My latest distraction

Well I found myself at my club's show just over a week ago with money in my wallet and to be honest nothing really to spend it on. That's my excuse for being a bit weak, Mexican Dave has been trying to entice me into Spartan Games Dystopian Wars, so long story short, there was a trader selling the stuff, so I thought for a minute it's 1870, Dave has been buying odds and ends of a Prussian fleet, Franco-Prussian war and all that, so I should be pretty safe buying a French fleet. Besides who can resist cruisers that are flying, so thats what I bought and the rulebook of course.

Thats them done apart from one cruiser still on the painting table, I was a happy bunny as I got 10 frigates instead of 9, then the happiness evaporated somewhat when I sat down and read the "fluff" the Prussians are actually allies of the French, bugger!!!!

My latest army

Well after a successfull snipe on Ebay, I have aquired yet another 6mm SciFi army for Future War Commander and couldnt resist posting the fruits of my bidding here.

In FWC terms that represents a 12,000 point army, and I still have shedloads (about 25) APCs left, which was what I was really after when I bid on this lot. Sensibly I dont believe that I'll ever get the chance to field them as a whole as even FWC has its limits for speed of play, but it is an impressive load of kit. Even more impressive when you consider that it cost me £10.50, I couldnt even get the Thunderhawk dropship for that as at current GW prices pretty much anything Epic costs £12.30. The OOP plastic titans are going for about £19 on Ebay at the moment, and lets not mention the Baneblade or Shadowsword Heavy Tanks. So all in all, am I pleased with my purchase? You betcha!!!!!
