Every now and then I get a surprise. Here is a gift from my good friend Lewis. An original 1980s, still shrink-wrapped, box set of Grenadier miniatures. As many of you will know, these are as rare as hens teeth. Which leaves me with a conundrum. Do I open it? Inside is genuine 1980s American air. Seriously though, this gift took me back in time. I was a young teenager once again, eager to paint a heroic character for Bushido, or perhaps an AD&D Oriental Adventures campaign. It was like the feeling I would get before my Tae Kwon Do grading.
