Another Darkest Africa Horde

My leadpile has now reached the point of no return and will very shortly collapse through the floor of the garage in somesort of event horizon critical mass implosion. To speed this along, I've just added another (yes, another) army to my, as yet untouched, mountain of Darkest Africa stuff. This has been a long term interest of mine which I have yet to get even anywhere near beginning.

Anyway, I followed one of those evil Foundry emails, the ones that offer 30% or 50% off books in the hope you'll buy some overpriced bits of lead. After a bit of a fruitless search around I wandered off to the Darkest Africa bit, on the way out of the annoying Foundry website. At this point, I spotted that the Belgian 'Horde' was reduced to a price which made each figure a little over £1 each.

This didn't seem too bad so I've gone and ordered one to add to the handful of Belgian Askaris that I already have. This means I now have about eight potential armies for an In the Heart of Africa campaign at some point in the indeterminate future, which is absolutely bonkers but not unusual for me. No one else at the club seems interested in this, so it'll probably be a solo effort as well.

Hey ho!


  1. As soon as I saw the heading 50% off I deleted that Foundary e-mail immediately so that I didn't succumb to the temptation!!!

  2. That's where I went wrong :O(

    ...but hey ho!

  3. You're a bad man! After reading this, I went straight to the Foundry website, found the Belgian deal, put it in my basket and was at the checkout before sanity kicked in!!

  4. I have a bit of a reputation at the club for this sort of thing...
