|My new precious|
I am sure its fun enough, but it leaves me cold, and I never really liked the expressionless and stiff looking Ral Partha figures. However, ten minutes in and I couldn't help but get nostalgic. What?? How could I get nostalgic about something I never had or was into? Is this sensation psudeoonostalgia? or some form of nostalgia reflex my brain kicks into when it sees something just a little bit crappy and old? Hmmm. Strange.
It may have something to do with the spray fixative I have been zapping my board with.
Anyway, if you see this book, grab it. Not to play... oh heavens no... just for the chockablock old school looking minis and a vibe that's really 1980s (even though, somewhat embarrassingly, its a 1990's publication). There is just so much charm oozing from the pictures, and there is not one illustration in sight... its all colour photos.
So here I am, inexplicably, drooling for old Ral Partha and full of inspiration for scenery and a fresher look at base decorations.
It has been just the ticket to set me back onto my righteous path of completing my skirmish board and wagon raid project... though at the moment its looking more like a game of 'nick the donkeys'.
Anyway, back with more painted old school goodness soon.
