|"Hand crafted in pewter" - that's the stuff!!|
Visited the local independent Games Workshop stockist and the friendly chap asked me if I was looking for anything in particular. Why yes, I said, do you have any old or used 40K stuff? Like from the Rogue Trader era of the late '80s?
Friendly chap replied that indeed, he had a bin full of old blister packs, and would I care to take a look? Indeed!! So he brought out a large bin chock-full of OOP 40K goodness... Plaguebearers, Black Shadow Bike, Terminators, Chaos Renegades till Hell wouldn't have them all... unfortunately nothing was priced and he couldn't tell me what he wanted for 'em. Wanted to check eBay... bleurgh. So I picked my favourite pack and made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
Now the Howling Griffons have a Librarian, and I'm intending to convert the Captain into a standard bearer for them too. The pack was opened shortly after the picture was taken... I've now officially joined Conscript Greg as a MIP desecrator ;-) But figures are made to be painted, right?
