I bought a box of Sigmarines for ten dollars

Yes.  Yes I did.

I went into town to-day to pick up a painting and buy some more superglue.  The hobby shop closed down, sadly (NOT the game shop, to differentiate)  but I found out from the framers that the glues and things were still being sold by A Very Nice Shop called English Bob's,  a UK import shop generally specializing in sweets and whatever you'll find on their website.

I found my usual cyanoacrilate and the Shop commented on how expensive it was.  I said I was used to expensive and mentioned I did GW.  He then said he had tried to stock GW, but he was going to have to get it in dearer than usual so it wasn't worth it-- he then produced a box of AoS Liberators and said he would sell it to me for ten dollars to get it off his hands.

I said "Yes please" and smiled, but inwardly I flipped my shit.




That's 5.80 pounds sterling or 7 US bucks.  My pot of glue was more expensive than the sigmarines!

And here's proof they weren't recasts! 

Thank you for letting me share this;  I'm sorry I'm blowing my trumpet a bit, but I've never had this happen to me before, and it's so awfully exciting!  And thank you very much, Bob-- I'm sure that's not you name-- you definitely made my day, and I'll make very sure I return some time!

Bye bye for now.


  1. Delighted for you. Hope you do something fun with them.

    1. Thanks! I was thinking either BA or Grey knights...
