Figure Score and Fire News

Hi All,

No painting today, I visited with my brother who lives in the town where we went to college. I did manage to find this stuff at Bizarro World.


The magazine was $6, the boxed Knights $12 and the single figures in blister $5 each. The magazine is from July 1980, the box 1996 and the blisters 1997. They also had some army books and a few random Dark Elves and Lizardmen blisters. I would have shown these off on the Oldhammer Facebook page, but there's been a lot of squabbling and abuse of what is Oldhammer and these don't fit the criteria. I think 96/97 puts them squarely in 4th edition WFB.


We got back to the farm from the mountains yesterday. I went into Davis for lunch and saw this behind the farm when I got back. At that time it was 25 acres, as of about 7pm it was passing 1000 acres. It's pretty hazy and smells like smoke. I don't think the house is in any danger, as we are surrounded by tomatoes and there are quite a few orchards nearby that are also well watered.

Back to miniatures, if you're so inclined, I posted a few photos of my "greatest hit" over on the Oldhammer FB page but I can't seem to figure out how to link to it. Maybe it's smoke inhalation. Just kidding.

  1. What a lovely haul, but I do hope that the cloud changes direction!

    1. Hi Michael, it did seem to disperse although the fire is over 7000 acres now.

  2. Nice haul! Bizarro World sounds worth a visit for the name alone. Living in Aus I can sympathise about that column but looking at the terrain between you and it I'd say you've got nothing to worry about.

    1. Hi Millsy, it's a great little store. Boxes full of those old wargaming magazines, games sans box and even a few games in. Also loads of comics, baseball cards and the like. Although they're in a pretty bad drought in the state, the farming around my folks place presents a pretty good fire break.

  3. Barbarian Kings is a great game - I still have my copy. Could work as a campaign engine for running an OldHammer campaign.

    Hope that fire keeps away.

    1. Hi David, my thoughts exactly on Barbarian Kings. I want to do a play by blog and this may be the vehicle to do it.

  4. Lucky you, finding nice vintage miniatures at acceptable prices.

    For the fire, that is bad news, even if you are not in danger, somebody, somewhere has lost things.

    1. Hi Cedric, I am pleased with my finds. Good deals are out there if you keep looking. The fire is more under control today and they have let some people return home. I think only two structures have been destroyed.
