More charity shop finds!

I know these posts sometimes smack of gloating, but I just want to share my excitement with the people who will appreciate my good fortune.

Check out what my £4.50 got me:

Sorry the photo's a bit blurry, but it's 18 White Dwarfs from 1989-90.

In particular, these issues have lots of cool terrain and vehicle modelling templates. Handy! Not to mention a huge chunk of Marienburg, which will come in handy, and lots of lovely painting stuff. 

I also picked up a surplus copy of #91, which I already have and will sell on (cheap!) to further defray costs, as well as a very battered copy of the Adeptus Titanicus rules, which I have no real interest in but come on, 25p! And some Fields of Glory books for a pal of mine and some other miscellaneous wargaming books for my bookshelf or resale. Overall, then, a good haul. 

One of these days I'll write about how to be a good frugal gamer, but for this side of things the solution is just "be someone who buys a lot of secondhand books and have a wife who likes cool old clothes so you spend a lot of time in charity shops. Oh, it helps if you work near a load of them." You just kind of swim along like a whale, passing tonnes of seawater through your baleen and filtering out all the nutritious krill. 


  1. Why do i never find stuff like that in charity shops? You lucky bugger!

  2. I'd like that Wd 91, how should I contact you?

    1. Send me a PM on LAF, or drop me an email at gonzohistory AT gmail DOT com . I have a big pile of back issues I'm selling on behalf of Cambridge University Roleplaying Society (who were clearing out their old library) so let me know if there's anything else you're looking for and I'll see if I have it!
