As I progress through my "career" of figure collecting I've noticed that some times the finds that make me the happiest are the little ones. This has certainly been the case with the recent acquisition from the old Bretonian range. As you know, starting with my painting of fifth edition models I have really fallen in love with the old Bretonian range. Lately the third edition figures have been one of my collecting goals. Thanks to a couple of large overseas purchases I have been able to knock out most of this range fairly quickly. However there are some portions of this range that are extremely hard to find and if you do see them they sell for crazy money. This is particularly true of some of the more rare war machines that Citadel made for the third edition Bretonian's.
This Saturday though I received a little package from a fellow Bretonian collector here in the states that really made my day. Amongst some other gems it contained a Bretonian swivel gun! Based on its size this is not an impressive figure but it's rarity has made its acquisition a special moment in my collecting. I've never even seen one of these on eBay...so being able to trade for it and not even having to pay for international shipping is just fantastic. Anyway here it is in all it "glory!"
