Painting update no pics   Leave a comment

Caught up on further Napoleonics painting . Got lots of Austrian skirmish bases done for general d armee . Also a field forge decorative diorama piece.

Just finishing off a unit of grenzers with skirmishers now. Deciding which unit to choose so can select the facings colour.

In the unpainted pile I now have some Hungarian Hussars and generals to paint up . Again which unit do I choose . The green coat red trousers unit look attractive but might merge with my green coated light cavalry . Light blue is out because my Bavarians are light blue . Pike grey and dark blue seem less colourful.

Lord of the rings card game   Leave a comment

Played two games of this with Mike from the unexpected journey box .

We managed to win both times . This time we were ready for the sudden plot twists and dealt with them . A great victory for the players !

Then I tried riddles in the dark myself solo and though I managed one part easily o became overwhelmed right at the end of part two and lost again !
