The Australian $ does OK against the pound which feeds my addiction. Fortunately postage from the UK hasn't gone mental like packets from the US. This means every couple of weeks I hit Ebay.uk and rustle up some old lead. I am not looking for rarity or bargains as such, instead I look for models that I will enjoy painting.
As I get older I find less and less appeal in wargamming. I find collecting and painting aspects of the hobby more attractive. Painting keeps me sane, its my Zen, my escape. And its the models from the 80s that hold the greatest appeal. The 80s saw Jes Goodwin, the Perry twins and others put out lush models that paint up a treat. Here's the last weeks output:
|Jes Goodwin sculpts - Eternal Champion series.|
|Perry Brothers - Mounted Gimli - Lord of the Rings 80s series.|
|Orcs - probably Kev Adam's sculpt along with a modern Reaper barbarian with side boob.|
|Eternal Champion, Lone Wolf town guard and Citadel female fighter.|
