Back of the box.
Around 1989 my friend Myron gave me this boxed set as a gift. I think he felt I could put it towards my Barsoom project. Being a stickler for accuracy I put them aside.
A few years back, my wargames club had a Kris Kringle and I contributed these as I felt they weren't going to ever get painted. The following year I got them back at the next Kris Kringle. I took that as a sign. Since then they have taken on a new meaning as Myron died in a car accident. So it goes.
Still not painted...
While playing Ligny last Saturday, Craig is talking to Simon about some latest find/purchase which includes guys mounted on parrots or something. He has no idea what they are. No one else does.
I go over and have a look and admire the flying guys and the mounted guys and then... Hey, I recognise that figure. Yep, at least some of them were from the Space 1889 range.
So, perhaps these figures have taken a little step forward.
What really perplexes me is how to handle radium rifles in a basically sword fighting game. That has been the real block.
