It starts as nothing more than an itch and you think you can ignore it. But it persists, becomes more insistent and relief is needed. So you hit the online stores and begin buying loads of unrelated miniatures. A little of this, a little of that. Searching, ever searching. Your soul slowly being devoured by a need you can't yet name. You dare not name it, for the cost is high.
Until late one night, entangled in sweat soaked sheets you are awakened by the sound of your own voice screaming "I NEED MY OWN ARMY!" Brothers and sisters, I had just such a moment and it was hell. I didn't know what to do, where to turn. I rummaged through my lead pile finding stray Orcs, Dwarves, Gnomes, High Elves, Wood Elves and Goblins. "No, no, no, no" I need something grand, something epic, something none of my friends have. And then I found it.....
My first Army.....Drake, the Garrick Army.
Would you just look at that. I haven't known what happy feels like for the last six months, now I'm ecstatic. Those dragons, those warriors and those cool beasties-all mine, all mine. My precious, my precious...
Yes, it's a Kickstarter and I've backed five of them and never felt the urge to post anything about them. But this is special, this will be my first army. I bet you guys remember how it felt to have your first army and wasn't it grand?
There are two other Army's to choose from as well. The link for the Drake Kickstarter is HERE and any questions that you have regarding game play can be answered HERE. Stretch goals are being reached and I've already earned three cavalry and they are now adding another force to each Army Box. More goodies for me!
Tomorrow I'll be posting Baby Ray's Wet Nurse and on Sunday I'll be doing a Saint Patrick's Day Post. So I'll be around all week.
To get you ready for Saint Patrick's Day, here's a message from Irish actor Liam Neeson.
