No gaming for me, this week. However, I did do two gaming related things: 1. Acquire and assemble this totally sweet 1/48 Tamiya Universal Carrier and 2. followup on the upcoming Hobbit related wargaming releases from Games Workshop. Firstly: The Hobbit Premiers this Thursday night here in NZ (renamed again to Middle Earth, for the duration) and us Hoi Polloi get to go see it a couple of weeks later. My lovely wife has just booked us in to go see it in 3D on the Saturday because I am now an actual worker with three kids and can't just get tanked and go see the midnight first screening like Fellowship of the Ring, 'back in the day'. Anyway here in the home of Middle Earth Gaming, I thought I'd check out the new Middle Earth gaming. Turns out the joke is on me.
Heh. As if I'm allowed to pay those prices though. I get to pay NZD $245 for that box set; NZD $145 for those four characters and NZD $165 for the mishapen lumps of clay! Sure. I guess I'm not their target market then!
Motosikel Rota from V1 FOW days. Here they are as a section of five with their transport. I'm not sure how 'effective' this option is but the idea of having the lighter WW2 vehicles (as well as things like 2cm flak a la Saving Private Ryan) in play is what attracted me to WW2 skirmish.
Hoping I get some space for gaming (Middle Earth, or otherwise) soon!
