I will be on the lookout at St. Helens next week for some suitable farmyard bits and pieces or some other such bric a brac for the courtyard, maybe an old tractor. This leaves one more building to do, a burnt out shell, this will take more effort as I need to do at least one exposed floor with wallpaper and I want piles more debris lying around, to this end I have bought some large plastic sheets for bases. I am told Colin is going to do a church at some point so I shall get that then call a halt.
I want to do a series of linked games, a mini campaign if you like in the near future and am bouncing some ideas off my friend Matt who is already involved in just such an exercise in the Italian theatre in '43. I hope to get something off the ground by the end of the month.
I mentioned St. Helens before, the Phalanx show is on next Saturday and the Last Valley will be there, I am hoping to pick up the last of my hedges from him, I may also be tempted by another couple of models, not sure.
I have completed yet another map project, well it is at the stage where the author now checks my work and comments on corrections, mistakes or amendments if there are any before I send it to the publisher. Not a very exciting book map wise but one with forty years of research behind it and I suspect many more volumes to come. What is it, it is a history of the Luftwaffe from its beginnings until the end. Tomorrow will find me back on the Somme and after that galloping across the steppes with Genghis Khan.
