A new year

So here we are in 2018. A new house, a new year and a new games room with the picture above showing the new floor.  Later this month, all the walls will be dry-walled, plastered and painted. Later will come shelving and a gaming table or tables - I'm still in the process of deciding.

One thing I started before New Years was committing to 30 minutes a day doing something war gaming related. Apart from reducing the lead pile, I find it helps with my mental health and that's a good thing.

I am hoping for an exciting year to come in war gaming!

Foot notes and a brief hiatus....

Despite the horrific dice rolling in the last game, I was very happy with the results. As a way to explore the rules, it was a success and I thought that the gatling did exactly what it was supposed to do. However, I now have to pack everything away for a while because we are moving house.  We have been planning on downsizing for a couple of years now and after a brief conversation with relatives, we decided to put the house on the market and see what would happened. In short, within the course of a very busy week, we had sold our old house and purchased a new one with that holy grail for all likely readers of this blog - a dedicated wargaming space.

While the move means no more games until at least the end of October, it near guarantees that I will be able to play more often and post more often. Where my current space requires a lot of faffing around in the garage, the new space will allow me to leave the table set up free from interference from camping trailers or cats.
