Or at least I was a while back! Ian from The Blog With No Name fame had a contest running back in April based on a Hobbit styled birthday giveaway. And it seems that I won the 20 GBP prize that I could spent as I wanted! It was quite nice of Ian to do this, and he even trusted me that I would spend it on miniatures as he just sent me the money via paypal almost immediately!
So with that faith in hand, I immediately went about and figured out what was the best thing to spend this ill-gotten loot on! The thing with it is that really I am not in need of any more gaming models, so I started to look at more niche type models that could make for some nice display pieces! This is where the search got a bit deep, and I ended up with some models from Kabuki.
Models that I selected were from the individual and pin-up range. 2 Sci-fi remakes of historical generals ( can you guess who they are? :P ), and a pin up of a female soldier. Seems she has been working up quite a sweat while taking out some alien infestation!
The Sci-fi guys are made of resin, and the pin up of metal. But I have to say that the pin up model is small! Much smaller than I suspected it to be as can be seen below ( and I will do a proper review of them later one! ).
I really cannot wait to work on these models. I have an idea for Napoleon, but the rest I am unsure of still.
Now some might wonder why it has taken me so long to post up about this contest that happened way back in April?!?!? Simple answer.. simple delays! I had ordered them from Wayland Games almost immediately after finding out that I won. They were "supposedly" in stock at the time, but this was when WG were still figuring out their stock levels system on their site. So it was more of a gamble as to if it really was in stock or not. It came into stock 2 more times over the last 2 months though, both times not sent out to me though which was strange, but in the end I have received them and that is all that matters!
So expect a more proper review of them in the near future and also any ideas on how to base them up can be put on in below!
Thanks again to Ian from The Blog With No Name fame!
