Budget cuts

A mere thirty years ago I collected Warhammer Fantasy. There I’ve said it! The miniatures were fifty pence each (ouch) and they were Citadel and not Games Workshop. I did splash out on the two pounds ninety nine needed to purchase just two( count them) just two Lord of the Rings miniatures. I can remember looking aghast at Southsea Models offer to paint these bad boys for two pounds each. If only…as it was my student grant only stretched to sixty or so miniatures a month. 

Well, thirty years have raced by and my eldest son has fallen for the new kid on the block, Warhammer 40k. Before you type, I know it’s been around for twenty five years! So stage two saw me offering my youngest son my Warhammer fantasy collection. No thanks Dad, I prefer 40k….how I laughed😢


As I bit back the tears, my last hope was eBay. Search Warhammer fantasy adventurers and help me refloat my finances. Nevermind the years, nevermind the work of my student days when I should have been studying. The collection is being sold and if you think the restraint will last then you will be very much mistaken. Posting tomorrow with my Swiss army for Domfest at Bristol in two weeks.

Now appearing on Warhammer fantasy ebay😜
