Well the month has turned to December, so it’s now Christmas if you believe the advertising.
This of course means you’ll have much more in mind than just miniatures, which is probably why I’ve only got a Reaper update for you. However I have been hunting around and dug up a few news stories and rumours you might find interesting.
First off, the new stuff from Reaper.
On the 2nd December 2014 Kevin Rountree, Executive Director, at Games Workshop has re-invested 369 shares in the company at a price of 545.00p. The Director now holds 15,552 shares.
When a director starts buying shares in the company he works for you do have to ask yourself why. What does he know that makes him think the price will rise and his investment will be rewarded?
Could it be the imminent arrival of Smaug? An expected boost from the last of the Hobbit Trilogy, or have they got something else in the pipeline for the new year?
Speaking of ole Smaug, the GW version has leaked out onto the internet, and appears to be of an impressive size.
However knowing GW you’ll also need a small fortune in gold to buy one. Its resin too, not finecast thankfully. However it got me thinking about alternatives, and I found this.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies™ Smaug™ Large Scale Poseable Action Figure
Just click on the link to go to the listing. It’s a big guy too, limited to 3000 copies and currently for sale in the US for a tad under $ 70.00. You can also pose it too as it’s articulated in 10 places apparently.
Finally a teaser, which company’s like total isn’t all it appears ?
