Unpacking the "Big Rigs"!
Having time to set up a big game is tough these days when work gets more intense as the Spring semester reaches mid term, but I was determined last weekend to set of my 40mm ECW stuff just for the sake of seeing them again!
I worked up a simple set piece that allowed all of my collection to be deployed on the table. My 40mm stuff has reached about the maximum my 8x5 table can hold so I've come to a sort of end point in the collecting except for some more light guns and such.
I know that if they do get sold I'll probably start a new ECW collection in 28mm at some point, as I am doing with colonials. At least I enjoy painting so selling a big collection has it's up-side.
But still, these guys have given me a lot of pleasure and they were the original reason I started the Lead Gardens blog, so I have a good bit of loyalty I'd have to overcome to part with them...and at 40mm they do command in the eye candy department! But like a shark one must always keep moving to stay alive...
