Anyway, onto the sinning, which mostly happened on Saturday. Despite my proud declaration that "no more new topics would be undertaken this year", I appear to have failed miserably coming away from Triples with not ONE but TWO seeds of evil planted firmly in my wargaming brain.
Here's the weekend swag. And the excuses which may or may not be necessary.....
|First up was this haul for my Jason & the Argonauts project|
Not strictly speaking a 'new' project as Paul Next Door & I had talked at length about doing it. I'd opted for Jason while Paul was for all things Arabian with Sinbad. The plan was to try out the 7TV rules '7th Voyage' from Crooked Dice, They've really captured the "Harryhausen" feel we were looking for. The slightly unforeseen part was buying the other set of rules pictured, but they're really pretty & contain LOTS of lovely pictures of the painted Foundry http://www.wargamesfoundry.com/our-ranges/ancients/world-greeks/argonauts-and-mythical-heroes-collection-bcwg016/ range which I'll find quite an inspiration. Watch this space.......
|Addition to an existing game. No sin here.|
|Cracking source material for CoC & IABSM|
|21st Panzer finally get their correct supports for Benouville|
In through the door & straight to Stafford Games (who now have bags in the same livery as Harrods so I'm told by the lady serving - FoW sales must still be strong!), where I picked up the "must have" bits of the day. I felt so much better :^)
|Difficult to tell because of the reflection, but this field is lovely!|
The aforementioned 2nd new project hasn't ACTUALLY been purchased yet. but the thought alone is wrong as it will surely happen (just not probably until the end of this year). After picking up a parcel for Rich Clarke from Empress Miniatures, I stood gazing at the BEAUTIFUL Spanish Civil War range, something I'd been holding off on for a while (and cursing the many CoC Espana lists published around Christmas) . I cracked. I knew I would. Imagine my surprise when it turned out that was what Rich's parcel contained too!
I'm not from the Catholic side of our family. Just as well. I'd be mumbling "Hail Mary's" for the rest of my days.....
