Reading my subscription copy of the May "White Dwarf", I learn that "Games Workshop's monthly miniatures magazine" is 30.
Seriously, 1977 was a tremendous year. "Star Wars" wowed the movie-going world. The first "Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set" (blue box) hit the shelves. As did the mighty, mighty Atari VCS. Blue Oyster Cult witnessed "Spectres", while Rush bid "A Farewell To Kings". Tolkien's "The Silmarillion" was posthumously published. And Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor ruled the telly.
Meanwhile, a young Australian boy went to kindergarten, mastered his Malvern Star Dragster and dreamt about dinosaurs :-)
