I thought I’d only been away from the site a week, but I see its nearly 10 days !
As ever time flies when you’re having fun. Or rather, not, as most of the last 4 days have been.
I cracked open a box of Samurai of mostly Citadel vintage and decided to flog them on e-bay which was a lucrative experience, but rather odd. Some of them went for very high prices, and others didn’t shift at all. The market for figures these days is very hit and miss. What I have noticed is that the very popular ranges sell for little, and the less popular sell for more. Presumably due to the availability of the popular models and the more obscure being rare. That trend is bucked by iconic figures being much sought after.
Anyway, by selective pruning I emptied two more boxes of figures, and flogged one of the boxes to JP. It is always sad to sell off figures, but as I reflected, I had used maybe half a dozen Samurai once in a battle 30 or more years ago. Sometimes they just need to be got rid of, especially as I when;’t even painted them. Wargamers joke about the lead mountain they accumulate, mine is an entire mountain range. So far in the last 2 years I’ve downsized by 10+ boxes (the old GW cases) and need to go for another 5+ in the next month as I am likely to move house.
Now its been cold here in the UK, so late one evening last week I was concerned that BlackJack had not made his satanic presence felt, so early in the evening I lit the fire, and noticed a bulge under the sofa skirts again:
Hmm, a cat sized bulge, for a cat known to play underneath the sofa skirts ?
Even with my flu befuddling my brain cell, I thought this more than co-incidence.
Yes, he’d been asleep under there all afternoon and into the evening. Forget the cushion/throne, forget the blankets provided…sleeping on the floor under the sofa was the latest “thing”
The flu BTW was picked up at a conference I attended last Saturday with my Councillor hat on. Though its obviously doing the rounds, as my parents came down with it a few days later.
