Battle of Britain board game

I have now eventually recieved decent hard plastic aircraft from Plastic Soldier Company for the Battle of Britain game , they are very good quality especially compared with the rubbish they tried to palm everyone off with originally ,so late delivery ,very poor quality ,very little info from the organisor then after waiting months the final insult was its cheaper retail than the kick starter price ?. Ive not purchased any ting from them since and wont again .Thankfully it didnt put me off kick-starters and ive had some great experiences since .I will post pictures later when I have some paint on them .

Dr Who and the tale of 3 Tardis ...tardi...tardises ???

Getting into the Dr Who exterminate game I was quite pleased when warlord released a Tardis , a bit expensive at £10 but it was a crucial piece for each game ,even though it is really only a scenic piece .My tardis arrived and I was abit disapointed that when it arrived it was badly deformed ,I informed Warlord and eventually they sent me freebie ,so now I had perfect one and the deformed one ,so ideas of acrashed Tardis were in my head when I spotted adie cast one ready painted with all the signage in place for £2.99 . This die cast one seems to fit scale wise even better that the warlord one which is slightly shorter and thinner .So a scenrio with multiple Doctors is in the near future (excuse the pun )
With a Warlord Cyberman them die cast at left ,the leaning Tardis centre and the replacement right 

and from above ,very happy with my latest purchase

Using the same layout as our sharpes practice game managed to get a quick 7tv game in using the scooby doo supplement .  As always great fun ,played it with the lights down to give a spooky dusk setting . The gang out to investigate the haunted barn , the spooks did what they do best and the police had to find the escaped lunatic . The gang discovered that the monsters were actually disgruntled townsfolks trying to stop big business buying their land and the cops got their man ,the ski mask and bloody macette gave it away in the end .Pesky Kids by Hasslefree ,cops by Crooked dice , police cars by Antenocities workshop, monsters from lots of creepy places and may by Urbanmatz ,Mystery machine by hotwheelz
