We made it back here, safe and sound, after an uneventful journey. Airport security is still a pain in the fundamental. I wouldn't say it's intrusive and invasive of privacy, but the pat-down guy at Amsterdam Schipol didn't even offer to buy me dinner after the going-over he gave me!
Anyways... Baggage handlers managed to damage the wheels on one suitcase, but the contents survived. I made a cursory inspection of the figures
I brought with me, and apart from one figure bent over on his base and a
bent rifle on another, there doesn't appear to be too much damage.
Double varnishing helps protect paintwork, and is well worth doing.
The Mem-sahib and I are both getting over jet lag, and are busy house-hunting. We're living out of suitcases until we find somewhere to live, so gaming is right off the menu for a while. More here once we get settled. A J out.
