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.

B is for Barbari! To Fight your Romani of Course!

Along with my single non-Co-Ma Roman I have a probably non-Co-Ma chap who is sometimes described as a Viking, but he is supposed to fight the Romans, and they had long-gone before Vikings were on the scene, also he has an animal's horns on his helmet which is not a Viking practice at all and - I'm sure you'll agree - pretty barbaric, so I guess when Co-Ma called them Barbari, they were right!

Here he is; he too has the helmet-in-the-mud thing going-on, but it's not as simple as it was with the Romans, he's also that softer plastic though, so probably a copy. Again, no markings, of any kind and he has a single horn like some unicorn-quiffed follower of Pan/Dionysus! Very Barbari!

Brian Berke also has one, but I suspect from the detailing of the helmet in the mud he is a Co-Ma original? Although the spike for a weapon is a bit suspect, but it may be the remains of a handle for an axe which has gone the way of all flesh? The level of detail is superb, and those horns could hurt someone! Very Barbari!

Brian's Berserker was at tea (and anyone who's read Asterix will know we Brits just don't fight Italians at tea-time!), so he sent a scaler with a couple of other Hong Kong/China-Troops, although I'd like to know where that Saracen knock-off got an American Civil War musket from? Presumably the bloke behind him! Anyway, my Berserker is now on the mantle-shelf now for just such occasions; although my money's on the Barbari; he's got longer arms and a shield!
