well that once in a while inheritance cheque, much delayed, finally came in last week. after thinking hard about what to do I decided that I would stop annoying people by asking if they could pass on models to me and decided to use the money to fist do some things on my favourite on line game, and then I went to eBay to find some good deals, after ruling out the USA's mega hobby for huge shipping costs I settled on Always model in Taiwan I think.I was amazed that their shipping was so good and although the figs were a bit more I saved $30 NZ! so what did I get???
lets start off with the rebels, I have long desired to get this set and this money gave me the chance to purchase it... the IMEX North Korean KPA!!!! old but incredible this now hard to find in NZ set was well worth the $12 US for 50+ figures I was very happy!
Now onto those civilians, this time a Caesar set from WW2 so some of the weapons will be old and the cloths out of date. However they have a distinctly European look which I need to balance out the Arab look of the current civilians/ armed gangs
I would have preferred to get the newer set with the nun and the figures that have rudimentary uniform but they were not available on the Always model site :-( anyway these figure will make an interesting addition to the rebels civilian wing
and finally we come to the special guys, another Caesar set that I think will be used in the end for both forces in this war and also for some of the outside nations. it is of coarse the Caesar special forces set! the only really modern set that's coming in this haul.
All pics are of coarse from that modelers god-send plasticsoldierreview.com the most useful site that I have found, for plastic models, when it comes to purchases. all in all this cost me around $55 NZ which seems quite a bit but is a good deal when compared to other places. and I still have some money left over which is even better.
