Anyway a weeks (half term child minding) is over, at least until Easter. Warhammer 40k has been put away again and need not rear it's head for at least 5 weeks. Actually I will admit I did enjoy the last game we played as I made my nephew work out all the rules in order to stop him saying 4+ for every single dice roll! By Jove I think he knows the rules now. Or at the very least he realises that ballistic skill + dice roll has to be 7+ in order to achieve a hit. This is a big step forward.
Tomorrow is Cavalier, a local wargames show. I have made some homemade chocolate pecan and pistachio fudge for the Posties Rejects. Foolish of me perhaps but I am putting it all in a single container I'll let them work out how to split it up among themselves. I also hope they will offer it to any other bloggers who turn up as they know far more bloggers then I do. I actually trust all of them to share but I do think there will be quite a lot of banter among themselves. Let's hope there's no fallout to innocent bystanders! The road to hell is, as they say, paved with good intentions!!!
I do have a shopping list of goodies planned in my head for the traders tomorrow. Certain traders will not be attending which is a shame as a couple of them would stock the things I need. Anyway here is a few things I will be looking for:
- WSS figures.
- 28mm Cowboy (1 single figure for a game idea)
- 20mm Partisans for VBCW
- 20mm Cold war turns hot/ZONE vehicle (BMP or BTR80 )
- 28mm Witches
- 28mm dogs
- 15mm chariot (a sample for chariot race game), Essex Donnington, Magista Militum etc
- possibly a 10mm chariot for the same If I can find one.
- Osprey Book of some kind
- anything else that takes my fancy at the time
That's it for today. Hope to do a show report on Monday. All the best Clint
