Got some news that paint-maestro Steve Dean's place was broken into and a bunch of wargaming/modeling/hobby items stolen. Please see this thread and the description below:
On the night of 1st/2nd January my good friend and well known hobby painter Steve Dean had his studio broken into and many things stolen in what appears to have been a targeted burglary.
Could Lead Adventurers please keep a look out for the stolen items, on Ebay, on FB selling groups, at the bring and buy at shows etc etc. IF you have any information please let Steve know, or me and I will pass the info on.
As you can imagine Steve is finding it hard to remember everything that has gone but here is a list that he has put together ...
" Cannon EOS1200 camer with a decent macro lens added and the standard lens that came with it. It will stand out because looking through the veiw finder it looks like the lens has been badly scratched (big dark lines), but it's just were I screwed up cleaning one of the mirrors (takes great pics as you've seen)
2 sets of War Medals from my Grandads. Standard service medals plus one having the Italian medal the other having the greek medal and a 3rd royal tank reg cap badge.
REAPER - too many to list from all of their ranges. Some in blisters, some in bags
RACKHAM - again too many to list, again some in blisters and some older ones in bags. The ones in bags have the code number written in pen on the bag.
There was some of the big older trolls and the goblin set with the deep sea diver and pirate types (can't remember what it's called)
Games Workshop - Older Empire figures of all types. 40k vahallens Warhammer Quest Character boxes.
Citadel - Some really old pre-slotta Elvish Cavalry and foot/mounted chaos knight sets stand out, but again too many to list, Clerics, Wizards etc you know the type
Lots of other stuff that I'll have trouble listing, you know how it is. I'll add stuff as I remember
FOW two big box sets for vietnam , the US one has boats and infantry, the Veitcong also has boats, civilians and classic Vietcong. 2 Huey Helipcoters in 'speciall order' boxes
FOW the newer plastic infantry sets, Russian, German and British. Some resin tanks - all nations. Some LRDG stuff. Small box of Free french Inf+ a gun, the German/Partizan set with the dog handlers etc.
Essex, hundreds of them. Mainly Medievals - Polish, Hungarian, Crusades, Arabs, Ottomans. Also, Babylonians, Boars, Zulu war brits.
Khurasan - Various Sci-Fi film related figures
Again Lots of other stuff from Blue Moon, Rebel Minis that might be unusual to see over here.
A few random kits
Also stupid things like my glue gun and all my reading glasses.
and a whole bunch of Heroclix plastic pre painted figure which would fill 2 standard supermarket carrier bags."
I've only dealt with Steve on occasion (he allowed me to use some of his pictures for my Old West game, etc.) and he seems a right nice guy. Hope somone can find something and link this back to his stuff.
