It's Monday, so it must be London

I managed to get my final entry into the LPL on Wed (photo to follow once the competition ends on Sunday) before heading off the Germany and, then, a weekend in Mansfield care of Tempus Fugitives' Tyrant of Babab campaign weekend.

Here's my commander (and alterego of the last fifteen years - Durfast Spiritwolf) and some Wolf Scouts

It was a great event as always with Maelstrom Games providing many advantages over WHW - not least on security of toys. I still missed the old venue, but the management of GW seem intent on tearing their business apart. Despite the strong emotions some have towards them, I think that GW have been an asset to the hobby, not least in attracting many new players and developing some talented sculptors. Hey ho!

Anyway, back to work (and the dissertation) before I can treat myself to dipping brush in paint again later tonight ;-)

Cold turkey

School boy error no. 1 - not taking a piccy of nice shiny HYW men-at-arms before leaving  home and e-mailing them in for the LPL round 9.

School boy error no. 2 - leaving painting tray in Blighty during first phase of move to Denmark because 'it was only for a week and herself had priority in any space in the car as she was staying here'. So, in addition to withdrawal symptoms, now have only two nights to finish off round 10's entry.

School boy error no. 3 - there is no number three (apologies to Monty Python).

School boy error no. 4 - bringing so many wargames magazines with me that I can successfully procrastinate during the time I should be working on my dissertation.

School boy error no. 5 - oh and start a blog to provide even more options for procrastination.

School boy error no. 6 - and then there is t'internet in general.

School boy error no. 7 - and several wargames forums in particular...

Stand by Vikings - it's payback time!

I'm now safely ensconced in Aarhus, Denmark and for your delight and entertainment - Sir John Cornwall and friends:
