Decided to split this week's posting into two sections (so an extra missive tomorrow).
Sunday 1st January 2017
Managed to undercoat most of the Orcs with a watered-down "Stone Green".
The 2 exception are the 'armless' pair whose limbs don't fit very well at all. They will need some work with knife and drill, undercoating, then assembly.
Monday 2nd January 2017 - WDW
"Honours of War" - first try-out for these 7YW rules - Brits v French & Austrians - seemed OK but, naturally, we spent a lot of time pondering the rules. Plan to play again next week (so no DBM yet again).
"Honshu" - card game (x2) with John Smith winning both times
"Baroque Impetus" - ECW squabble between Cornish Royalists and some nameless Parliamentarians.
"Command & Colours Ancients" - Greeks v Persians (boardgame)
"DBA v3.0" (x2) - medievals
