It's All A Bit Silly, Really

Good afternoon,

Recently I headed off to camp with my class. I got back and discovered that I was entitled to a Camp Bonus of $NZ 19.95 per day so...yay! Just under $60 was coming my way. Sweet.

Having played a Star Wars Edge of the Empire RPG session the Friday night beforehand wherein two of my players were role playing Bothans for which I didn't have the miniatures...I got a little carried away...

$NZ 80 later (opps! I miscalculated the exchange rate between En Zed and the States!), I got a bunch of Bothans, Humans (including Denagar...only to realise that I'd already had one. Opps!), Rodians, Trandoshans (including Bosk - @ $NZ 18! Opps!), a double-up Twi'lek (opps!), a double-up IG-88 (opps!)...and Orar Ergalo!

So now I've got miniatures for folks who want to play Bothans...


(...though I can't really see anyone wanting to play a Gonk Droid! I really need some 3PO units...)


...Jeoff the Jawa...




...and Wookies.

I'm just missing a Gand or two to complete the PC races in the Edge of the Empire core rulebook.

As stated above, I also added to my Bounty Hunters... small pile of [nominal] "security officers"...

...and one or two to my Fringe Dwellers.

These Tatooine Dwellers had been collected some years before.

Oh, and not to be out done, I also have a small number of Imperials that my PCs may encounter from time to time.

I also have a comparable number of Rebel soldiers. You know how it is. You think, hey, these Wizards of the Coast figs are relatively cheap second hand, I've always wanted to wargame Star Wars...I even made some rules for them. Played a few games, but, well...

Still, now I've got a heap of toys to RPG with!
