Was bored last night.

Took my old toys out of storage and made this in a couple of hours.

Arrggghhh! That stupid grenadier! I always hated them and it seemed there was about 20 of them in a back of 25. Them and those bazooka guys who never seemed to be able to stand on their own bases.

They are from the seventies, the brand is Britain LTD. I collected them fanatically as a kid.

Jorn, you and BAVBMW seem like perfect candidates to join our group playing online RISK.

Much better than the original boardgame.
Hundreds of maps, and some good play options.

It's free, unless you want to play more than four games at a time (I'm currently in 17...)
Each player has 24 hours to make their move, and each move only takes a few minutes.
Even with 17 games, I only spend 10~20 minutes per day there... less than here.

Play online. Risk your game. Conquer Club.

Nice shots of the army men...
Pretty sure I either blew up or melted all of mine...
