Many of you will know that despite some positive statements in my last post I lost my Mam on the 15th April and saw her cremated on the 27th. So the year hasn't really got off to a good start.
She will be missed greatly as she was my rock and always said it as she saw it, however she also told me yu have to get on and live your life so now the formalities are over and most the paperwork is done its a slow return to the work bench.
The week saw figures arrive from Mark Allen and Steve Allen so on the bench getting based and flagged is Wolfe's regiment and the two Swiss regiments de Sallis and de Courten all of which should be getting a run out in the game I;m presenting at Partizan on the 21st May.
He also has a pop at the big companies, the possible demise/usefullness of magazines and how very much like me wargaming is our life blood.
As a hobby its been with me since I was 13 and I could never see me giving it up, its a social hobby and one which regardless of where you are you can devote time to. It's also kept me sane through some really tough periods in my life - an escape.
Anyway from now - hopefully a lot more positive posts.
