About Me

I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

S is for Spyglass Miniatures

Currently in 'The Works' (same place that did the clip-together tanks a while back), you local discount book shop, are these female Elfish (?) warriors at 99p.

The guy has an up-to-date blog (spyglassasylum.blogspot.com) but I can't find her there nor on the website (www.spyglassminiatures.com) so guess she's some sort of old stock clearance or a retail experiment?

Very good quality sculpt and finish, get 'em before they're all gone!

Bought a couple of these today.49p in our Works store. The company that made them appears to have gone bust. Very good figures.

That's what I thought, a fine casting and for a few pence only!

I also bought two, one to paint/base one to keep mint.

Funnily enough, the Book Exchange in Wantage (Ox/Berks/Wilts border) currently has weathered pewter wizards at about 50p, no name, job lot (he's selling them loose) which look like the sort of touristy things Westair make!

Thanks for the comment and stopping-by.

I have one of these elf minis. I believe it was a promo mini for a magazine, though which mag I can't remember.
