This Week I Have Mostly Been ...

... making up the Zundstadt Ruined City Bundle 0 that I got from Blotz recently.

My intention is to use it as a'arena' for Fragstorm, a variant on Nordic Weasel Games' Fivecore game. I got it from Wargames Vault but it's no longer available there ... don't know why ...

Anyway, it uses the basics from Fivecore to create an arena game, that looks like a lot of fun.

Not advanced enough for pics yet, but I might even start painting something for it soon!

Well ... that happened ...

In my last post (19-Oct-17!), I announced the arrival of the 2 retired greyhounds ... well unfortunately that did not work out and they went back after 2 weeks.

Whether this coincided, caused, or was because of, depression (always lurking) I don't know, but it came back to plague me in the last quarter of 2017, eventually leading me to take most of the month of December sick.

During this time, I did virtually nothing hobby-related spending most of it trying to escape the misery by (re)playing games on my PC which then proceeded to die on me ...

So, the end of '17 is best forgotten I think.

However, '18 is looking up (I hope!).  I've got a new PC and started hobby stuff again, even managing to start assembling some Charlie Foxtrot Models' buildings I got at the Exeter show (in Feb 17!).

In 2018 I hope to (in no particular order):
* go to Wessex Wargamers Winchester about once a month
* actually play some games
* get my Chain of Command Brits & Germans to the point I can play one of the Pint Sized Campaigns
* thin the lead mountain with some realism regarding the un-started/finished projects
* post on this blog and The Wargames Website more often (don't know what that means right now, but at least it's a goal, of a sort!)

Enough from me for now - I hope everyone out there had an enjoyable holiday season

New Arrivals ...

Well, not got much done hobbywise - yet again!  Been getting ready for these 2 to arrive on Saturday:
They are retired greyhounds who will (hopefully!) help me as much as I help them ...

I had a houseguest this weekend, so I didn't really feel able to do the unboxing of Rumbleslam ..
To be honest, I wasn't sure if Sinbad would try to eat the contents or not!!

Sinbad is my sister's dog who I was looking after as she was at a wedding

Oops! I did it again ...

I was searching for samurai mdf buildings as terrain for Test of Honour the other day, when Google gave me TTCombat's website. After a quick look around, I found Rumbleslam, their game of fantasy wrestling ...
I had previously come across this game during its Kickstarter, but had to cancel my backing due to a lack of funds ...

Obviously, now I'm employed again, I had to buy it and I picked it up from my local post office this morning.  So far it looks pretty good, and I'm looking forward to unboxing it tonight!

I just wish I'd done a bit more google-fu on it, as I see that The Outpost are selling the game for 20% less than the manufacturers are!
