This is not a post where I show off a big hobby purchase.
This is a post where I talk about a theoretical “if I won a lottery” hobby purchase. Kind of.
I originally created this blog to talk about my Horus Heresy era Alpha Legion army. Sometimes I write about terrain for my games, or orks. Or hobby projects.
In this entry I’m going to be a bit selfish, and tell you, dear reader, what I want: I want a big haul. A big, joyous, resin Forge World haul. Of possibly epic proportions. It’s one thing to make a small purchase from a Forge World. Maybe a squad of infantry, or a weapon upgrade set. Or a single tank. It’s another to receive a giant box in the mail containing a year’s worth of projects.
Recently I found out two things. One, that Forge World sells virtual gift vouchers. Two, that these vouchers stack- which makes complete sense in hindsight. Part of what this does is makes it possible to slowly accumulate, over time, a bigger hobby budget just by virtually getting myself Forge World vouchers. This is where I admit that I’m a little greedy and have been dreaming of making a very big purchase for my Alpha Legion. By “big” I mean multiple things that my space marine army has been lacking; a Spartan Assault Tank, some jump infantry, a Termite Assault Drill, and so on. The very first “black book”, Betrayal, because it has a lot of background information on several of my favorite legions. I’ve included a helpful graphic:
The red is where I’m at right now, roughly. I could make all of these purchase piecemeal, bit by bit, but I think the fun would be in a bigger order. Again, “Big Haul” is the name of the game. I totally admit that is me wishlisting and going “Man, I would love to be able to buy more hobby things”.
I’ll get there one day. In the meantime, I’ll keep dreaming. But if you ever want to help out, well, I do make dice bags. And they’re pretty great. You can find them over at Greyed Out and that not only helps me pay the bills, it helps to further the hobby that helps me relax and find fulfillment and joy in creating.
Thanks for reading. See you next time.
