I was in the shed the other day and noticed that a box that was resting on the floor had got a little damp. At this point I’ll point out that due to a quirk of micro geography that side of the shed where the box was stored is effectively 90cm underground, due to the shed also having a rough unsealed concrete floor I try to raise everything up but had neglected to do so with this box… It contained my old GW and Science fiction figures from the 90s. Having not looked into the box in over 10 years and not wanting to lose the contents to damp I pulled it free and took it inside for further investigation.
This is what I found:
This pretty much all that is left of my formative gaming years. What was quite telling was my lack of any emotional attachment to it. I was more excited by the SF/PA figures and floor plans- I can see gaming potential there, but the army I fought through high school and college with just left me cold. Even the Necromunda stuff I had enjoyed so much… guess it’s going to be hawked off.
