The first package was from Hasslefree Miniatures, ordered during their post-Thanksgiving sale and en route for several weeks. Besides the two pieces of candy, it contained ten 28mm miniatures.
The top row (l-r) are for use in post-apocalypse or 7TV games. The first is a steampunk mini that I just liked. The second appears to be inspired by the Kate Beckinsale character in the 'Underworld' movies. The third is an especially nice archer. Most of my post-apoc miniatures have firearms, so it is good to have some different weapons. The fourth is a martial artist, and will be used as a 7TV hero.
The bottom row consists of six miniatures in power armor. I plan on using them with the This is Not a Test rules as the core of a Preserver force. The third from the left, the one not wearing a helmet, will be the leader. I really like this mini, seeing it on the website is what gave me the impetus to order the whole group.
The second package was from The Warstore. I ordered it on Tuesday during their after-Christmas sale and it arrived on Friday; great service from them as always. In the picture below are (l-r): 1. An issue of Wargames Illustrated from June 2012, they are giving away random old issues for free. The theme is the Jacobite rebellion, so I'll have something good to read. 2. A set of Army Painter sculpting tools. 3. Some P3 brass rod for pinning. 4. Green stuff. 5. Three Perry Crusader knights (code CU6). 6. A bottle of Vallejo Rust Wash and a bottle of Army Painter Matte varnish.
In the past I haven't done much with green stuff other than filling gaps. I want to experiment with it in 2017, hence the sculpting tools . The Rust Wash will be used on some pieces of post-apocalypse terrain. The Perry knights will be added to my SAGA Crusader army, I like the overhand pose and have wanted this pack for a while.
Happy New Year!
