Well, perhaps good isn't the right word... Productive perhaps.
Package arrived from Copplestone Castings early this morning (ordered yesterday) and it should have meant I had all the 15mm Northlander packs to date. Sadly, there was a mis-pick, and the beardless Northlanders were AWOl, with a pack of Barbarian Heroes in their stead.
So I emailed CC, and took the opportunity to ask about future releases whilst I was at it.
Picked up a bunch of storage trays when I was out, and spent the remainder of the afternoon sorting out all the 15mm stuff I've amassed so far, which is a fair bit, it seems to accumulate a lot quicker than 28mm does. I also sorted out some of the files on the laptop, and organised the rules and stuff I've downloaded. I picked up the Song of bundle and the Splintered Lands rules yesterday from Wargames Vault.
Also, got a reply from Mark saying the missing pack was going in the post today, and, regarding the next few packs, here I quote -
The Barbarian Command (3 leaders, 3 hornblowers and 4 standard bearers)
and Shapechangers with Bears should be available by the end of next
week, or at worst the following Monday. There will also be a pack of
wolves (a modified version of my 10mm Giant Wolves).
Which is good news indeed as it turns my ragtag horde of Barbarians into a fighting force to be reckoned with. It also means I am going to have to come up with some command model rules too... The extra Heroes pack might just find itself turned into a Splintered Lands warband as I'd already based the two tester models on round bases anyway.
In other news, I managed to persuade the missus to make a small Demonworld order from RPE, just so that I can gauge the scale of the minis and see how compatible they are with the Splintered Light and Copplestone stuff, basically got all of the smaller packs of Beastmen, which, should they prove too small, still be enough for a full Mighty Armies force.
Oh yeah, and Splintered Light is running a 20% off sale until the end of the year. Roll on payday, I feel the need to amass a few more Cave Imps, Satyrs and Dark Elves. And no doubt a bunch of other stuff too...
