Matt Smith is coming for a weekend of wargaming, he started off this morning from just south of Bristol at 1015 hrs, he has just arrived north of Birmingham (it is now 1445 hrs), being a clever sort of chap he has worked out he has been managing around 34 mph so far. This means he is still over two hours away. My son lives near Heathrow and travel by road or rail nowadays means having to think twice on whether the journey is really necessary, it is a national disgrace.
I have got the PO organised for the bloodletting over this evening and the next two days, Matt has the information for the scenarios and knows what kind of terrain is needed but all is ready to go from my end.
I think my latest SYW battalion will be finished some time next week, so instead of ordering one new unit I have ordered two, Foot Guards (Scots) and Gardes Lorraine, a nice light blue uniform for them instead of the more normal white/grey. I have also ordered up some senior officers from Wargames Foundry to see how they fit in with Front Rank, my research seems to suggest all will be well.
More of the games early next week.
