|"It looked sharper in the packaging"|
OK, so the finds aren't that great, they're made from soft plastic and cost £1 each , from a local £1-style shop. They're not so bad scale-wise, as can be seen by the second photograph with Sid in attendance for scale.
You have to be very wary when removing them from the packages as they will go very blurry. (Not the fault of the inept cameraman at all, no sirree)
There are two distinct types here (I got one of everything that I could) from the farm sets and the construction set. The farm vehicles are obviously tractors with either different implements on the front or have a trailer being towed.
As can be seen there is a bowser-type trailer and another trailer containing a coiled pipe of sorts. The trailers were the main reason buying the tractors.
|Not as blurry as the last one|
|Boring tractor with shovel at the front (only slightly blurry)|
|Boring tractor with snow-plough type thing (hardly blurry at all)||``|
So where's the storage problem then, surely these can't take up a lot of space?
Well, no, as can be seen, here,
they hardly fill up one of those vegetable packing crates that I use for my vehicles. M
Maybe so, but this is now the SEVENTH such crate I will be filling !
And it's not just my Zombie stuff that take up space,
Here''s a compilation picture of some of the games that I have (the ones I could get to to photograph)
Many of them are older than my grown -up children and I've no doubt you'll be able to spot titles that you all have and maybe some you've never heard of.
Spot the Zombie board-game ! it's the only part of the whole composite photograph where the games weren't stored above head height !
In addition to games of course I have the usual two or three thousand book (mostly stored in boxes) and toolboxes, drawers and filing cabinets full of figures, like everyone else I'm guessing.
In other news I have finished the game I started aw eek or so ago and will probably have a write-up of the action next week. It turned into a marathon game (about 5-6 hours, split into tow parts and will probably have to recounted in at least two parts too.
