What next?

Having just finished another 16 unmarried zulus I am pondering what to do next; looking at the lead/plastic mountain the options are:

64 plastic married zulus plus 2 lead zulus.
6 policemen to finish off the Northumbria Police force.
8 British command figures from Anglo-Zulu war
Blackadder WWI character pack
Assorted Kings of War and Warpath sprues
Assorted Celtic plastics
The Contents of the Project Pandora: Grim Cargo Game.

Yes if you've read this far then you can probably guess what arrived in the post today!  I was really impressed by Dwarf King's Hold and love the look of the Veer-Myn so I found myself unable to resist it at the discount price that Wayland Games were offering!  More details to follow once I've got it painted.  Don't hold your breath though, work is mental at the moment, I'm away next week and every ounce of spare time is getting taken up with the Wife's business.  Well that and typing rambling witterings on here!

Support Iron Sky! An update

I emailed the distributor yesterday to ask why they were only doing a single day release.  I got the following response:


We recognise the concerns of the makers of IRON SKY and appreciate the support of the fans. We ourselves have been huge supporters of the project since day one, coming on board in 2009. 

We feel this release structure is very much in line with the spirit in which the film was made, being available both on the big and small screen almost simultaneously.

We have seen all of your feedback and contrary to the opinion of a few we are not trying to 'kill' 'bury' or 'dump' the film. Revolver is still in discussion with the exhibitors about extending the cinema run. Come out on the 23rd May, show your support, make IRON SKY day a huge success and lets keep the film playing on the big screen!
Not the greatest but I noticed their mention of similar timings for large and small screen release and so had a peek on Amazon.  It turns out that the Blu-Ray and DVD will be released on 28 May 12.  So rather than an 80 mile round trip to a cinema plus the cost of tickets and popcorn I will instead being buying the blu-ray version (that also has a digital copy) and spending the money saved on some lovely shiny new miniatures. 

Anybody know where I can buy 28mm space Nazis? :D
