Having a birthday so close to Christmas has never been a problem for me. I’ve heard others say it’s a drag because they don’t have anything to look forward to throughout the year. Having not known any different I can’t really comment. All I can say is that I’ve always loved it. Christmas is exciting, still is, then it’s New Years and then bang birthday time!! Whoop whoop.
This year my lovely wife gave me a hefty injection of cash to spend on my dorky hobby. Thanks Love!! I’ve already spent a chunk via my good friend eBay.
Now its decision time.
To Bolt Action or Not to Bolt Action?
Its a game and a collection of lovely models I keep coming back to and why wouldn’t I???
Check these out. The details are incredible along with the poses.
Awesome historically correct models (Toy soldiers). As with everything else to do with this hobby it takes me back to my youth. That boy on the rug playing soldiers haha.
I’m trying to brainwash my mate to get into BA too to give me an excuse to buy two armies. However, worse case scenario, I’ll just have two really cool armies painted and up on display.
One small negative is that I can’t convert the models. Actually scrap that, I could I guess but I’m kind of excited to keep them historically correct. I even like the thought of reenacting actual battles that took place in WWII.
Im also looking forward to building terrain and a game table.
Another thing I like is the vast range of models, armies and add ons.
Oh and one more thing, I plan on learning all the rules properly.
I think im sold.
I’m definitely getting some Blitzkreig but should I go with US troops or Brits?
I like the rag tag motley look of the Americans but I also like the polished stuff upper lip of the Brits. Plus I was born in England so have always had a soft spot for them. Plus with the Brits I can then delve into SAS, commandos etc too. Maybe even Dads Army as well haha.
Alright. Decision made – Blitzkreig (1000pts). British (1000pts).
Think I’ll get the 2nd edition Band of Brothers starter too so then I have the rules etc plus some cool looking GI’s. Mohawks are cool in any conflict man!
Watch this space.
Good chat guys.
