Ok I have only succumbed to 1 box of Warlord games plastics so far, and I am most definitly not a metal/plastics snob, as I'm happy to work in both mediums and having been fundamentaly an aircraft modeller for years I like plastic. I have got a box off Victrix and some Perry plastic ACW cavalry and french very nice....but these new ECW are probably going to tilt the balence they may be convertable for post ECW as well without to much trouble but I have a feeling as long as they price them right and don't start taking the mickey price wise like games Workshop then I might as well inform my employers to divert my wages direct and cut out the middle man ...me (If your reading this 'Hazy' only joking on that point!)
A jolly drummer
An OK Officer and I know valuminous clothing & sashes were all the rage with kevin keegan hairdoos in the ECW but he looks like he needs to attend a few weightwatchers meetings!
Nicely painted pike
Sprues etc on Warlord games web site......all in all very nice and if compatable with existing Perry/Foundry ECW I will try some packs especially the cavalry.
This is a late entry on the Blog as I spent the evening actually wargaming for the first time in ages!!!! Now D & D roleplaying started with friends from work 18 months ago (after 20+ year gap)and this evening wasn't the historical stuff which I'm predominantly interested in but the dark side 'warhammer'!! now I have got a partly painted dark elf army, cos I like to paint models but have only just played my first game & it was fun thanks to Ryan from work who hosted the game and knows the rules back to front etc etc. it was a fun game my 'Wood Elves' got thrashed by the Green Orc types 948 points to 631 with only my cavalry surviving having taken out the Goblin rider chaps on wolves and his artillery but it was fun....and that is what it should be all about. Anyhow Ryan and his uncle who works for a military history publishing company game other stuff including WW1 Belgians!! how mad is that!! so that will be a future game.
