Plastic fantastic

I was recently presented with a large cardboard box (thanks Mark!) which I was assured might contain things of interest to me.  On opening it I was greeted by the sight above - hundreds (or even thousands) of 20mm plastic figures!
I have now had a chance to rummage thought the contents and liberated a few ancient/dark ages hairy barbarian types in the process, together with a couple of boxes worth of Revell TYW infantry.
Mostly the figures in the box are Napoleonics and therefore of no interest to me.  Would anyone like to take them off my hands?

That looks like great fun! I'll happily give them a new home.

I could collect from SWC in Wednesday.

They're yours Richard! See you on Wednesday.

Tim Gow said...

Quite so. Nothing 20thC I'm afraid.

Nothing C20th? How is that even possible??????

Uncle Brian said...

That is an awesome haul! Oh the refurbishing fun you will have with them!

Tim Gow said...

Uncle Brian

Crumbs quite a heap - good luck with sorting it out

Tim Gow said...

I've picked out the bits I wanted - now it's Counterpane's problem!

Counterpane said...

...and I'll probably share the problem with Will at some point!

Your generosity also makes you a biblical devil Tim, many a wargamer's housewife are now 'radar active' for that box!

Oh how I'd love to embark on another project

But firstly I'd get shot (by the wife)

And I have twelve other projects left "to at least start" of finish

Thank gawd somebody else said "I'll have them first" ;)

I hope they found a good home though :)

On other matter:
We will have to meet up for a wargame (Fletcher Pratt's naval, Mega Blitz or anything at a distant COW), but sadly probably not in 2013

I'll have to pack my kids off to uni first I think (13 to 15 years time them .. no has to be sooner than that?)
