Got here at last!


We finally arrived at the in-laws on Saturday after another thirteen and a half hour journey, most of which I'd rather not dwell upon. Anyway, we're now reunited with the offspring who, as part of the reward for beign abandoned in France with their grandparents, have now received some new additions to their Warhammer collections. The eldest got a box of 40K Space Marine Assault Terminators while the middle one got some Fantasy Black Orcs.

I have little interest in anything related to Warhammer Fantasy Battles or 40K to be honest, as I can't stand the IGOUGO mechanisms, the cartoonish sculpts, the over the top gore and the ridiculous price tag of most of the GW stuff. However, I have been persuaded by the number one son to get a box of Tau to oppose his Crimson Fist space marines, so have splashed out on a box of Fire Warriors as the cheapest option. I'm not planning to get anything more than that, as I'd rather spend my hard earned cash on something historical!

  2. I'm finding the distinction between 'not planning' and actually 'not buying' tends to get a little blurred these days; I'm sure you will remain resolute. ;)

  3. I suppose it had to happen sooner or later :O(
