Buying more stuff!

When I started this blog it was supposed to be a bit about doing this hobby "on the cheap".  Now I find myself buying even more stuff!

This is a little different though as I'm not buying any new figures (I tell myself....) with this birthday cash.  I'm going to get some hobby stuff from Maelstrom thanks to the weaker Pound and their free shipping policy.

Top of the list is going to be some Army Painter "dip".  I'm keen to give this a go, as anything that speeds up my painting will encourage me to get back into tackling the Lead Mountain.  Also I'll be picking up some Flames of War bases for my Flashpoint figures and......for the first time ever...... flock and static grass!  w00t!

I'm also going to pick up a copy of Cold War Commander.  I know at least one reader of this blog who will now be fighting his gag reflex at the thought of the Warmaster system, but I'm looking at options to get my 6mm stuff back out again.


  1. Yay for more updates!

    Maelstrom is an excellent place to get minis from at the moment and is the source of most of my flames of war stuff.

  2. Ouch!

    That was a pointed comment. :)

    Let me know what you think of the practicalities of Cold War Commander.

  3. Everytime I hear the word "warmaster" I get this mental image of you wincing! :)

    I'm keen to give it a thorough going over. Let you know what I think after that.

    Hope all is well with you and the family?
