I'm off looking after two of the kids this week (Jamie's spending the week at an archaeological dig) and today we took a trip to Halifax. We didn't do anything much; we just strolled around the town centre. However, I did find some interesting bargains in Toymaster and an Oxfam shop.
The Airfix pontoon bridge for a fiver was a nice find. It'll probably end up being used in Tcherbevan for next year's Crisis Point: Andreivia game (as will the Hornby fuel pump and traffic lights).
The giant ape is a little over 10cm tall. With a better paint job he'll make a great feature for a Pulp Alley game.
The cyclops is even bigger. I took one look and thought, "That's a Huge creature in Song of Blades and Heroes terms. For less than three quid he's a must have.
Altogether I've come back with some really useful stuff for less than twenty pounds. Not bad.
