Hey, hope you are all well. I've been busy. I'd run out of space to store toy soldiers so I've been having a clear out and selling some stuff on ebay. I've sold my team yankee 6mm british army for about what I paid for it, painted it for fun. I am now selling off my pirate collection. Many years ago, when I had just got back into the hobby and had no clue what i was doing (like now), I bought a pirate army from Wargames foundry. They are lovely figures and I enjoyed painting them but there were about 250 figures - enough to raid Panama City - and what the hell do you do with that many pirates. So they have sat painted and unloved for over 10 years. Some I'm selling them on ebay in groups of 20 - who the hell else would want 250 pirates. Have a few other things to sell which will free up space and give me spending money to fill that space up. The ebay auction thing is quite exciting as a seller, I find it very annoying as a buyer.
Annoyingly as it's my 1st ebay sale they are holding onto the money for 3 weeks hust to check I'm not a dodgy geezer.
Speaking of freeing up space I've bought loads of things. My ACW order from Northstar is stuck at the casters, my Pendraken 10mm Italian Wars order will by my christmas present, my Wargames foundry Greek Mythology order will be my mother's christmas present - she has a thing for Greek mythology and me making presents for her lets her think I'm still 8 and 1/4. Hopefully my Col Bills Andalusians will come soon, that is Matt's fault as I really enjoyed our El Cid game on Saturday, Matt's write up is here
Enough waffling. Dave gave me some Foundry gladiators and I've painted them up
