There was a small display of new products from Thundercloud Miniatures; I did have a chat with the guy there. The range is small at the moment, but they are doing more. The photo does not do it justice, but the Easterling/Kislev type archer on the polar bear was getting a great deal of attention.
And no sign of a kickstarter. Yet.
And moving swiftly on, a highlight for me was the absolutely not a genestealer cult from Macrocosm Miniatures. Macrocosm do squats as well.
So there are is a big enough range to throw yourself together a decent scale cult.
No limos though.... But with the release of Deathwatch, these guys should see some more love. The man I spoke to did say that he'd already noticed an interest in hits on the website.
I did indulge, picking up a pack up hybrids ('cos they're nice minis), which is breaking a rule. I plan on comparing and contrasting these against the Deathwatch ones fairly soon..... I also picked up a handfull of 25mm and 60mm laser cut bases, which are are allowed under the rules as they are to enable finishing up things in the bitzbox.
I also picked up a box of Frostgrave cultists. Which I am allowing under the rules under the 'using up weapons' and therefore allowed. No really, that's a genuine and great reason.
There was also a naval game in a unusual scale (for a naval game). It was actually based on a real Italian torpedo boat raid on the RN in Crete in the early war. But all I think of was HMS Troutbridge. If you follow that reference you're probably, well, you know.
But "Yea !" for scratch built models.
Abingdon Wargaming club has a facebook page and already has a date programmed for next year (Sun 05 Mar 17)
And of course the last picture has to be real Godzilla vs Robot Godzilla.
