I love perry minaiatures. I have tons of their American Civil War sets and have been eyeing up the war of the roses sets for my empire army. I just wish my local store wasn't an actual GW so I could use them there.

I was looking at the Foundry Renaissance section with a mind to making an Empire army. The only things putting me off are finances and the fact that the landsknecht cavalry horses are unarmoured. All metal fantasy armies rock. Just like old times again.
Looking at the new Sigmarines, I was also thinking that the handful of Dark Angels I'm currently assembling on 32mm bases would make amazing proxies for them. If they get some kind of chariot I could get some landspeeders to proxy as well. The DV company commander, which I got at a sale price of £2.50, already looks really medieval, with that 2-handed relic blade and a combi-plasma poking out from under his robes.
In five years time we find out that the submarines are really a secret chapter of space marines that have been trained beyond the edge of the imprium and are being sent back in time to defeat chaos so that the horus heresy never happened! The eldar comondeer the realm gates, transport the elves to 40k time and proceed to conquer the galaxy once more before being eaten by tyrannies, don't worry though as the emperor comes back to life obtains an all powerful warhammer from the fantasy realm, travels into dark space to find the original tyrannies queen, beats it to death, returns calling himself lord revan but then reveals he is actually an eldar.
