For me not posting yesterday. Well, partly anyway - I've got to share some of it for having posted about my temptation to give in to the dark side and go for FoG:R, which gave Seb the opportunity to tempt me into going to CLWC to look through the rules and the army lists, and me to succumb to temptation.
So, last night I went to CLWC, had a delicious curry, a couple of drinks and a few enjoyable hours chatting and watching others play games. I don't feel too bad about it though as I had spray-primed the 60 riders before heading off to work.
Unfortunately, on the way home I started feeling a bit off-colour and when I woke up this morning was aching all over, shivering and had blocked sinuses. As a result I've not done much today, just a bit of drybrushing - the gunmetal grey on the command group riders and the final weathering/highlighting on the Chumbondas. Hopefully I'll be in a better state tomorrow and able to make good use of the weekend for painting etc.
Did I mention?
Succumbing to the temptation of FoG:R? When I got back from the club last night I ordered the rules and 3 army list books (Trade and Treachery; Wars of Religion; Duty and Glory) plus a couple of the Osprey Essential Histories (Thirty Years War; English Civil War) books. Luckily for me, they aren't due to ship until 13-18 April so it is quite likely that I will have completed my Sarmatians and Scythian allies before I make any decisions on which FoG:R army to go for.
I should be able to get plenty of painting done over the Easter break - a whole 7 days off work! (I work for a university - they give us longish breaks a couple of times a year as compensation for having to work with mad professors. Or maybe just to save money as they can switch off the boilers, saving fuel, for a few days?). I'll probably get my Alan and Scythian light horse prepped and primed ready for painting over the next couple of days to ensure there is plenty ready to go under the brush during my Easter marathon.
