Well there is always an excuse to get them all out on the table at once, said the Actress to the Bishop.

As part of my going therapy I thought it might be a good idea to review some of my figure collections starting with my 28mm British WW2 Desert boys.

This was supposed to be a single box of Perrys Miniatures and a couple of Tanks, as they say mistakes were made ! At the end of the post is a picture of the to do pile so it's not over yet.

Enjoy

Bloody bleeding hell  :o :o
That is one heck of a collection. A vision in Caunter :-*
Iím just getting one of everything. Now Iím feeling quite inadequate, seeing that youíve managed to field 2, 4 or 6 of everything! Thatís quite a lot of cash sitting on that table right there...  8)
Well done Ken, and thanks for putting them all together for our viewing pleasure.

Ahahahahaha! I've had days like that.

Wonderful work. I don't see how you'll ever get it all on your table. So it must be time to build another table. And maybe a shed. Or a barn.
You'll shoot your eye out, kid!
