Saturday 21st January 2017
In the morning - I was occupied elsewhere so couldn't attend WDW. A pity as the only game was a 30YW Baroque scrap between the Swedes and the Spanish. A close-run thing with a Pyrrhic (and posthumous) victory for Gustavus.
Late afternoon - in search of the lost shop - found it! Normal resources didn't help but Yell.com showed a page and the hint that my target was down a slope. Go down North Baileygate, after junction with Spink Lane but immediately before the turning to Pontefract (Monkhill) station and find "Major's Flooring" (on the left). Between the 2 buildings there is a downwards slope. M & L Models is to the right at the bottom. A specialist in 28mm plastics.
This Week - some long awaited releases:
Osprey's Renaissance rules are out at last. Obtainable from the usual suppliers (e.g. Osprey or Amazon).
I have been reading Bob Cordery's blog for some time now. Decribed as "The Portable Wargame Rules for fast-play wargames on gridded tabletops". Now published by Ellington Books in three versions - hardback, paperback & Epub.
(scroll down - on right - links to paperback & epub versions)
Personally I don't like the Epub format so used one of the online file converters (http://www.zamzar.com/convert/epub-to-pdf/).
In spite of the tank on the front the rules cover a much wider time frame. Looking forward to reading this document.
