The past couple of weeks have been really busy for me, preparing for the new semester, for my year of student teaching, fighting with the university over financial aid (student loans), and being impoverished whilst awaiting a paycheck.
BUT, I did shave my beard and mustache off; I have to "look professional" for student teaching...career building I think they call it.
I also received an order of 15mm Essex Napoleonic French and Russians. A small order, really, just to fill out a few bases for DBN armies. Several of us in the local club are going to be participating in a Napoleonic campaign soon.. I hope soon.
I also received this game http://compassgames.com/show/product/no_peace_without_spain which looks like a good, fast, game; a game that may also be used for running a WSS campaign. I am hoping to play it this week and post a review of it to go with a battle report.
Oh, I also received this http://www.spartangames.co.uk/games/dystopian-wars rulebook, as well. One of my sons has expressed a real interest in playing it, so I expect to build a couple of fleets for him and I to battle each other with. That is, once my finances are sorted out.
I should get a few posts in this week, to round out some painting news, battle report/game review, and other things.
And as a final note, my 17 (almost 18) year old painted his first miniatures last week (15mm Napoleonic Russians). He did a good job on them and I hope he enjoyed the experience, in spite of developing a pain in his neck...but that is because he has never used those muscles before.
