Take me out to the ball game...

Well, with warmer weather coming on, it's finally time for me to set aside the Byzantines and indulge one of my other interests--baseball! I was very excited when Caesar issued their set of baseball players (Sportsmen Set III) last year, but I somehow forgot to pick up some the other week at Cold Wars. Fortunately, in this era of online commerce, this is not a major obstacle, and when I got home from work today, I found a package waiting for me with a couple of boxes of the long-awaited figures.

Obviously the first team will be painted up in my own Baltimore Orioles colors (Go O's!) but I haven't decided yet who their opponents should be...

(It's a pity Caesar hasn't seen fit to release a similar set of football players--Ravens vs. Steelers would be the obvious choice there...)

Anyway, hopefully I will have the first few of these painted and ready to show off by the end of the week!



  1. Very cool. I wonder if you could make a skirmish game out of them, Bloodball style?!

  2. Use them with 10mm as giants for Hoards of the Things.

  3. April Fools! Though the joke is a little tough for people not famillar with the level of sports appreciation at our house...
