New Toys

Lots of them – bucket loads – well almost!

I got back to the office today after a business trip away for a week. My desk was covered in mail. Apart from the four work related letters (I’ll deal with them Wednesday) I had some parcels. I received:

  • 9 books from Osprey Publishing – how could I miss – it was their summer sale, 50% off over 100 of their titles and a flat charge of £5.00 only for postage regardless of how many books were ordered. With the Aussie dollar at stellar levels at the moment it was too good an opportunity to pass up.
  • 3 books from Book Depository in the UK. Again, these folks price in Aussie dollars for us here and include postage in the price of the book (its advertised as postage free but I suspect the postage cost is built into the business model somewhere). The books covered a couple of 19th century topics and Rome. I had received a fourth book before I went away (and which provided reading on the flights).
  • 3 DBA armies from Alain Touller Figurines of France in 15mm.
  • 6mm World War 2 figures from Adler Miniatures – these are the Russians and what was received should cover all my Russian infantry needs for the World War 2 project.

I will expand this in a later post with more details, pictures of the figures and so on. At the moment, however, I am in wargamer sensory overload – looking at them all and wondering which pile to play with first!

    What were the DBA armies Thomo?

      Ah the Alain Touller? Mongol (madam was not enamoured with them – I guess that is a fail), Korean and Byzantine. I'm trying to remember exactly which variants of three said armies but that may need to wait until I return to Sydney or until I find the stocktake post in the Hole here.

      The figures are certainly lovely.
