Local Library Booty


Our local library was holding one of its periodic clear-outs of old books, so my better half and I battled through the snow to see what they had. I picked up three nice little numbers for free...


...which I'll get around to reading as and when.

My WW2 Western Desert project is on the back burner for a while as I've got too much else on at the moment. Once it gets going I plan to build an Allied platoon and either an Italian or DAK opposite number in 15mm. Rich Clarke of Too Fat Lardies stated 15mm is closest to the ground scale for the Chain of Command rules. I see The Plastic Soldier Company produces figures this size. Can anyone comment on their quality?

Oh yes! =) My wife and I really like the movie John Carter, and it was a bonus finding the Rice-Burroughs book.

Nice selection - they have taste. BTW, looks like a new banner on your blog - cool view!
