BAG OF BITS - The Carrier Bag Project (Part One)

On Sunday I headed over to the Penkridge Wargames Tabletop Sale. I had booked a couple of tables to get rid of some stuff that I've accumulated over the years and that I don't think I will be using now that I have opened The Unit. Most of my projects are related to future games etc. Had a really good morning and sold a load of stuff but as I was so busy I didn't really get chance to have a good rummage through all the stalls. I did pick up some 28mm terrain pieces for future games at The Unit and I'll post more information on those later this week. However one thing I did spot was a carrier bag on the stall opposite with a label saying 'Bag of Bits'! So when I had a minute I popped over to have a look but didn't get long as a customer at my stall appeared. What I did see where a few bits that looked interesting including some Warhammer Bretonnian horses which are always useful for Italian Wars etc. So after some hard haggling I managed to get the chap down to £3.00 from £5.00. Result! So today I have had a chance to have a look at what I have ended up with and I have to say I am rather pleased. Aswell as the horses there were quite a few 28mm plastic Landsknechts, 28mm skeletons and enough figures to make three groups for Rogue Stars. 

So I thought it might be interesting to document my progress through the carrier bag and see what I can create.  


  1. Looks like a RAH-66 Comanche there too which would be useful for Future Wars projects. I bought one (albeit in 6mm) after reading Tom Clancy's Debt of Honour.

    1. Yes it is a RAH-66. No rotor but that should be easy enough to sort out. Maybe even convert it to something a bit for SciFi.
