Box of cr*p

A few weeks ago I had an excited 'phone call from John A.  He had found a big box of toys on a market stall which he thought might be suitable for Little Cold Wars.  Did I want him to buy it for me?  I expect you can hazard your own answer to that question....
Two weeks ago I took delivery of the weighty plastic crate and have now had time to have a rummage through the contents.  There are around 200 figures of the plastic army men variety in scales from 40mm to 54mm, a number of vehicles and a load of terrain bits.  And bizzarely a couple of trebuchets.
I can use most of the vehicles and have sorted around 80 figures and some terrain - the rest will be on the bring & buy at COW a week on Friday!

The cost of this box of delights?  A massive £8......

Nice Platoon of M48's there Tim.

Platoon? Each one represents a platoon!

A fine Squadron of M48s there, Tim... Most of that stuff looks handy for something. Give of take the trebuchets...

Daft and genius all in one go. Bravo!

Hey!

Try stuffing a dead cow into the muzzle of a howitzer and then tell me the trebuchets are a joke.

Lots of useful stuff in there. I was going to go trawling round town today for similar stuff but I got distracted with books....

Cheers,

Pete.

I knew you'd like it!

Ste Haran
I think you sum it up rather well.

Stu Rat
Fair point. Although if you had a big enough howitzer....

Let me know if you want any dodgy plastic figures.

I'm pretty sure I have one of those M48's painted up as an Ork tank around somewhere from a decade+ ago. It looks like you've got a Tiger and some other tank with the turrets switched. What's the other than supposed to be?

Tim Gow said...

Arquinsiel
The other small green tank is vaguely Sheridan-esque. Very vaguely...

There comes a point in time where you just end up saying "fuck it, I'll use a Transformer". It seems to be happening a lot of late.
