Just a brief continuation of this week's Mini Monday, where the Miniature Building Authority came to Treefort Games.
I brought down my Corner Townhouse (Product ID 10109A) that I bought a few years back at Games Plus in Mt. Prospect. According to the MBA collector's guide, only a 140 of these were ever made.
Jim Elmore, one of the MBA's founders, explained to me that my model is particularly rare--earlier versions had red window shudders and doors, not green.
And now its even more rare with his autograph.
Meanwhile, some hobbits were defedning a village. (The LotR minis weren't brought by MBA, but a local wargamer). There were all kinds of wargames going on.
This fellow was kid-bashed together.
Here's the other to figures--Fatty Lumpkin and the Gaffer. Very well painted.
Gothmog--both mounted and on foot.
Both Kirk and Jim were really friendly, and they do make quality buildings for the price.
I find it a little amusing that people are arguing about the $50 price tag for each of the upcoming corebooks for 5e. The average cost of these buildings are around that price.
Gaming is a luxury hobby, folks. Just face that fact.
