Man Down - Classic IG Casualties
"What are all those men doing lying about over there?
Get them up and moving at once!"
"They're dead, Colonel."
"Ah, I see. Belay that order!"
Ebay is usually a bad thing. I go on the website, then after about half an hour, I've suddenly lost about £40. But, to cheer me up, after a few days some nice models arrive - and these are nicer than most.
Classic Mordian Iron Guard casualty models! I do like painting a few casualty models, so I can pop them down on the field to mark where my men are (inevitably) scythed down like wheat. And these are particularly nice, because they're Mordians I haven't seen before, so I get to paint something a bit new.
I selfishly bought the entire lot and there aren't any on as I write this, but they do keep appearing from time to time. I found these through an email alert, and they cost me about £10.
On another note, a few may remember my lament over the passing of Mordians into the history books as GW stopped making them. Well, shock horror they are back on! What's going on? Pangs of conscience at Oberkommando der GW? Who knows? ...
Working on the WW1 Russians and Germans as we speak, and hopefully the next update will cover that.
