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.

which 4" figures are these?

is the arena a bought one or are you building it yourself and if so is it from a kit or from scratch?

do you have any pictures of these?

do you intend to subject your guests to some sort of gladiator table top game whereby if they loose, you torture them in a real arena in your back garden?

In an antiques shop yesterday, I spied some lead figures.  The bloke took them out of the display cabinet and said the shop owner would be back in a minute, they were across the road getting coffee. When she came back, he asked her how much for the five of them.  After a sucking in of breath, she told me that they are Britons and are £4 each. I informed her that they are hollow cast, johilco, and I pick them up for 75p each in better condition than these. £3.50 for the five.

Well done!  Educated a vulgar brute whilst treating yourself.    The mark of a true gentleman.

I have started collecting 4'' figures with a Roman arena theme.  I plan to construct a 'pop up' arena to entertain any callers who might be interested in such things  ;)

Why are there no pictures on facebook of the lynx and someone with a gun that has shot the creature for sport and then a load of people saying how disgusting it is and that the person doing the shooting should be the one that is shot and maimed and killed and tortured and locked up in jail? That's what I want to know! Outraged, this country, some people!

They should shut places like this down.  Wild animals are not entertainers.

Another lynx from the same zoo has been killed, this one strangled in a 'catch pole'.  This primitive form of entertainment needs banning.
