I had a really great time (4 sorts of fish for starters and 8 sorts of meat for mains at Christmas lunch) and some really fab presents, which I present below
Zulu command set from Empress
Naval Squad in Sennet hats from Copplestone
Couple of Fishermen from Black Cat Bases and "The Good, The Bad and the Weird from Tsuba miniatures
Carthaginian General from Magister Militum and 2 pygmies in masks from Black Cat
Bag of Pathans from Old Glory
Parthian Camel Cataphracts from Magister
And finally Bengal Lancers from Perry
Generally I'm really pleased with all of them. I've not bought from Magister of Black Cat before and then are good - Magister being very much old school but well executed and I've always wanted some of these camels.
A special word must go out to Tsuba Miniatures, these may be the best figures I've ever bought - I have more not shown that will pop up on the Painting Challenge this week. The sculpting and casting is fantastic. They can be bought from Empress bt i went direct to the blog and bought them from Marcus directly. Took a little long as he has an actual life as well but much cheaper. The selection is small but interesting.
