Hobby Bunker Covert Intelligence
 
Greetings. It has been a hot dry summer this summer so far. It seems to be a good idea and stay home and work on our hobbies. I have been doing a bit of gaming and painting as of late. Last week our main drain backed up in our little basement. We had to get a new pipe put in underground. It was a bit of a dust storm with the jack hammering but we are all cleaned up and back to normal again. Below we had added quit a few new toy soldiers due this month and some store stuff as well.
 
Above is a new French Band from King and Country due later this month. See below for all this months releases.
 
 
 
Thursday Gaming....stop by and join the big group of Magic Players. We also usually have some table top games going. We had 4 people playing A Song of Ice and Fire last week and expect a few more. We would like to see our Games Workshop "Kill Team" players make a comeback on Thursdays. Anyone interested????
