Old servitob must be going crazy or something in his old age because last week whilst on his lunchbreak he walked into a Games Workshop store and bought something!
To be straight I just fancied painting something; so here you are folks.
The older ones among you may recall a fantasy Napoleonic game called Flintloque; where the British orcs led by Lord Wheeling-Turn and the invincible Dick Shark and his band of merry riflemen would go up against French Elves. I can’t remember the game being all that great but the idea was pretty amusing. Is my paintjob a coincidence?
If you’re still awake at this point you may have noticed that the picture has five orks in it. Wot’s append to da uvver boyz den?
These are quite possibly the greatest miniatures I’ve ever bought. To give full credit they are a box of “Perry Miniatures British Napoleonic Line Infantry 1808-1815”, containing 40 figures (36 redcoats and 4 light infantry) in 28mm scale.
Why are they so awesome? Let me sum it up:
1) Great sculpts from the Perry Bros
2) Plenty of unit options, no need to buy an extra box set if you want the unit to contain a multimelta or almost mandatory powerfist (useful for falcon punching those stubborn grognards!)
On to the really good stuff:
3) All bases are included
4) Unit painting guide included
5) Unit flags included
6) All of this for RRP £18!
Hoorah for pipe and slippers gaming!
