Warlord Plastics

I spotted a couple of good deals on Warlord Games 28mm boxed Roman and Celts over at North Star today. Apparently, they have a few crushed boxes going for £10 instead of £17, which looks like a pretty good deal:

I don't like the Celts much but the Romans look good, although I'm not sure what I'm going to use them for other than Warhammer Ancient Battles. I had no intention of doing 28mm WAB Ancients, as my leadpile is mainly populated with Shieldwall stuff but when I saw these I thought it was too good an opportunity to miss.

I've ordered a couple of boxes of the legionaries and one of the veterans, so I hope they haven't run out. I'll inevitably have to get a load more but, for the moment, it's very good value for money.

Unfortunately, I dug deeper and found the Pike and Shotte starter armies for £50. I quite like the idea of doing the English Civil War in 28mm, having had a go before using Redoubt figures, although they ended up on ebay when I needed to raise some funds for other things.

If I did get a Pike and Shotte starter army I could use it for 1644 or Warhammer English Civil War, both of which I have in the rules library. It would be a good way to set out on my own and do something that I have wanted to do for a while.
