Anyway, I am staying upbeat as much as I can(although I'm getting fed up waiting for news from the hospital now) and so I have been managing to pop along to the Monday night games. I don't last too long there, but it's nice to get out for a bit. Mostly we have been continuing an ongoing Twilight 2000 roleplay that we do for about 4 session each year. They started this game long before I joined the group (about 20 years ago) and we are still running about trying to get back to NATO lines. It's a laugh to get back to it though. Last week we did another game of Blood age as Zob had a meeting to go too. I left before it finished and was winning at that time so, despite the results once Zob came back and took over for me, I am claiming it as a win. ;)
I was taken out for a day last weekend as Nathan and Panjo took me up to Reveille in Bristol. A pleasant local show, although the set up is a bit "old school" in lots of small rooms as opposed to the usual "everything in one big hall". I picked up some tufts(to replace the ones my wife threw away accidentally), some Gripping Beast Dark Ages Warriors and some Perrys light cavalry. We were only there a couple of hours but it was a pleasant trip and we had a good day. I bought something else but can't remember what it was right now?????? Comments about age, senility and other such abuse will be ignored!

Right, that's it for this post. I will put up another one in a minute with the painting efforts on it. Back in a sec.
