While visiting my brother, he rounded up all his old painted minis and let me borrow the box of them to share on the blog.
From Left to Right: Knight 02-915, ?, ?
We got a Knight, in a nice knightly pose. The other two appear to be some robed travelers. I thought the paint colors were interesting here, suggesting some early mid-eastern civilizations. I imagine the latter two were likely used as townsfolk, random NPCs in our roleplaying and dungeon crawler games. The knight is a bit smaller scale, was likely used as a henchman, guard, etc.
I tried finding the two ‘townsfolk’, but no luck, and they aren’t my favorite minis. Plus, I’m prepping this post to launch while we head out for a bit of vacation, which brings us to this next tangent…
Tangent – The Best Vacation
The family will be heading off for a mini-vacation for a few days. About the time this post hits, I’ll be up on Orcas Island in Washington. Drinking some pilsner and eating delicious Penn Cove mussels. Prefaced by a geek pilgrimage to the Seattle Museum of Pop Culture, to check out the Marvel Comics exhibit (https://www.mopop.org/marvel). We will also venture around downtown Seattle for a bit. My other geeky wish (you can tell I’m going to milk this birthday for all I can, right?!) is to drop by a martial arts store I saw on a previous trip. I’ve always wanted to own a pair of sais, and they had some. Plus I don’t have any nunchakus or kamas anymore. Yea, I really need to decorate the office, haha! Let’s see who talks me out of that wild idea first, myself or wife. Once we’re at Orcas, we will be surrounded by nature. It’s so relaxing up there, and it’s nice to get far away.
How about you? What’s an ideal vacation for you? Do you like to go wild and adventurous or take a break from it all and get some peace of mind? Do you like trips to other countries? How many countries have you been to? Do you like road trips? Do you like cruises? Do you like to ride rocket ships to other planets? Are you trapped in a Necromunda Hive and can’t get out?
