A belated Happy New Year to you all, I’m a bit late in catching up with things as I appear to have had some pretty dire adverse reaction to the booster jab, investigations still ongoing but I now feel somewhat better and thought I’d open the year with a post.
First for some reason blogger has fallen out with me and I’m unable to post comments on blogs, so apologies to Jim, Phil, Robbie, Norman, JBM, Tony,Aly etc all of whom I’ve been trying to comment on their blogs and all I get is some sort of blipvert which appears and disappears so quickly it’s impossible to read. I’m still looking as to why but have found no solutions as yet.
PayPal is now no longer my friend before Christmas I sold some figures to a guy in France, about 3 weeks later he contacted me saying he’d received a customs form for €22 to be paid he sent me a photo of the form and a clear message saying he had no intention to pay the duty etc. Another two weeks pass and PayPal notify me he’s made a dispute for non delivery of goods, I duly submitted photos of his comments, the customs invoice and certificate of posting. PayPal then asked for a photo of the label that I’d placed on the parcel clearly indicating the guys name and address ( apparently he’d said that the Royal Mail certificate of posting didn’t show his name how did he know it was for him!!! Do you all take photos of the address label. Well you’ve guessed it they found in his favour as I couldn’t produce the photo. So a reimbursement of the his money, a £12 PayPal charge for dealing with the claim and no returned good as yet not a good start to the year.
I have bought these rules
Aly Morrison mentioned them on his blog as being interesting as they don’t use dice at all but they use playing cards. I’ve only had time for a quick skim through and indeed he is right they look interesting for troops to carry out actions melees etc cards are played the better trained troops have access to more suits.but that’s about as much as I’ve picked up so far.
I intend to give some thoughts to projects for this year - that will appear next post but one Butterfly that has landed is Iain McDonald from Flags of War is going to release a full range of Reivers together with rules et and they look excellent.
