If you didn't feel old already, did you realise that this year is the fortieth anniversary of Monty Python And The Holy Grail?
And now for something completely different...
The wonderful craftsmen at Studio Miniatures - one of the foremost producers of zombie apocalypse-themed 28mm wargaming figures - has launched a new Kickstarter to fund a line called Medieval Mayhem.
A range of "knights-versus-zombie" miniatures, ostensibly representing the employees and guests of the Medieval World Funfair and Theme Park at the time of the zombie apocalypse, they are actually perfect for use in fantasy games - bearing no signs of modern accoutrement or armament (such as shotguns and chainsaws).
They also bear a more-than-passing resemblance to certain geek-favourite film characters.
The Kickstarter passed its funding goal in the first day and is already barreling through its stretch goals faster than an African swallow carrying a coconut.
Check out the campaign's Kickstarter site to see the different buy-in levels and the rewards on offer, as well as the additional characters coming via the stretch goals.
And remember: it's only a model!
