I have been taking advantage of the recent fine weather to clean out our garden pond and waterfall. Its a messy and smelly job I found, but one which was reasonably straightforward once I worked out how to get down low enough to handle the bottom few inches; not so easy when you have a bionic knee! Having cleaned it out and re-potted the Lily we headed off to a local garden centre to buy new plants and related odds and ends. While Sue was paying for the stuff we'd bought I wandered into the indoor aquarium section.
Now, on past visits I've found all manner of odds and ends, most notably a 'mountain range' and more recently a 'Japanese bridge'. This is what I found this time ~
With just a little work (cue Phil, I hope) and a repaint it should make a nice centre piece for Pulp Adventure games set in Egypt and complement the various Hovells pieces and scratch built buildings I already have. I see it set into a rock face on a triangular board to fit in the corner of a 2' square table. More when we get on to it later in the year! Oh, it cost £5.99 and is a great scale for 28mm figures; large but not overwhelming! Its also very light weight, some sort of plastic by the look and feel of the interior. It gets my vote as a 'good buy' anyway!
