There was an earlier day in my life when I had plenty of time and no money for my hobby, now I have money for my hobby and not so much time. I never stopped playing with toy soldiers "much to my mothers chagrin" exchanging the sandbox, green armymen and rocks for Donald Featherstone's book Wargames, AWI soldiers from the back of a comic book, dice and rulers. Those early games were great fun and very exciting. Eventually I graduated to more complicated systems, better miniatures, headaches, rule arguments and basically not a lot of fun. I thought about ditching the hobby altogether. I realized recently that I like a good game of toy soldiers. I like the look of toy soldiers and I like the way a simple game plays. I like the trusty d6.

So here's the deal and it is for real!

It was $189.99; this is a $160.00 savings---YES THAT'S RIGHT I SAID $160.00 SAVINGS! It is not on the web site it is from the flyer only. USA Call 1-877-414-0434. Tell them from the April 2007 flyer page 58; Zvezda's Assault of the Fantasy Fortress; item#ZV8820; $5.00 USD USA shipping and 95 cents insurance. I bought 3 sets for less then $100, two will be presents.

You get a Zvezda castle about 15"x15" with 4 towers and a Gate, over 70 figures (medieval foot and skeleton warriors), bolt throwers and a catapult, seige mantlets, ladders a dragon the rules and a bunch of other stuff!!!!! The castle alone is worth the $30. You can find a picture of one of the wall sections in the posting below with some 28/30mm figures for size comparison.
