I have recently spoken with Alan Perry, one of the sculptors behind the original big hat range alongside countless other sculpts we grew up with , including a lot of the first waves of the LOTR minis.
He, and perhaps his brother Michael, may be up for doing an interview for our humble little zine!
Now caveat: this isn’t a dead cert like the Priestley one. I already had a dialogue going with Rick around a game of his that I play and write fan rules for. This is a different situation. It’s completely out of the blue and they are going to see if and when they can fit us in.
@chitzkoi got their contact info for me and I messaged them last week. Alan said he’d read the the Rick interview and it brought back some good memories and that he and his bro may be able to answer some questions for us. He also said the big hats were half a lifetime ago so he’s try his best but he may be a little vague!
He’s got a busy couple of weeks so I’ll send him
Some questions 2-3 weeks from now.
So - just like last time gents. What would you like to ask these members of wargaming royalty about?
