Thank God the month of October is drawing to a close. What a horrible month of hospitals and general despondency! With number one son in hospital and too many annoying little things to contend with, hobby time has been severely curtailed.
It’s at times like this when one needs one’s friends and bless them, they were there! A big shout out to Rob, recovering from Covid. By the end of the month, I was back in gear but it’s sometimes useful to have a short break to recalibrate.
I found it helpful to grab myself a quick win to get me back on form. I hate to say that for a couple of weeks I didn’t go near the painting table. What I needed was something that wouldn’t be too onerous to get me back to the table.
Finishing off a project just gives you that lift you sometimes need! Once these were done, I considered that the Feudal French army was now done.
Once I had this small victory under my belt I could get on with the cat herding that is tournament organisation! Some wanted a hundred points L’art de la Guerre, some wanted 120, 200 or 300! And then there was scale and period! Anyhow by going back to the pals who have proved reliable in the past, our two tournaments are now good to go!
Tickets for Virtus are now available. We decided on four games of one hundred points L’art de la Guerre. So, something a bit different and a format that may attract some beginners into the hobby? So, after a brief interlude, I feel we are making progress!
Wishing you a pleasant weekend and a big thank you to all those who have rung, emailed, dropped presents around and generally been great mates in this strangest of months!
