While I blog only to keep a record of my wargaming activities, I am aware that, to my utter astonishment to be honest, that people follow said activities. OK, I do try to make the entries somewhat interesting and write in a style, I hope, which are entertaining to read - if only for myself.
The long span in between has been a result of a computer problem, now fixed, and a dearth of anything to write about. Personally I find this distressing as my hobby is an important part of my activities regardless of its priorities in life. Or in other words, I rather paint than mow the lawn. However, being also a rational man (I think so?) I must do the latter before the former. That being the case, work and life has prevented me from much in the way of hobby activity. Thus the dearth of posts.
However, last night, I participated in a "Dragon Rampant" game. Regular readers will no doubt be aware of my current love of the Dan Mersey series of "Rampant" rules having resurrected many of my dormant collections to feasible "armies" of the tabletop. While I know the basics of the game, the fantasy troop types are beyond my comprehension and so I had a tough time trying to decide "is it better to attack that unit or this one?" or "how tough are those things?"
But the system is fun, if not frustrating if you can't activate, or in my case often, throw my 12 die to get only one hit etc.(the majority of rolls being of the 1 or 2 category!) But quick and entertaining. Which is the point.
As I did not bring a camera ( I am that out of practice!) I had the GM forward a couple of shots
ChrisO's figures. Very well painted I might add.
