I have been doing hobby stuff though, and one of them has been getting involved with ArmiesArmy. To that end, I've written a background document for the SinoPact Penal Forces (15mm SF penal troopers) which can be downloaded here (if you could spare the time to download and read it, I'd appreciate feedback).
I also attended Cavalier last Sunday, allegedly "helping" on the combined ArmiesArmy / The Scene stand, where I met Clint from the Anything but a one blog. Nice guy,but he lost points as he didn't buy anything from us - at least not while I was there ... :) I said allegedly helping, as I managed to arrive after they'd set up and left about 1.30, so I didn't do anything much really!! It was a good laugh though, and I would like to do it again.
Also while there, I went to find Real Time Wargames (part of the Realistic Modelling Services stand). I'd found their website last Friday and had been very, very intrigued by the descriptions of their rulesets. As a result, I took a chance and picked up their Marlborough and WW1 sets.
And they are what has inspired me to post now. I read both sets cover to cover in about 3 hours on sunday evening. That shows that they were easy to read, and they both left me wanting to play them straight away.
And I intend to get more sets (ACW, AWI, Sudan & maybe Boer) this weekend after I get paid.
Who knows, maybe I'll even get some kind of game report up here ....
who am I kidding? I'd settle for another post within 3 months ....
