As I said a few days ago, I’d ordered a couple of presents for myself from Foreign Parts. Choosing them spoils the surprise of course, but it doesn’t diminish the excitement!
Before I mention the first of those to arrive, I’ve also got to mention a gift of the Island of Blood Warhammer 8th set. Lots of goodies in there.
The somewhat contentious 8th edition of Warhammer has been mentioned in various debates on this site, but I haven’t played 8th yet. Now I’ve been given a set I can join in the comments with a better understanding rather than having to extrapolate my knowledge of the first 7 editions. On first skim I have to say that I’m not seeing the disaster that the doom-sayers have been touting. Perhaps I’ll find it when I get into the detail and put some armies on the tabletop. We’ll see.
However, putting that aside for a moment, I was woken early this morning by the postman delivering a very special present. A dragon, sorry, Dragon. But not just any old Dragon – A Legacy Miniatures Titan Dragon! I was going to keep this under my hat for a while as it’s so much more appropriate to start on the 23rd of January. But I can’t.
In case you weren’t aware, the 23rd of January is Chinese New Year, and next year is the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese calendar. And what better Dragon to celebrate it with than the mother of all of them?
So this is just a tease for the moment. Sorry for that. I couldn’t resist. I’ll be doing a full review and assembly in due course, but it’ll take a while to get it even just cleaned and put together. It’s huge!
