|A box full of cool toys!|
In my last post I mentioned that I had won the Horrible histories competition held over at Small Scale World. The product review and competition has heaps more information and links about this range, and I would strongly encourage you to check it out.
This afternoon I received a package which contained a great deal of stuff. Awesome stuff. Stuff that lets you hurl rubber pigs about the place.
|The Egyptian Starter Set.|
|The Roman Starter Set.|
|The back of the Egyptian box.|
|The back of the Roman box.|
|The four blind boosters - each one contains a historical hero to add to your army.|
Inside the box was two starter sets - one Roman, and one Egyptian, - and four blind booster packets.
|Unwrapping a fiery Iceni Queen.|
|I got two Boudica figures from the boosters.|
|An unnamed Highwayman in the third.|
|And Blackbeard the pirate in the fourth.|
|The group shot.|
Each of the starter sets contains a leader, a catapult, 3 rubber pigs, two soldier figures, two peasant figures, three action cards and a copy of the rules. Also included was a spare rubber band for the catapult.
|Inside the Roman set.|
|The cards - used in the advanced game.|
|The Roman cards.|
|Caesar and his starter force.|
|The back card of the Egyptian set.|
|Inside the Egyptian starter set.|
|The Egyptian cards..|
|The Egyptian catapult.|
|Pharaoh and his starter set.|
|Both sides get this nice head spike rack and scoring system.|
|All the figures together!|
I do intend to play at least one game of the advanced rules, but the sheer joy of shooting stuff with rubber pigs cannot be underrated!
