Loot & Pillage!

Hello All,

"Loot and Pillage" was a catch phrase of a friend of mine who passed away a few years ago. He used it when our gaming group would head out to a game store or at a convention when we would descend en-mass to the vendor hall. What usually followed was spending frenzy that left wallets aching for weeks!

My wife and I decided to hit the Chantilly Game Parlor before they close their doors forever. This weeks everything is at 45% off. Next week 55%. They close their doors the day before thanksgiving. Anything not sold is going on eBay. I have been going to the Game Parlor since the mid 90's so I am a little sad to see it go away but I must admit that I have not spent as much time there as I have in years past especially since the Woodbridge location closed  a few years ago. 

While there we picked up a ton of stuff much of which we would never have bought if it was not on sale. I grabbed stuff I remember looking at 15 years ago. "Just cause" 

Here are some pictures

81 miniatures in total 
Yep that's Golfags Ogres  box you see there. That thing sat there so long it sun faded. I remember looking at it years ago (2007 or 2008) and deciding 80.00 was way too expensive for 5 out of date (even back then) ogres! But at 45% off I could do it.

My wife picked up some vintage RPG books Part 1

Part 2

I snagged a few books myself.
The Dark Eldar book was the store copy so they sold it for 15.00 and I managed to snag a copy of the new Terminator miniatures rule book.

In all we took three shopping bags out of there full to the top with stuff.  

Boxley would be proud

I snagged some Iron Golems for Frostgrave and decided to repaint them 
They were prepaints from the old D&D miniatures line.

OK but I thought they could use some help

Here are some before and after side by sides for comparison 

Not a huge difference but a little weathering and base work can go a long way.




  1. Nice haul. Are those books old '90s RPGs or early aught's D20 material?

  2. Most of it is from the 90's. Some is more recent but really nothing really after 2005.
