So it seems I am weak

This is a start of a new project (and me bitching about how weak I am) the Scots from Warlord are part of my new ECW project which I will be working on for the next few months. The plan is to collect a force and then me and some of the guys from the VBCF Forum will meet up and have a game.

The bitching part of this post is because I broke and bought from Games Workshop having vowed not to give them anymore of my cash.

When I was still but a nipper I wanted to get the Clan Escher gang for Necromunda but what with one thing or another never did. As Games Workshop are waving goodbye to their specialist ranges and won't be producing the figures again I decided to just buy the basic 8 figure gang (which was typically expensive for GW). What can I say I'm weak I've always wanted them and if I let the figures disappear into horrendously expensive collectors land or just vanish entirely I would have been irritated at myself for all time.

So there you have it straight from the horses mouth I am weak and the hobby is strong!

  1. I personify weakness! Or to quote Oscar Wilde "I can resist anything other than temptation". I also think that Necromunda was the best thing GW ever produced.

    1. So very true, Necromunda was a great game fun, simple but loads of depth and opportunity to make your own stuff without needing tons of models or space to play.

  2. Its never a weakness to purchase something you desire the weakness is when you purchase for the sake of it and dont really want it

  4. Thanks for the support chaps, I suppose as it has been a long term want that I had assumed would always be available its not to bad. Its a shame really as the Specialist range had some of the best figures.
