Interesting blog post by Scotia Albion about a recent series of YouTube videos by Tom a young wargamer talking about budget ways for a young gamer of getting into historical wargames (as well as Sci-fi and D&D). For example:
This past week four years ago I branched out from my regular main Man of TIN blog to start my occasional Pound Store Plastic Warriors blog, covering the joyously budget plastic figure gaming end of my toy soldier hobby.
This week I shall be working on these baker’s dozen figures as space pilots, having rewatched Star Wars Rogue One on DVD and still working my way through four series of grungy Battlestar Galactica (2004 version) available free in the U.K. on BBC I-Player.
Four years on from starting the blog, a bag of cheap plastic tat with conversion potential still gives me as much joy as new metal or more expensive plastic gaming figures. I enjoy the wonky out of scale playsets and accessories as well as the sometimes oddly worded packaging.
Pound Store Plastic Warriors blog – It all keeps me happily in touch with my inner seven year old with never quite enough pocket money!
