Back In The Land Of The Living...Just!!!!!

Greetings one and all. Apologies for lack of updates over the past 2 weeks. I had planned to post some pics of painted models, as I had several awaiting completion and had planned to do those over the holiday period. Sadly, a flu virus intervened and utterly wiped me out for 10 days!!! Truly, 'twas a mighty and most virulent virus, made worse by the fact that we were on a family holiday at the time...Great!!!! :-(

Hopefully, I am now on the road to full recovery and I hope to resume some painting and gaming next week. Next posts are likely to be the final practice game of Dux Bellorum before Salute (gaming that one on Monday evening) and I do hope to eventually post some pics of some Colonial Sikhs, a Saxon standard bearer and a new bunch of of course the next Dux Brit battle, where I attempt to salvage an iota of pride and throw Mike's Saxons back from the walls of Linnius...That last one is coming after Salute.

Talking of Salute, if any of my esteemed readers are frequenting the show this year, please look out for the Newark Irregulars banner, as that'll be where you'll find me demoing Osprey's Dux Bellorum rules. Please do come over and say 'hello'!!

The flu has been rather bad this year. I know several people who have had it twice this season already. Fortunately I only had a mild case once.

Sorry to hear that a dread lurgey has wiped out your Easter hols.

Salute - alas we cannot make the show this year due to a combo of family events and work duties - hey ho.

Hope it all goes well.

Look forward to seeing some of your new figures. I'll be painting a few Galadhrim for my youngest soon.

Great to hear you're back on your feet, Andy. I had the flu last autumn and it was hideous. Took me a couple of months to get obver it properly - so take your time, mate, and don't try and do too much at once. I'm sure you'll be fine, and hope to meet up with you at Salute next Saturday - I'll be sure to drop by the game!
