Another week, another lack of gaming week. Bah humbug and all that. I missed Monday nights conclusion to the Chain of Command game as my wife and I went to Plymouth Theatre Royal to see Warhorse and very good it was too. If you can get tickets to see it then I recommend you do. Cleverly done and very entertaining to watch.
Tuesday to Thursday I was sick as a dog with some sort of virus that seems to be doing the rounds. Not pleasant and it exacerbated my stomach problems so I spent several days in close proximity to the toilet. I was meant to be going to the Devon Wargames meet on the Saturday, but felt like death warmed up so gave it a miss. Probably a good thing as I didn't want to infect the others.
Painting took a hit again, which seems to be a common thing of late. I did manage to get the Shermans I put together painted up, so I now have 4 more Shermans to go on ebay, while the American force in the cabinet have been joined by 5 M4A1 Shermans, to give the Germans something else to blow up.
These next pictures are a comparison shot of the BF plastic Sherman V(left), Peter Pug Sherman(center) and PSC M4A1 (right). The BF Sherman is bigger, but not too badly compared to the Peter Pig one. The PSC one is smaller but I prefer it personally. Please excuse the painting on the Peter Pig model, I painted it many years ago and it could really do with being stripped and repainted.
Anyway, that's it for now as the in-laws turned up yesterday and I have to go and make nice. Catch you all later.
