Your version is far superior.

Makes me imagine a mailed fist smashing down hard on a table as voice over man roars ARMS LAW!, the other a big old smelly book sitting in a dusty corner with a whiny voice droning what sounds like "Harms Lore"

The publishers should kick themselves.

They are indeed very pricey, however Ebay can be fruitful, Schleich more than Papo for some reason.  I have limited top price per figure to £4, I won't actually need many high grade figures as these will be used as the P.C. or the player character, along with a few suitable beasts.

I need quite a few N.P.C.'s [non player characters to lapse into full nerd speak] to make a spectacle and there are a few brands to be had at a reasonable price, blue box, revell and these beauties at under £1 each with free p&p all the way from China!

The Boston, Dublin Packet and Rajas were swooped in on by the police.  Mr. Grey could be seen on the news being led away.

Its no secret that he and Cash were selling drugs.

Let's wait and see what the courts have to say.

I 've seen them Schleich toys in the shops but didn't know the name of them.  They are done to quite a high standard and much larger than I usually paint.  I may get one and have a blast at painting over it now that my eyesight isn't what it once was.

Just cheched out Papo too, dear me they are some price.

If you are really going to do the role play/table top gaming, you may want to consider Arms Law/Claw Law.  We used to used that about 30 years ago, but as far as I can remember it was a pretty good system as far as these things go and they did cover all sorts of strange and wonderful beasties in there as well as any sort of weapon that you would be using in your games.

I think you are right to complain Rasc. This is typical of these large supermarkets - actually I cannot single one out from the other. How many of us have arrived at a checkout to be told "sorry, I'm closing this till!"
Waddya mean? Closing? Are you going home (in the middle of the day), or going out the back to have a fag?
Close the blydi till when there are no more customers to be served, not before!

Schleich, papo and cheap copies.  I'm building the arena from scratch, it will come apart for storage and be used for outdoor tabletop role play/gaming by my guests using the gladiators and the beasts.

I'll use d&d 'light' for the combat rules.

No pictures yet, but I'm going to do my best to make it a spectacle!

I would like to set in stone a complaint.  Yesterday, RB and myself after walking through town and being astonished at just how amazingly drab the place looked, had visited the sports center in HH and met up with a friend, we all had a good time, lots of fun and got very tired and hungry.  Once we had showered and changed, we decided to take a stroll over to the shops, and on the way we were deciding whether to go to Morrisons café or Tesco Caffi. RB decided on Tescos one, and without further ado, we duly went there.  Once inside, we looked at the magazines, got three lottery tickets checked and were no better off and went around and got some messages for meals later.  RB was hungry and as we had already agreed, we would go to the caffi upstairs.  We paid for our things and went up the traveler to the upper tier where the delights of the Tesco Caffi awaited us.  We choose our seats next to the least dirty table, put our bags down and went over to choose what we were going to have to eat.  We spoke to the trolley lady and she went by, then we got back to choosing our bechdans, only for the bloke at the till to tell us, 'Sorry, we are closed'.  I looked at him and asked, 'What time do you close?'  '3:30' came the reply.  I looked at my watch and it was 3:29.  Seriously! I couldn't bloody believe it.  I walked over to my bag and picked it up, ranting about customer service and bloody typical Holyhead attitude when the bloke shouted over at me, 'It's alright, I will serve you'.  Serve me! BLOODY SERVE ME! are you kidding. I couldn't even look at him I was that cross, and said, 'No thank you'.  RB said I was red in the face.  I really think I need to learn how to calm down a bit, but I still think that Holyhead needs dragging from the 1970s cr@p attitude, cr@p service, cr@p cr@p cr@ppity cr@p dull, grey, monotonous, lifeless pile of dog dung stinking attitude, into somewhere near the 21st century.
