It's been busy here with school winding down and activities picking up. I've had a mild reprieve here since we have a night game for my son's flag football team tonight. I hope you all had a Happy Easter, ours was quite pleasant.
First order of business, since I tend to wander in these posts, is to welcome new follower Paul Waechter. I don't see a blog for you Paul. If you have one, or more, please let me know so I can link it here and follow you back. Welcome aboard.*** Paul is another blogger from Down Underer (Sorry, I love Flight of the Conchords) you can find some great painted stuff for Saga and Flames of War at his blog Dog of War.***
Now on to the unboxing. First up are the Undead figures I ordered from Taiwan with excellent service from Always Model. I think I actually ordered through his ebay store.
(I'm getting back int the practice of using the page break to display more posts on the page. Nothing unsafe to follow.)
See. Would I lie?
I promised you better pictures of them so here they are. These fellows are very heavily clothed and armored and so at times do not look particularly skeletal. As Paul of Paul's Bods showed, they can easily be painted up as conventional humans. I think only one of the horse poses would be difficult to use as a live horse.
Next are the Mongol etc forces I ordered from Hobby Bunker to stand in for Mangu in the Talomir Tales campaign.
Aside from them holding my entire order for one thing and then shipping it with the Italeri Mongols as a substitute I really have no complaints. I suppose the lesson learned might be to fire off an email quicker, but I don't like to hound people.
The flash on the Orion figures, especially the Cumans, is a real shame as they are all nice sculpts. I cut a bunch of these off the sprue and trimmed them up for use in my Talomir battle which will be reported shortly.
We may even get in some more games this weekend. Stay tuned.
