Amazing! Went down to my local Games club (Sunday, May 27, 2012) yesterday and a fellow gamer makes his way to my table and says..."Got some Flames of War German stuff if you want it. Cleaning out my stuff and a friend left it at my place and he don't want it no more and I don't want it. By the way it's free."
I got lots of German FoW Toys in my collection but some of the stuff I found in the dusty box I don't have. Cool! I gave a fellow gamer a chance to have a scab through and take what ever he thought he could use so he grabbed an Early Tiger and a couple of Infantry figures. Some of the stuff has had some paint splashed on it so will need a Magic Green soak. No big deal really when it's free.
Maybe it is a case of karma as a few weeks ago I took a bag of bits I found in my man cave left over from some of those GW 40k building kits and I gave them away. A few years ago I built some for the Clubs terrain collection and my brother gave me a kit for a Christmas present one year so a few bits didn't get used and they hung around the depths of the Man Cave until I had a tidy up one day. No use to me so no reason to hang on to them despite that idea running against the grain of Gamer collector/hoarder who will one day maybe have an idea to use them for. You know what I mean I am sure.
Give me a bit of time to sort through what is in the box and I will give some away through this blog. A quick glance at the stuff and a lot of it looks like older Battlefront casts.
