Cheapie Toys Have Failed Me!

Alas! The cheapie psuedohistorical toys I found will not suffice for giants. They had some Powhatan Indians (now that's specific!) that might have worked for hill giants, except they weren't large enough, being barely 1.25" tall themselves; they also had knights and pirates ... but no vikings. How can you have cheapie pseudohistorical toys without having vikings? Scandalous.

So I bought a boatload of prepainted plastics from WotC in the after-market. I managed to get a couple of good deals via Troll and Toad and eBay. And I'm going to keep looking for those vikings ... they've gotta be out there somewhere!

If I don't want to paint, I sure as heck don't want to sculpt then paint! ;P

Bloody Vikings!

I'm working at the local hobby store part time to fill in.

We have a $8.98 "Bag 'O Vikings" (maybe 30 pieces). The average figure is 3" tall and they have some painting but are either silver or black base soft plastic (Think green army men). There are horses in the set also.

If you get the chance, could you note the manufacturer? :) I'll check that railroad/modeling shop over in Fairfax for them.

Thanks! :)
