Want to the know the most expensive way to build ten Silver Helms?
Silver Helms have been a gap in my army for donkeys years. I truly wish I had kept the original ones I had from the 4th edition launch! If any one has some they want to get rid of please let me know?

Now it is done I am pleased with it, but what a faff! It isn’t perfect as some of the internal… Continue reading Something Different – Yamaha XV1000 Virago
