Goblin Trader, Madrid aka Land of Plenty (WOW!)

At the beginning of May I’ve been in Madrid for 5 days. It was our short stop between Mexico and Poland. As we never have been in Madrid, we’ve done lots of sightseeing with my wife, but as you can probably imagine my thoughts were concentrated on something completely different. For the first time since October 2014 I was in the city with so many shops, clubs and generally wargaming communities scattered around. After long stay in Central America and Mexico, Madrid seemed to me like a promised land. The best what I could get during that tine were few gaming shops in Mexico City, but comparing to European shops, their offer is limited. So, I was really anticipating the visit in a hobby store in Madrid, especially few of my paints were out, and also I was crying in despair for new brushes. I knew I don’t have too much time (I would be happy to visit all of places on wargaming map of Madrid:) and I need to choose at most two. My …

Gamers Den – hobby centre in Cancún

Cancún was my last place to stay and visit on the American soil. This Monday, after 6 months of travelling, I finally got back to Europe (Madrid, Spain to be exact). I almost forgot how it is to live in Europe – I missed it so much;). I already visited two stores here in Madrid, but before I give my insight from Spain, I’m going to write little bit about Cancún‘s only hobby store – Gamers Den and little wargaming community there. I’ve visited Gamers Den last weekend with high expectations. First – I was super exited about meeting gamers from there. I turned out, it’s hard for me to stay outside community for longer period of time. Of course, if there’s no perspective on the horizon – no shops or clubs around – I do not suffer hard, but when I found out that in Cancún there’s a gaming club of Warhammer Fantasy, the anticipation was hard to handle. Second thing. I was hoping to buy new paints (my Kislev Flesh was disaster! I’ve been watering …

Finally! Warhammer Shop (in Mexico).

Last week I have visited two wargaming shops in Mexico City. About first visit in ‘El Duende’, you can read in one of the previous posts from February 2015. Even though, I was enjoying ‘El Duende’ so much – I met fantastic people so passionate about Warhammer 40000 – it wasn’t  very fruitful for me personally as a collector.  I was in need of new brushes, new Citadel Paints, and most of all – new minis. And there was nothing for me. My list of unpainted miniatures (dated 20.02.2015): two Skaven Stormvermins (metal 5th Edition) one Island of Blood Plastic rat Ogre Wolsung Skirmish Steampunk Game Oak & Shield Lady Ellendeanne Wolsung Oak & Shield Sir Zachary Fiercebatten III with his hounds Not so much, as you can see. I will be travelling across Mexico for about 2.5 months. I needed more models to paint. And, you know, I’m addicted to it – I need to do this as often as possible. Preferably every day for at least 1-2 hours. Some days I’m able to …

Wargaming Shop Experience in Mexico, DF, part 1

I’m having nice time in Mexico City. I met ‘long time no see’ friends, I ate some nice food and of course I painted. I’ve finished Skaven Ratling Gun (I will upload photos later) and I’m about to finish my last batch of Skaven Stormvermin ( I need just few more hours). Mexico City is also most important place for me, when it comes to my painting/travelling enterprise. During last two months, my brushes became a disaster, few of my Citadel paints ran out, and what most important – I have only few miniatures left to paint. Definitely not enough minis for remaining time in Central America (3 months). I desperately need some hobby shop around. And it happens that Mexico City is only place on my way, where such shop exists. Actually I found four shops in Mexico, District Federal area (thank you, Google!). I wanted to visit them all, but due to the lack of time, I was able to check only two of them. First shop I visited is called ‘El Duende’. …
