Quick Update...

Not a Lot - But still here...

Major works in the house, end of the season fighting, two weeks of Autumnal sickness/bugs, unpleasant shoulder pain/issues, paid work getting in the way of life, and a serious remodeling of my "Play Room" - inc. new shelving and a new cupboard to store my board games - apparently some sixty or so when I count them (oh dear... Mainly SPI, AH, West End Gamed, GDW etc. etc.  Partial pic.) - have left little time for figure activity..






















Have been musing over/dipping into/preparing for/telling myself off over:

The (delayed) completion of the Parthians.

Gathering figure proxies for Buffy the Board game (Yes. I know..).

Working on using cards for campaign "exploration" systems (after playing "Bear Valley" - which comes with some useful, pretty cards. I may design some of my own, then Tally Ho for the printers).



Inspired by  a few games of "Comrade Korba" (all the fun of the inner circle of Stalinist Russia); thinking about adapting (aka stealing) the idea for card-driven "politics" to act as a background for Ancient/Medieval figure/map campaigns...

  


A few games of SPI's PRESTAGS (mainly "Chariot" and "Viking") have helped during the Scutari Hospital phase of the last few weeks, as have some jolly, old films (Pic.  Yes, that IS ian Carmichael in WW2 German kit. Movie included Richard Attenborough, Dennis price and Christopher Lee in same) and 1980s TV...



The gang will be having a "Colditz" games evening at the weekend..

Oh, and I had a birthday (shudder).. 




The final plan for the Play Room is to have a permanent "Campaign Table" which can be left set up while still leaving space for the "Fighting table". THEN the fun can restart....

Watch this space... I hope to be back in the solo saddle proper by the end of the month....
