While I was in Lincoln I indulged another habit of mine, that of visiting the local Games Workshop store when I'm in town. When I visited last year, James Monk was manager but he's now at the Bromley store so I was welcomed by new manager Brian Purchase.
It turns out that Brian's rather a fast painter - all the miniatures in the Dark Vengeance boxed set over two evenings after work - and proudly showed off the labours of his efforts. I love the new Helbrute figure, and it's surely only a matter of time before one of these appears in one of my stories somewhere.
Thanks, Brian, for the warm welcome, and see you again next year. (Probably.)
