I'm already prepping for Stargrave, by which I mean I am now contemplating the collection of a couple of hundred Rogue Trader era 40k figures I have been putting together for no discernable reason for years.

Be that as it may, I found an interesting source of cheap terrain in my local supermarket – a Fortnite Port a Fort. This was six quid and is to my mind, playable out of the box, though I'll probably paint mine eventually.

A good purchase. Wish I had seen it

Thanks. I haven't seen it in the US, but I'll watch for it at Target and stores like that.

Available from Amazon for about $15 USD:

£6.00 GBP for a pint, where do you live? Beer is half that price in the North

The Fortnite figures are available at Dollar Tree.
The fort is probably too expense to show up there.

I was just out for a pint last weekend, the first time in over a year. I don't remember how much it was, but I'm sure it wasn't as much as $15 USD!

Crab cakes, poke, and two beers while sitting outside watching the sun set on the Pacific last weekend was about $50 USD, including tax but excluding tip.

I'll see what I see at Dollar Tree on my way home from work tomorrow.
