More Smoke Markers and Finds from Home
This evening, I finally got round to gluing the "smoke" I stained a few weeks ago onto bases. That gives me another ten markers for Car Wars. Considering how little of the stuffing I've used so far, if I were to stain all the stuffing in that one cushion, I could probably make enough markers to completely cover a 6 x 4 table, maybe larger.
Don't worry - I'm not (quite) mad enough to actually do that!
At the weekend, I headed down to Sussex to see my dad on Fathers' Day. It was also a good excuse to see whether any of my old Car Wars stuff from teenage years was still there. I was pretty sure that a few years ago, before I got back into gaming, I'd said to chuck it out as I 'd never have any use for it in the future, but there was always a chance I was wrong.
Sadly I wasn't wrong and it had all been chucked out. Oh well, never mind.
However, while rooting around in the various boxes of my old things I did find these:
Rather dated now of course, but books I'm sure many a wargamer will remember with fondness.
Now that I've speed-read through them both, I suppose it's time to hit the paint table again.
