Legs. And alternatives to Cadians

For a long time, the lack of legs has hindered Vraks renegade armies everywhere. Either there weren't the legs for the renegades or there were scores of cadian torsos and heads languishing in boxes for want of some form of parambulatory aparatus. No longer. Pig Iron have finally answered the call with something more than suitable, something which cries out for another platoon or two of renegades.


My poor old bloodcoats have not seen enough love recently. Thrown together and haphazardly painted, they were always 'the opposition' for my beloved Iggies to defeat. And incase your havn't seen them yet, check these babies out:


Much better than the Wargames Factory's Greatcoat Stormtroopers. I can already feel my credit card heating up.

The Doctor will see you now

An unexpected by product of this hobby (all the more unexpected for having cropped up twice), is the provision of secondary care for injured playmobile people. This poor pirate was trodden on by Steve (dad). I suspect the grevious nature of the injury has been hidden from Alex (4 years and counting). Anyway, after my sojourn in Kent, I imparted my wisdom; that broken playmobile limbs would break again if merely glued and that they need pinning. So I got the job; the bit of paperclip you can see to the left has since become the pirate's new leg bone. Now all I have to do is get him back to his ship....
