Sickness strikes ...

I recently posted a long list of Stoelzel's Structures that I'm planning to build, but unfortunately a bout of sickness has struck that will prevent me from completing that list ...

Yes, once more the wargamer's curse - "Ooh-Shiny"-itis has struck ... I found out that there is a wargame based on the battle of the Atlantic called Convoy available.

As this is something that I've always had a hankering to play - No, I don't really know why! - I had to (of course) buy it and all the supplements for it and some figures!

So instead of building, I've been reading the rules, ordering figures and generally getting very excited about yet another new project!

Before this struck though, I did manage to furnish most of the clinic that featured in this post - stoelzels-structures-hospital - so I intend to photograph that tonight and post on it tomorrow, before I start posting on my latest obsession.

    1. Thanks Dr B! It's highly contagious - I would recommend that you look at the piccies (should be some later today) with your NMRiH campaign figures close to hand to help you avoid it!

  4. No vaccination, and certainly no immunity developed over time and exposure, I've found more often than not, we become more and more sensitive to this little bug. ;)

    1. How very true Carl! It seems that this is unique amongst diseases - the more you get it, the more you are likely to get it!

  6. It gets us all! My recent diversionary purchase was 2hw Long Rifle, and very diversionary it is too. I empathise with your predicament.
