. First, the old Asgard barbarians are back in production through Alternative Armies, and at a tasty 20% discount until 7th January.

Click >here< to go to their blog/store for more details and a nicely painted sample or two. These sculpts rampaged across many a tabletop back in the 80s and look like they'd make luvverly chaos thugs.

The other is an Indigogo campaign being run by Michael Schlossarczyk from Crooked Claw miniatures; new Kev Adams sculpts of vicious smirking goblins and their warmachines. It only needs fifteen quid more to reach its goal, so why not help a brother out? I'm going to wait for the last Christmas bill to come through, then I'll probably go in for the wolf-rider pack at £25. Nice!

Happy new year once again,


  1. Happy new year Rab and thanks a lpot for the link. I've been meaning to get them for a long time and here was just the perfect occasion since the special price pays the PnP, 19,5£ for 12 gorgeous Jes Goodwin Asgard barbarians, it's a killer!
