Update. With holiday pics.

Been a while since I’ve posted… real life has been a bit hectic, stuff going on that took up my attention. That and I’ve been on my travels.

I spent a great week in Athens, nice food and company, saw a few of the sites.

The Archaeological Museum is facinating- well worth a day’s trip. The Antikythera mechanism is simply mind-blowing (but sadly being behind glass didn’t photograph well). The Cycladic art was another personal favourite. As my photography skills are pretty limited I’ve only added a few pics or the more military related things.

Recovered items from the Thermopalye battlefield:

Go tell the Spartans stranger passing by that here, obedient to their laws we lie.

And finally Hadrian’s triumphant arch:

The Acropolis is a magnificent place, and the new support Museum most impressive too:

Sadly the enjoyment of the trip was tempered by the death of my cat whilst I was away. She had had a good long life, but had started to suffer in her final few months. I had looked after her for the last 5 years, before that she spent 15 living with my parents.

Gaming wise I’ve not been up to much. Been too cold for the shed (when the water for brush cleaning purposes freezes I tend to leave it). So instead I’ve been generating stats for the 2 Hour Wargames family of rules; this will allow us all to play more modern games using our toy collections.

Some of the reference material I've been using.

I’ll see how long it takes them, and with Ed’s permission I’ll see about uploading them here. Either way we should have fun playtesting the stats to make sure the balance is right.

Cheers,

Pete.
