Not a lot to report


over the past few months, I have been hit with a multitude of time consuming situations which have somewhat curtailed my blogging activities.....dead laptop, dead Auntie, 2 bouts of man flu, serious DIY projects and covering shifts at work.

However, I have made some progress on stuff during the wee hours, such as

1) Decent progress on my 15mm 9th Panzergrenadiers...infantry, Panzer IV's, Pak40's. These will be for Aint Been Shot Mum...and also Bolt Action.

2) Bought and Assembled 5 buildings / scatter from 4Ground for our Skirmish Outbreak zombie game (now skirmish Rager I am led to believe due to some legal naming stuff)

3) Have been reading Pickets Charge rules at work during downtown, so have given my Peter Pig 15mm Union army a bit of a makeover....and bought some more....

4) Pre ordered the new 40K starter set Dark Imperium ( ? ), because I could only get a positive vibe from most everything that I have read about edition 8 of 40K. Have never played it before, but love the figures. Box set came with full hardback rules (£35) and 50 odd miniatures which are very nice all for £95,

5) Bought the new Indexes (not Codexes anymore) for the 2 factions in the box set...and also the Xenos Index that covers Orks...because I also bought the Ork getting started box set....gotta love Orks....Waaaarrghh...

6) Some new Battle Mats arrived from Deepcut is a Sea version with a custom 50mm hex grid and the other is an Urban type with roads and car parking to be used in the above mentioned Zombie fest.

I am sure there are other things that I have gone back to for a while, but I will update my Blog on each of the above topics now that things are back on an even keel. These updates will include piccies, but some may be showing the near finished article due to another problem of camera/phone/ipad non functionality a while all happens at once sometimes.


Thanks for passing this way...keep rolling dice
