Hi Folks, I have struggled to get anything done these last couple of days. No Physical problems, just apathy and lack of direction. It is so much easier when you know what you are supposed to be doing and can crack on with it. I have finished my reading book and can't get into a new one and my usual selection of computer games has left me feeling Meh! I shall blame the weather for now although I really know it's just a passing phase and a few day down the line and I'll have rocketed forward with enthusiasm.
That said I have finished 4 stands of casualty markers for my US Infantry PBI company, So It has not all been a waste of time. These are by Peter Pig and while casualty markers are no ones favourite things to paint they are necessary for some games, PBI being one of those. Hence the blog post title. For many people casualty markers are unpalatable but for me I have no moral issue with them. There has been some discussion on wargames boundaries of late on a couple of blogs I follow (Hi Brian, Hi Lee). And for some people this would no doubt cross some sort of line. Personally I would rather put some counters like this on the table than for example a dice (die! No Pun intended).
So before this gets heavy and maudlin please remember if you see someone without a smile on their face, give them one of yours.
All the best Clint
