Well, that's the longest break from posting I think I've ever taken. Don't worry, it had nothing to do with me hating you all (I don't, before anyone asks!) nor that I didn't have anything to post (I did have some stuff, as you'll see over the next couple of days). It was simply down to me not feeling like posting. It seems that the mini-"heatwave" we had a few weeks ago had messed up my sleep patterns and I was really, really tired. Still, things seem to be better now.
So, what have I been up to since my last post?
Gaming - 3 games of FoG:AM at the club giving 1 bad loss, 1 massive win and 1 close win (if we'd been able to play another turn, I think I'd have managed another massive win but the manager wanted to close the pub!). Oh, and I've been persuaded to join the club's FoG:AM team at Derby World Wargames Tournament at the end of September. I'll be in the early biblical era pool (lots of medium foot and chariots, hardly any cavalry) - I've just got to decide which army, come up with a list and borrow figures from one of the others.
Reading - finished my first read of Henry's "The Wargaming Compendium"; read "Achtung, Shweinehund!" and a bunch of Ospreys.
Painting - I hadn't managed to get any done over the past couple of weeks as I was too drained to contemplate it. However, I've been on leave this week and have managed to get some done. To get back into the swing of things I've been working on my Koreans. I've painted the basing texture on all the foot and the artillery and have spent the past few days working on the remaining Kwang Gun foot (36 heavy weapon, 24 crossbow, 36 bow). I should be able to finish painting these over the weekend and may even get them flocked if things go well. That will leave me (for now) with just 4 bases of light artillery and the Guard foot (24 "To Bang" heavy weapon foot and 24 "Tae Gak" crossbowmen) to do....
.... until, that is, I get some more stuff to add.
As no post is truly complete without a piccy, here's one of the Koreans on the workbench:
