As noted elsewhere the Alternative order arrived - finished the last bidower.
Happened to hit ebay and saw a lot with 10 of the pavisers (still no clue as to manufacturer) I am using for my Low Country Armies and as I needed 4 more for consistency, bought the lot. A bunch of late armored pike and knights that I have less use for at the moment, but for the price it wasn't a bad deal.
Went ahead and made an order to Museum to fill in some holes and see if Dave will let me have some chariot horses and crew for a chariot I got off the Bazaar. 10 percent off now vs a possible 25 at the beginning of next year, but I can wrap up a partially painted chariot.
Good score on those smellies Paul. A bit pricey, but with OOP figures to be expected (and actually not that bad compared to the price of some current products).
As to purchases, I just picked up some Avars and Bulgars and some Medieval and Early Renaissance Essex packs off TMP. 56 packs in total for $160 - some that i wasn't that keen on, but as a package deal worth getting.
Also just received an order from Alternative Armies - Welsh pike, late 13th and early 14th C knights, some armored and unarmored halberds, some generic archers, and some bombards. Will let me finish up a couple of Low Countries armies as all TTG figures as well as building a North Welsh Army.
I had promised myself to finish painting armies that are near completion or just to add a couple of elements to complete the list options before I ordered anything else....but I've ordered a new army and a few pieces before I see will be a rise in prices post-Brexit.
I opted for the Murong Xianbei and a couple of ellies for my Indians...all from Outpost Miniatures...now my Hindus and Tamils have access to 5 ellies.🐘
New year sales got me Hindus & Ch’in (Essex), Hussites (Museum) and Tang (Khurasan).
That's quite the little splurge. Fun!
Christmas, Birthday and Tax rebate celebrations all came in at the same time and justified 3 armies. The 25% off justified the 4th! 😀. Further justified as a reward for me painting 10 DBA armies in 2018.
