I went to my LGS today and impulse purchased some sandbags. These are really neat terrain items. Each piece measures 145mm in length and 25mm in height at the tall points. They come pre-painted. A pack costs $35.00 for six pieces. You can also buy a corners pack. The company that makes them is called Pegasus Hobbies, website www.pegasushobbies.com
I am really impressed and I intend to buy some more. I put a couple of 25mm figures next to the sandbags to give them scale. These figures are mounted on Games Workshop round slotta bases so they stand a bit taller than the popular flat wooden bases.

Western Front Anzacs

The next 10 man platoon of Western Front WWI Anzacs are complete. The lads are marching off to the front. I had originally planned to take the heads off these figures and stick on bush hat or slouch hat heads but I could not find any that were suitable. Soapy does his Australian head pack but the short cut down brim does nothing for me. The other option would be to buy Anzacs from Brigade Games and cut their heads off and transfer them over but that gets a little bit expensive. Figures are based up for Warhammer Historicals The Great War. Figures are 28mm Great War Miniatures. Next unit on the painting table is the Assault Platoon.

Rob Broom

A lot of wargamers learnt today of the sad news of Games Workshop suddenly retrenching Warhammer Historical manager Rob Broom. And news the historical branch is being moved to Forge World. This has left me gutted. I won't type my true feelings towards GW because there would be a lot of swearing and cursing.

Rob Broom is the driving force behind Warhammer Historical. He was always available to answer questions. If you read this mate, good luck with Scarab Miniatures and I hope you start publishing rule books soon because I will be a customer. Better still, immigrate to Australia so I can have a game with you. The sun is shinning 98% of the time here.

Good luck.
