First can I wish you all an enjoyable Easter break, even without pubs and cafes been open to sit down I have found the villages along the coast incredibly busy with visitors so I am out very early morning, walk the dog and back home before the crowds descend.
My wife is working all through Easter leaving me to get up to mischief!
Most of today has been spent sorting orders ready to post on Tuesday, but this afternoon I’ve slapped a bit of paint on the next 16 highlanders and taken a little time to look at my most recent board game purchase.
At first sight it looks very promising. High production quality as always from GMT games and not too mUch in the rules section to learn. A card driven game I think I will be able to adapt this to use as a campaign system for figures but I will know better once I’ve read the rules etc. I will report back.
In addition it was good to hear from Andy Stadden, he’s been busy during lockdown with orders for his model railway figures but he sent me some photos of the Indian labourers he’s making for me with a report that Sepoys, Havana militia etc should all be ready within the next couple of weeks. These are to accompany Stuart Insch’s next publication.
They look really good and are open to all sorts of conversions.
It’s also got me thinking about making some changes to Crann Tara and having a ‘specialist’ shop for limited production or special subjects. Just mulling it over at the moment and will report further next time.
In the meantime don’t eat to many chocolate eggs and enjoy the weekend.
