Oh Gosh it's Hot

Happy Friday to you all!

The sweltering weather here in the UK is making it hard to devote time to hobby matters. It's fair to day a number of our community are suffering. But my hobby projects have also been brought to a complete standstill by work being staggeringly busy with a number of things all coming in at once. Hot sleepless night and that mean I'm pretty knackered right now and very much looking forward to a restful weekend. If I get some painting or terrain done, all the better!

Anyway, a fortnight ago (wow, that long?) Samulus and I managed a great Sudan game using Black Powder. I had put lot of painting hours in before that to get it looking as good as possible in the time available. A real success despite it being our first try with the rules, but the dramas will be the subject of a much fuller write-up soon. In the meantime, here's a little teaser of the day's action.

What's that on that there hill, eh Perkins?

  5. Normally the wife's in bed by 9.30 giving me at least 3 hours painting time, this mini heatwave is certainly slowing production.

    1. Is that the readout of the Awdry-matic long-range weather forecasting machine?

      Oh dear - 2013 may turn into a year of painting blight for UK bloggers!
