Letter from Mordheim & Spiel 08

Yesterday I received a letter from Mordheim...


Inside was the certificate for my Silver Tom in the recent Golden Tom competition at Tom's Boring Mordheim Forum.

The certificate is now proudly gracing my cabinet

Tom did a great job holding the contest and with these amazing certificates he certainly outdid himself. I just decided to get myself a full set of Bronze, Silver and Gold! :) Let the next contest begin!


SPIEL '08
Also yesterday I was at the SPIEL '08 in Essen, Germany. I discovered that Thomarillion (at the stand of Ziterdes) had some great cannons for sale that I had not seen before.

Thomarillion's cannons


The detailed muzzle

For a price of 2,50€ they are not the cheapest ones available but they are very detailed and I found them to be worth the money. I was quite surprised to see them as I didn't know they produced any cannons (otherwise they would have been included in my recent list of cannon manufacturers). I just checked the online stores of Thomarillion and Ziterdes - neither one has them up currently. I assume they will be added soon after the fair. We'll see. For now I look forward to painted them.

Other than that there was not much on the SPIEL for wargamers. Alkemy, MicroArt and Freebooters were represented; and Games Workshop, of course, with the biggest stand of them all. There was a shop that stocked em4 and they even had em4's pre-painted medieval inn for 60€, so that was kind of noteworthy.

So much for now,
Chris
