German Heavy weapons
All well and good I hear you say but why 20mm WW2 all of a sudden. Well I am so glad you asked. Firstly to bolster my already existing late war Germans which are under equipped with anti tank capabilities. Additionally three members of the club are looking to start the "Chain of Command" rules by the Too Fat Lardies. SO I thought to expand my Germans a little to give me a few extra options when the rules do come out later this year. I have watched the videos on Youtube, and I think it could be a good game so bumping up my German Force was always a good option. Relfie I am told will be collecting the Yanks, (I already have a US PBI force so I don't want to start collecting Yanks in another scale) Ian will most likely do Germans and Kev was talking about Russian. I think I already have enough British to field a company 1 to 1 so a few more Germans seemed to be in order.
And that Is why I have painted a few Germans in 20mm this week.
I have also been asked to put on a game at a local show in September. As it stands I will use the game from Broadside this year, as that option takes all the pressure of me as I already have everything done. So as I am a "Ninny" I have decided to start a new game board as well in the hopes that I will have it done and the figures painted and everything ready to rock and roll by the time of the show. This new game board will not be for BBIB, but a 28mm board for Crooked Dice.... Yes I know I have ADHD for wargamers! This means that the summer months will be busy for me, making and painting and sorting out figures. As such I think I have got my wargamers drive and motivation back so I intend to blog post every other day again. This should force me to push the board forward. As I type I am waiting for parts of it to dry out so with very good luck I can show you what's going on by Tuesday next week.
Now for my really good news........ good for me, it won't effect you at all. My job has been "At Risk!" for the last 13 months. I have tried not to let the thoughts of it come onto the blog too much, but it has been a weight on my mind. Anyway cutting a very long 13 month story short. The NHS now consider my job to be "safe!" Which is a huge relief and is probably while I again feel motivated to blog more frequently.
So until Sunday take care and hope to talk to you all soon. Best wishes Clint.
