One of my readers suggested that I post every week. I decided upon Thursdays. Well it's 0049 Friday but that's close enough:
Monday - DBM - Chris put up Fanatic Berber versus Andy's Western Sudanese. A slow business with both sides playing cagey. Chris was waiting for his Spanish flank march to arrive (he's still waiting). The game ended in a draw with the Berbers being close to a broken command.
Tuesday - turned out my Renaissance boxes to see what forces I could field for" Irregular Wars - Conflict at the World's End". Looks like I have enough for an 'Aztec' type army or a Mayan one. The Europeans can be fielded as Conquistadores, Colonial Spanish or Colonial Portuguese. A few more bases of general-purpose 'natives' would be useful so I based up & flocked some slingers & warriors.
Wednesday - woken up at an ungodly hour so decided to get my computers sorted out. A whole day to install Win7. Reminded me of a poem called "Reinstalling Windows" by Les Barker.
Thursday - so I got on with my painting didn't I? Had a surprise visit from a friend with accompanying mutt. Spent the day walking around the local reservoir and socialising. The best laid plans............
