Sa-loot

Ok. Time to fess up.

That red bag was well packed with lead :D (barring some plastics and a rulebook). The Foundry bag was, however, light as a feather, for reasons which will become apparent later, despite being pretty much full.

So here's what I bought - picture captions will explain all. Just don't tell the wife :D Individual reviews to follow as and when things get used/painted etc.

Anything with a * before it wasn't on the original shopping plan....

SAGA Age of the Wolf campaign setting

GB Romano-British plastics.
Bad Squiddo Catherine the Great.
* Brother Vinni 4 pack of shield maidens
* Footsore Dark Ages Christian Priests

A freebie from Mr. Douglas (thanks,
mate) who insisted on feeding both my elf
and chocolate habits.

Elite Wargames and Models female Napoleonic characters
Offensive Miniatures 12 x 95th Rifles
* Eagle Figures 12 x Spanish Guerrillas
* Eagle Figures 24 x Spanish infantry

(Oops)
* Foundry 24 x Perry-sculped British flank company
* Foundry 8 x British light infantry command
* Foundry 9 x British Dragoons

Tablescape's lovely Peninsular buildings - these are ridiculously light
but robust, I WILL be buying more.

Tablescape's walls. (The Spanish scenery bits were all in
the Foundry bag and weigh next to nothing!)

The Warbases order - you can't go to a show without one!
50mm rounds, 15mm rounds (for the Royal Armouries game)
Sharp Practice wagon set
1p movement trays + magnets (need more!)
Show freebie figure and casualty tracler 

Alban Miniatures 95th Rifles (bought s/h before Salute,
unavailable any more as the business shut down this past January!)
Harper character figure is bottom left, Sharpe third from right top row.

Size/build comparison of the Alban and Offensive 95th - the latter
on the left are perhaps a little less slim, but not enough to be much
of an issue.
Pretty decent, and of a size with both the Foundry and the Eagle.
The Foundry are a bit chunkier but as they won't be based together,
it won't matter that much.

  1. Could it be you have a Sharpe Practice 2 project in the works? ;) Nice haul!

  3. Looks like you are getting yourself well prepared for SPv2 Mike.

    I will have to check the website for the Eagle and Offensive miniature figures and those buildings look just the ticket.

  5. I have a lot of time for Tablescape - been using some of their sci-fi stuff for years, it's doing fine. Good mix of robust and ready to go at the right price!
