Summer At Last

Monday 7th August 2017 - WDW

                                      WW2 - Bolt Action - Americans v Germans

                                    DBM - Tuaregs v Welsh (Tuaregs deploying)

I was partnering Al taking the left flank (Viking allies) and left centre (Wb & Cv).  We started off with 2 - 2 - 4 - 5.  So I couldn't close the left edge gap and the Cv only got one move towards the Vikings.  On the next roll Andy threw a six so his mounted forces could soot forward.  The allies did manage one five for movement but normally it was 3 or under with the opposition doing much better.  My Vikings fell in droves.  Al also lost a command to the dreaded Cm(S).  Not a good night.

Note:  HotT Lizardmen v Dwarves also took place with Andrew winning (yet again).  Couldn't add the extra picture in Edit mode - very strange!   Try to remember for next week.

Finished the Dr Who book.  The villains are the Slitheen (almost).  A good yarn and well worth the time.  Just started on the Terry Pratchett book.

Thursday 10th August 2017 - Worsborough

Whilst looking at the DBA forum I saw a notice for a model shop in Worsborough (going south out of Barnsley towards the M1).  As it's August I was free and so made the journey post haste.  I chatted with the friendly owner for a while.  He had only been there for 10 years - I must go around with my eyes closed!

Specialises in 25/28 mm figures and fantasy so not ideal for me.  Still...there are gaming nights on Thursday, Saturdasy & Sunday,
Small room at the back but might join in with the upcoming DBA competition.

Footnotes:  actually had some sunshine today - amazing!
