Can't go wrong for that price. Is that fig in a good shape?

I'm still waiting for a refund from a seller who forgot to ship a (rather expensive) fig, it's been over a week :(

Bit dusty and had wrong pants on, but that was an easy fix. Printed tile and other details are spot on, as opposed to the first one from my childhood:

Walther P22

It's a semi-automatic .22LR pistol. Ten shot clip, all sorts of nice safety features to keep me from blowing parts off my self. Good times.

Took it to the range the day after getting it and put 70 rounds through it(I didn't have a lot of time to spare) and it shoots like a dream. I need to adjust the windage sight, but it's whatevs.

Pew-pew!

Tesco are selling Lego sets for reduced prices right now, so here's a heads up for fellow Brits.

Yesterday I got 2 x Monster Hunters Werewolf sets just for the car. It was reduced at Tesco for £12.99, which is about £2.96 cheaper than even Amazon UK (Amazon UK price £15.97, RRP is £18). Everything else just went in my bits boxes.

I also got my latest Brickarms order via MinifigForLife (UK dealer). The lime green transparent chaingun they sent as a freebie is now welded by the Series 8 Santa minifig. :mrgreen:

As well as that, I received the Gunslinger minifig from Series 6, and he has become a unit commander.

I now have two full units of minifigs:

So, I pretty much love that you have all these rough and tumble types joined by a sherlock and that dapper chaffeur fellow front right there.

They're by Brickarms - http://www.brickarms.com/ - UK supplier is MinifigForLife - http://www.minifigforlife.com/theprostore/main.php

Yes, they are rather nice, and I already need more (they're full of guns, naturally).

Thanks guys. I wanted to do something completely different to either hard Sci-Fi or Mediaeval - something a bit more rough and ready in nature. I guess I am tired of uniform troops from Warhammer 40,000 - Imperial Guard Armoured Companies and Sisters of Battle do get a bit same-y after a while.

Note that on each stand the guy/gal with the RPG7 has a pile of 1x1 round plates stacked near by. I thought it was an easy way to keep track of how many missiles they have each. The commanders have their own weapons, but the rest of each unit has 1x RPG7, 1x Rail Gun, 2x Spaz-type combat shotguns and 2x Blue Trans chain blades distributed amongst them.

I have not worked out any stats whatsoever yet. I will do so later, when I have time. I have a photojob later on today in London so probably won't get started on that until Tuesday (tomorrow I will be too busy sorting through images from today). It's another march by the Kurdish Diaspora in Edmonton, London, and we're likely to see at least 5,000 gather for it. What fun! :D
