My recent sale on eBay of my Epic 40k collection turned out to be quite, well.... epic! Among other things I was able to indulge myself with a fairly large purchase of Flintloque rules and figures! I ordered on Wednesday last week and the package arrived the Wednesday afterwards. I collected it this morning as it was (sensibly) sent by signed for delivery.
The box contents.... The Catalucia starter set, 3 limited edition characters, the Grapeshotte expansion rules and a small, but very heavy, pile of lead. Much is camouflaged against the background by very careful and thoughtful wrapping of individual figures in bubble wrap. The contents overall was very well packed and I was very pleased with the care taken!
The starter set box shows what you get inside. The side of me which likes things to remain perfect was disappointed that the box was quite flimsy and the paper cover was not a full card sleeve and taped on at the back.... but then the sensible side of me remembered that, once opened, I would never put the figures back inside again and so I cracked on with opening it!
Well, what a pleasant surprise! Inside the box was robust polystyrene containing figures wrapped in bubblewrap. Perfect packing! Also included are the rulebook, two dice, bases for the figures and a double-sided sheet designed to get you started with a guide to the figures and three scenarios.
Other bits. Two ten sided dice (the game uses a percentage based system). Bases for the figures made from MDF. Different from the usual plastic slotted bases and I quite like them.
Below are the Limited Edition figures I got as part of my order. I'll go into more detail on these in future posts.
I started to photograph the other figures, but the light wasn't good enough for close up work, as you can see by the Todoroni infantry above. Still, plenty of time to blog about all the rest later.
And just to show I didn't order figures at random, here is the very useful planning diagram I put together to aid my purchasing choices.
And on that note, I shall leave you! I'm looking forward to much more Flintloque related blogging in the near future!
