Last Post - for a while

Today I had a few minutes of spare time in between packing stuff away in boxes ready for our move on November 1st. After all the stress and strain of these last few weeks, I thought it would be a rare moment of fun to get my 10mm scenery out and take some photos of it all together for the first time. I had intended to place it all on a green cloth, but it had been packed away - so my poor old stained antique table surface has to do as is.

Eighteen trees seemed adequate to form a small wood, but now I'm not so sure. It's a good thing they're easy to make. I'll need at least the same again to create worthwhile tree cover. In the meantime here are a few shots with some of my Pendraken 10mm models. 

The Rollesby Roughriders escort the Flegg Fencibles' armoured truck Black Shuck as it tows an 
18 pounder field gun to a new position.

The autumn sunlight plays across the clouds above the empty lanes...

 
...but they're not empty for long. A Socialist Militia convoy passes, composed of two trucks bearing supplies, escorted by the Austin armoured car Strike.

 And all's quiet once more.
 
It's nice to see the visitors to this blog passed the 25,000 mark sometime in the last week or so. Our personal situation is in a state of flux, but I hope to resume posting here within a month or so. My wife and I are on course to pay an extended visit to England over the winter months to visit family and friends. I hope to take the Barsetshire Regiment and their foes with me, and link them up with other Colonial period figures I had to leave behind in the UK. I should get a few wargames in at my old club at New Buckenham too. Rest assured, whatever and wherever I game, I'll take plenty of photos for posting here! AJ out...

All Stop

Our apartment house nightmare has deepened to the point where I don't think I'll have time to post anything beyond this. Asbestos was found in the building to add to the sewage back-up woes. It's all been abated now, but the dryer units are still going full blast in the basement. The legal shenanigans are developing further. My wife and I are too stressed-out and getting too busy preparing to move to do much else.

As to where we'll go and how quickly we'll get there I have no idea. I'll resume posting on my hobby ideas when we're more settled. A J out...
