And I have returned with treasures undreamed of by mortal man.
Or, a load of slightly ropy old plastic and metal.
Here's the haul in all it's shabby glory (and a very old Citadel Mail Order box)
But what are the individual bits?
A mortar. The barrel isn't attached as I think I was planing on being able to switch it with the cannon barrel for some double use however....
This old metal great cannon that I found assembled means that won't be necessary.
On the sprue front I located four pairs of knightly legs, horses, lances and the like. But with only three torsos. However as I only need two at this stage that's no matter.
Seven spearmen and three command were also retrieved, so I can build the spearmen up to thirty.
I also located the box of old, old plastic wizards.
However disaster struck as the Amethyst wizard was not amongst them. Clearly at some point in the past I'd snipped him out with a view to painting him up, but alas and alack he's now lost!
Intriguingly however I had two of the plastic Bright Wizard. One of which was still in the plastic bag he arrived in sellotaped the the front of White Dwarf around half a lifetime ago! So that's the one I'll be painting.
So tonight will see some snipping and glueing and preparation, and later this week I'll get a-spaying!
I also had a look through the rest of my Empire stash - and it's pretty substantial. More of that in future posts I think....
