Connections are good!

Sorry to have not posted so much here recently, but since the convention I have had precious little time to collect my thoughts and present them here.

I was swamped with three work situations coming to an end all at the same time, thus needing video work to be processed as fast as possible (eating all my processor time and making sitting at the computer typing in more words less appealing).

The next week was spring break and we had 4 extra young people around all the time, though it was fun connecting with them and challenging some new minds.

Finally this week started with surgery for my wife and I was left doing double-parenting for a few days while she recovered, adding to that was a need to do a book display with her that was not noted to me earlier and so we were rather rushed in getting it all together and hauled out on the morning in question.

Enough excuses, that is now done.

I have been contacted by Dennis, whom did the A.C.W. game at Salute (see pics below) and since he may have time to get away this summer we may finally have him guest host at my game table! YAYYY!

I shall have an opportunity to showcase another keen miniature gamer to the other gamers here and perhaps challenge their contention that I am just a lone nutcase!

Anyway the snowfields are all cleaned now (and I have a pile that looks like a zamboni just tossed it out from the arena) and the troops are all re-flocked for summer pattern. From all that action only 4 mounted troops are damaged, 3 of them commanders (one was damaged during painting so came as no surprise when the join gave way). There were no infantry units damaged! 4 of the 'disorder' markers are also in need of repair and are sitting now on the painting table awaiting my attentions.

Sadly they will need to wait at least another week...sigh.

I still have company taxes to process and then a new computer system to get organized along with re-designing my offices so that my eldest son gets to share the desktop.


In two weeks I will be SOOOO ready to get back to casting and painting projects!

Hello Murdock.

I hope your good lady is better and that everything went well for her. You need to look after the memsahb 'cos you know she looks after you and allows you to indulge in your hobby.

good news for the games as well.

Ahhhh . . . welcome back!

I echo Paul's wish for Mary's improved health. Good to hear about Dennis' plans. Do you know what ACW rules he plays?

Dennis uses Johnny Reb III, or at least that was what he was using at the convention.

Drat, we played Johnny Reb way back (before they thought of future versions), but I was hoping that it would be something like "Fire and Fury", which I've heard lots of good things about; but have never played.
