Here's my loot from today:
- Wargames Foundry Ulfhednars - these are to join my ever-growing Viking Berserker force
- Copplestone Casting Gangsters - these will be used as US Government Agents in a 1930s Lovecraftian project that I've been collecting miniatures for since around January this year.
- Al Mukhtar of the Desert Dogs - the not-Lawrence of Arabia Dogs of War character from Warhammer - no specific use for him but I liked the figure!
- Wood Elf Warhawk Mage - no specific use, but I liked the various parts, he may end up having an operation...
- Cats and Foxes - again, no specific use, I just liked the figures. I guess the cats will languish around my eventual Dark Age town.
- Gollum - a really cheap miniature and I've always liked this one with the integral scenic base. I stripped the dodgy black undercoat from him tonight.
- Oldhammer Troll Slayer - again, liked the model!
- Battle-ready Eowyn - sensibly armoured female miniatures are always good! She may come in handy in my Game of Thrones project - perhaps as someone from Bear Island?
- Random Berserker - nicely sculpted figure, another one for the Berserker force. Not sure on the manufacturer.
- Random Warhammer Empire figures - one has a satchel and is brandishing a sword - he looks like he's running at some pace, so I'll be using him as an NPC/objective marker in game as a messenger that needs to be stopped/rescued and the guy in the fancier outfit with telescope will be involved in a pirate/nautical fantasy RPG my friend is planning.
- Oldhammer Knight - I can't quite remember the name of this guy, but I did a little jump for joy when I found him in a £1 rummage box! I'd watched the same figure for a good while on eBay but left it due to the price. He's miiiine! He might be a character in an RPG or even a hired sword for the upcoming Frostgrave ruleset.
- Oldhammer Dwarf Thief - again, potential PC - I just liked the skulking pose, the crossbow, the patched cloak and his characterful face! He's absolutely tiny though, practically Oldhammer Halfling-sized!
- Witch - I can't remember the shop these were from - the same as the Cats and Foxes and they had quite a large selection of different witches including some on broomsticks! I just liked this figure - she'll probably fit with my townsfolk!
- Some random sci-fi/near-future thug - another "I just liked the figure" purchase - I thought he'd fit in with my Judge Dredd Miniatures Game stuff!
I didn't take many photos of the games on display but here are a select few pictures of my favourites:
|I believe that this is an official Crooked Dice display - really great stuff! My friends were taken with the streams in particular!|
|This is a display game that I've seen pop up online a good few times - a fantastic effort - lovely modelling, painting and the guys hosting the game were even wearing post-apoc costumes!|
|This pirate game was my favourite of the day - I have pirate-related plans on the go (if only I could find the time!) and this was a wonderful bit of inspiration!|
