UK Games Expo Haul

UK Games Expo at the NEC last weekend (3-5 June) was a great show, and everyone on the Osprey stand put in a shift and a half! As a buying show, though, it was relatively quiet for me - I had no big plans or objectives, and so limited myself to cool little impulse buys.

First up, for a forthcoming project, this little doozy from Cosy Dice, who were right opposite our stand (talk about fortuitous!). A really nice dice bag from a couple of lovely people. I heartily recommend the company, especially if you have a custom job in mind.

This Kraken bag can be found here.

The best thing I found at the show, however, was something that had slipped under my radar - the anthropomorphic animal models from Oathsworn Miniatures. I found them on the Friday (I think - time stopped meaning much after the first couple of hours!), and picked up the rulebook for their game, Burrows & Badgers. It's essentially Redwall: The Wargame, and is great stuff! Badger mercenaries, dormouse sneak thieves, drunken weasels, fox crimelords... I read over the setting and the rules and fell in love with it.

Of course, having a nice range of models helps, and I went back on the Saturday to pick up a couple of choice figures... then sent a mate over on the Sunday to grab one more! They're adorable figures, and I'm looking to nab a load more once these are painted. Clearly, I need a badger to support the pug, weasel, and fox I have at the moment. And an otter. And probably a wildcat. And there's a brilliant bat necromancer...


Finally, and not miniatures-related in any way, is this t-shirt featuring the greatest Pokemon of all time: Gengar. Picked up from the very nice people at www.gametee.co.uk (and coming with a free art print of the image too!). I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for more of their stuff.
