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.
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!
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.
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,
