"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|
|My wife picked up some vintage RPG books Part 1|
|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.
