Default Anyone want some free scouts?

I notice several people are planning all scout armys and it occurs to me that I still have five metal close combat scouts that I have no use for.

A Games Workshop rep gave them to me some months ago. I've never like the models, nor am I overly keen on scouts in general (let alone close combat scouts), but I smiled politely and accepted the gesture. They now languish unsused in my bits box.

If anyone would like them, PM me your address (or your work address if you're not comfortable sharing personal details) and I'll put them in the post for you.

Hmm free scouts and have Tom Norman know my adress. Or no free scouts and sleep easily at night. I'll take the latter thank you very much :P

J/K I don't really care for scouts either

Very nice of you Tom,

I highly recommend you reserve them for a poor soul who has a tiny army and is starting out and needs a little help in that department. Otherwise, I highly recommend you convert them into arbite enforcers and hang on to them because if you like the imperium so much, one day, you'll be tempted to build Arbites. You can always turn them into bronze objective markers! :P

Cheers!

I'd have them but find someone at your club who is starting Marines and give them to them... easy way to make a playing buddy as well.

Heya Tom,

How nice of you to give away free scouts. I have got plenty myself so I suggest you do what Mal said.
Give it to someone who really needs it or you can construct something similar I have done:



Make a nice objective marker statue! How do you like that?

I'm afraid I don't have a gaming club as such, I play almost exclusively against my brother and he has no use for Marine bits.

I like the objective marker idea, although a power armoured Marine is more of an iconic image...but perhaps I could make them into casualty counters?

Cheers then fellas.


EDIT - By the way, nice statue Stam. I like the crow and the barbed wire.

Wow, I'm impressed. 6 posts and only one of them actually asked for the scouts (sorta).

Tom, do you order your marines or is there a store near enough to you that you go to get your models? The reason I ask is that, even though its basically just you and your brother playing against each other, if you do go to a gaming shop to get your minis, you might be able to unload them on a player there. Of course this might also get you some games against others that aren't related to you.... ;D .
