Build Me An Army Worthy Of……………..

Posted: December 10, 2012 in Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit

Well my move to a new home has gone mostly with out a problems. My plan of getting the decorating done before we moved in failed, well sort off. Out of the 6 rooms, 2 of them needed no major work just a lick of paint. Off the other 4 it was just a case of lining paper and painting the walls…………..

Well the bedroom and living room have needed to be re-plastered in places, the hallway has needed some of the floor boards replaced and the dinning room also needs re-plastering in places.

As for my models nearly all of them have been stored in my shed. I have how ever still been picking up models from E-bay and have picked up quite a few models, including some hard to find models. I have also picked up the limited edition Forge World Wethertop model from ebay. Now this beast weighs in at £220.00 + 12% postage from Forge World and is only available once or twice a year, now I wanted to buy one when it was first released. But I never got round to it now some 10 years later i decided to take the plunge and buy one.

Another buy this month has been the Hobbit boxed set From GW. This was the first thing I have pre-ordered from GW in a very long time, and I have to say I was very disappointed with the service. In the old days if you pre-ordered you got the item on the day of  release, but now it seems you can only get your item on release day if it is sent to your local store. Now this is fine if you are near a store (which I am) but I was to busy that day, and so I opted for it to be delivered……………….well I received my order on the Tuesday after release.

Once again GW`s service has taken a kick in the guts. If it was not for Maelstrom Games going bust I would have ordered it from them,so now I need to find another on-line retailer to get my stuff from.

As for the boxed set I have opened it and had a quick flick at the books and dribbled over the models but that is about it. hopefully i will be able to take some photos and get them on-line.

Now I better get on and do some work in the flat………..
