I am having a sleepless night (damn insomnia) but I have been gifted with a clear sky and a wonderful view of the moon and stars. There is just a sliver of a waning crescent moon, and the most amazing earthshine I have ever seen.
haha i just printed off some mini posters for my terrain and one was that gang war cover! for some reason the only mags i kept from back then is the Necromunda white dwarf with the goliath on it and a bunch of 2000ad and heavy metal mags.
Looking at the new incredibly expensive price hikes... we are getting close to ebay prices on classic games ive always wanted...
Mordheim. 300 on ebay doesnt sound so bad anymore compared to warcry. and i would actually get the game id want and not wish i had bought... warbands are 100 bucks but warcry are 42 and half the model count.
I'd had similar thoughts about prices. You can easily pay something like £50-100 for a box of Rogue Trader plastics (beakkies, orks, squats, etc) but given that's generally 30+ models it's not really any more per model - and maybe less - than buying current range models.
Mind you, one of the good things about the old games, is that GW did actually make pdf printable copies of them FREE, which means printing and binding comes to ... not that much. Though if you mean the boxed set, well. Those corners and windows are almost worth their weight in bills, alone. They combine excellently with foamcore....
I put a cheeky early bid on an original box of Necromunda Delaques and got the email saying I'd won them yesterday
I was havering about buying a box of N18 ones and a box of Enforcers and had a minor revelation - for less than the price of a box of each of the new I can buy the models I've wanted for years instead
With a couple of Juves and a couple more gangers I can make it an entirely functional and respectable gang... it's not going to be a case of collecting every original sculpt again. No siree. Not going fall for that one. Like with the Van Saar, once was enough... then I did the Escher too of course...
...Oh no, what have I done
...I'm almost certainly going to be hunting the uncrossed guys below
I think my wife found me a line on a local sale for ridiculously cheap of the original box terrain [!], and seven Spyrers [!]. Table density AND painting up more Spyrers? Looks like I will be spending some money that I should be saving, come Thursday.
