Test of Honour

Sitting in my local, I've just read the review of 'Test of Honour' in Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy #89

It certainly makes the game sound really good, and as a long time Kurasowa fan, who's just got a bonus from his former employers that he'd completely forgotten about, I think I'll be buying it tomorrow!

edited: just been to the site & the pre-order is out of stock! Might be a while before I get it then!  :)

New Rules ...

As my first payday in my new job is tomorrow, I decided to splash out on a bunch of new rules from Wargames Vault today I bought:

Fayre Winds & Foul Tydes - the fantasy supplement to Ganesha Games' Galleys & Galleons naval rules

Armoured Strike - Rory Crabb's armoured warfare battlegroup rules

Target Locked-On! - Rory Crabb's jet age aerial combat rules

So plenty of reading material for me!

Westminster .....

from this BBC Story:   http://www.bbc.uk/news/uk-39363297    is this:

"Mrs May said 12 Britons were admitted to hospital and other victims included three French children, two Romanians, four South Koreans, one German, one Pole, one Irish, one Chinese, one Italian, one American and two Greeks"

shows how incredibly diverse our capital is ...

Good News!

After 3.5 months of unemployment, I started a new job last Monday.  So far everything is good, but I've still got the normal 3 mth probation period to get through ...

Although I did get a fairly decent payout from last employer, it has been rough during this period and the depression that seems to be constantly with me got really, really bad for a time ...  Money will be an issue for a while, and I've decided that I have to sell my flat as I really couldn't afford to be paying 2 mortgages - the flat and my daughter's home (with my ex- )

I have a buyer and it seems to be moving along ok (so far!) and I've moved in with my parents until that all gets sorted & I complete my probation. At that point my cunning plan is to buy another home ..

Hardly anything has been done on the hobby front during this time ... I haven't managed to accomplish anything much.

Oh well; hopefully things will get back on track over the rest of this year ... :-)
