 Scored a copy of the old Prince August DE3 Air Elemental on Ebilbay...

 Used to have it back when I was a teenager. One of my favorite air elementals - it has a lot of character. I hadn't realized until recently that I had close to a dozen Prince August minis when I was younger, which was interesting. The FLGS never carried any Prince August fantasy stuff, so the only places I could have gotten them would have been the short-lived Eric Fuchs hobby shop in one of the local malls or the toy store at a local tourist place that carried one small rack of miniatures.

I did not acquire $10k last night in the final poker tournament to win the money for Vegas and the World Series of Poker Main Event but I did get 3rd which gave me $1680 to use in a smaller even up in OK.  Maybe I can turn that into a $30k+ win and feel better.

I wish I could acquire $30k. Or even acquire the chance to acquire $30k...

I was away at a convention in Maine over the weekend, and one of my eBay packages of vintage miniatures was delivered.  This is going to take some work. :unsure:

 

IMG_2101.thumb.JPG.36cc358727bd293c8d8fed957bda6fdf.JPG

 

One of the things I bought it for was the ancient Minifig goblin wolf riders.  Back in the day, the catalog picture showed two goblins on one wolf.  I managed to find a cache of 18 wolves a year or so ago, and had 6 others, but only three riders for the 24 wolves.  However, I was a little startled to unpack this box and find that, after setting aside a few axe goblins with broken weapons, I had an even 100 riders. :wacko: I guess most of the wolves are getting two, and a bunch of Prince August home cast wolves are going to have Minifig riders, if they can be made to fit.

The pocket of scruffy Minifigs Swords and Sorcery "skeleton men" (skull-headed, at least) proved to have 122 figures in it.

There were also a few mounted Nazgul minus their horses, some of the old goblins I've been painting, and more.

 

While I was assimilating that, the mail showed up with TWO Kickstarter packages, the new Oathsworn Burrows and Badgers set, and  a delayed set of Viking stuff from Acheson Creations, with half a dozen buildings, some other resin terrain pieces, and 66 miniatures.  I'm thinking that I'd better not order anything new for a good while...

Well, sometimes you don't have a choice about old stuff; now or never...:blink:

 

But I'm going to avoid looking at that auction site for a while. Until it's time to start selling the leftovers, at least.
