sorry again for the lack of posting. I was busy with everything else last week, but my mojo is slowly returning and I am working on the moderns.
Among other things, I've been visiting London (funny how traditional this became as I was boasting I would never go to London some years ago!) over weekend. Main purpose of the trip was to attend Fortress Study Group Member's day. I have been a member for three weeks or so and whole trip was planned last minute as I figured I might as well go. I will never forgive myself, but I've missed a chance to visit North East again and, less importantly, I "just" missed yet another Salute.
I also visited two games shops (Orcs Nest and Dark Sphere). I was thinking about picking up a box of plastic Dark Age Warriors and maybe SAGA rules. I have factions all planned and everything. In the end, I decided against it and I will rather focus on what I have. In the end, I only bought a bottle of white primer. I found out games shops don't really work on my wish to buy anything, for some reason. I think the miniatures just aren't what I imagine them to be on the internet!
Thus, this was the only Saga I bought:
They also had some great looking WW2 reprints. I looked at the Tips for Home Guard, which was pretty fantastic, but not exactly what I was after. I had high hopes for "German plans for invasion of England" but it turns out the original name of the text would actually be translated something like "England's Geostrategic report" or something along those lines. It was mostly about the geography and urbanisation of various parts of Britain. I didn't look at the others, but I Commando one is probably quite interesting.
I went to a poundland on one of the days, but as I was catching last minutes, I only visited one of the two closely together (Killburn High Road station, turn right at the exit and walk a bit). I returned on the last day, went to the second shop and behold:
Yes, they are the lousy police cars, but not like those I bought in the past. They are all pickups and as such good enough (given the price) to be transformed into technicals for my rebels! Amazing! I was hoping I would find suitable vehicles somewhere, and those were really gifted by the gods. I only picked one box, two machine gun armed and one with some sort of a gun should be enough.
They also had some speedy kind, but I have no use for those, as I already have the "ordinary" patrol cars of the same "quality".
This is it for now, but I am highly motivated and should be tackling my lead pile in near future!
Thanks for looking,
