Summer Is Over

The summer is over, the holiday is a distant memory, the kids are back at school and autumn is here. It really is time to get my butt in gear and get on with the massive backlog of stuff that needs to be finished, or in some cases, started.

Next weekend is Colours and I must resist buying anything. Maybe I will buy something small. Just paints, honest. And some new paint brushes. Well maybe just one new game, Kill Team and that is it, nothing else.

Okay, so I am doomed…

Too Hot To Paint

Here in Bedfordshire, it is too hot to paint models, the paint dries on the brush and the model too fast.

I am never satisfied, it is either too cold and damp to undercoat models in the garage in the winter, or too hot to paint in the summer.

But it is great weather to drink cold beer.

That is a lot of salt. I can’t get my head around that…

Alcatraz

I was in San Francisco in August and went to Alcatraz, which is well worth a visit if you are ever there.

At the mainland dock is a huge model of the island which looks suspiciously like it would be perfect for a game of something involving 28mm figures.

Dust, Konflikt ’47 or Bolt Action perhaps?

Maybe a zombie game of some description, that would work well as there is no escape from the island…
