Warboot and the Week Ahead

Today, I took a journey to Stockport to Element Games as we had a stall at the Warboot. A carboot sale for wargames. They’re always a good laugh and well worth a visit. As a regular attender, it was good to see some familiar faces, sell off some bits and bobs that were never going to get used, and to pick up some bargains. I only grabbed a few as I have a lot to work on already and wanted to resist creating a huge backlog which would soon become overwhelming.

Here’s my loot:


Five Night Lord guys who will become part of my Kill Team.

Ten Raptors who might well end up being Night Lords as well – not sure what I am going to do with them as yet

The Mounted Kreig Commissar who was a limited edition miniature and is no longer available. He will be painted and sold.

So, my weekly to do list looks a bit like this:

Build, undercoat and paint Soul Wars and the commissar above.

Finish painting Ahriman and Mini Reaver.

Finish painting and sell the Trollblood Gargantuan

Sort through the boxes in the studio and see what they are.

Items for sale:


Most of the miniatures I have painted lately are up for sale here, including Eisenhorn and Slambo. I am also open to reasonable offers.

As always, commissions are open, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

As well as finishing Xerxes as a part of a miniature trade with my sister, we made it over to the Warboot at Element Games in Stockport. Usually, we can be found behind a stall however this time we went along to pick up bargains and meet up with old friends. Everyone loves a bargain and a good deal after all and I am no different to anyone else in this.

Before I divulge what look my husband and I managed to pick up, I will say how much fun the Warboot is. It brings together a lot of people and as we have been going for a while now, we know some of the other regulars too. It is nice to meet up with them and natter about shared hobby, as well as enthuse about what is happening. It is not restricted to Games Workshop either, there is usually board games, Warmachine, X-Wing and other table top RPG’s as well. It is nice to connect with people that ‘get it.’

I also bumped into an old house-mate of mine – Jason Enos – who I had not seen in a long time. Catching up on news and sharing old World of Warcraft stories was a good laugh.

I went with the intention of finding things that were not Space Marines to paint.

OK, so what did I bring home?

So, we have a box of objective markers for a fiver, two dudes on plynths who were £1, a battered and beaten up tech priest, also £1 and two Alpha Legion conversions who I thought were interesting miniatures. They cost me £10. I also snagged a Land Raider on Spru for £15 but no one wants to see a picture of a spru. Lastly, I grabbed some old metal nurglings for my sister for £10. She has an ancient Beast of Nurgle and as the nurglings were the first ever miniatures she bought, I had to get them for her – she was thrilled.

The Alpha Legion lads definitely have a story to tell. So far, I know they are in the Black Legion and that they are brothers. Nothing else has been forthcoming yet but give it time.

My mission to find things to paint that was not Space Marines did not go so well…

It was a great day and a lot of fun. If you ever find yourself in Stockport when one is on, pop in!
