This Week in the Duchy
Last week of term. There may come a time when the courage of men fails blah blah, but it was not this week. Just fell over the finish line after a gruelling term, feeling thoroughly gruelled. Situation not helped by The Boy Twin, alias Assault, alias The Night Goblin trooping in every night with the night terrors to join the Duchess and me in bed. I've taken to getting up at this point every night and finding somewhere else to sleep. My god that boy can wriggle. I woke up a few nights back with him grinding his little fist into one of my eye sockets, and his unerring aim in kicking me in the bollocks repeatedly is truly impressive. The Duchess and I are beyond tired.
Tamsin, after I was lucky enough to win her painting comp. Can't wait to see what she comes up with. In my own painting I've been making some headway on my Arthurians. With the combination of Dux Bellorum and Dux Britanniarum coming out, the likelihood of Saga going Arthurian next year and Westwind having a 30 percent off sale, I bought a bunch of figures from Westwind and Gripping Beast, and have started on the Romano-British.
Fran, and have added Angry Man to my list of Wargaming Beers. My mother in law gave me some hard currency, which I gave straight away to Ian at War and Peace Games in exchange for a copy of Dux Bellorum and a Bolt Action Churchill tank, which I'll get early next week. I've always had a soft spot for Churchills, and I imagine one in 28mm will be an impressive looking beast.
Tonight I'm hoping to catch up with a mate and introduce him to SAGA, so on with Saturday.
