My list for this year amounted to some additional bits of Hexon terrain and er, that was about it. I had even pre-ordered and paid for the Hexon. What could go wrong? Well quite a bit actually. Things started quite gently with some useful looking 54mm figures from a trader's rummage box.
Along with the Britains Horse Guards and bandsmen, the rather camp mechanic (in the fetching yellow & red outfit), I picked out the rather dodgy Ninja as a possible assassin figure.
On then to the Bring & Buy at which point the slippery slope became much steeper. The stall was awash with old 25mm ancients - most quite decently painted and temptingly cheap. Negotiations were begun and I eventually emerged with a rather splendid Sassanid army with a few additional bits:
I already have plans for the Sassanids (and indeed had previously planned building such a force) so maybe it wasn't too ridiculous a purchase. In fact this army falls into a poor second place in the list of silly purchases. The number one spot was won, by a considerable margin, by the box of Chinese chariots. Help me.
