Admin & Planning Post

 General Stuff....

Have been reading Thomas Holt's (excellent) historical novels this month - but there's no way I'm doing hoplite warfare.....

Unless my old H&R 1/300s come out to play....

New purchases for reading & playing/idea-poaching (below).

Anyway, I have promised myself another woodland game this week (not tomorrow; tomorrow we have sword and bill practice), so expect more shortly.
