No ACW photos.

Unfortunately some of our club members couldn't make the game Friday night so we played a couple of Ancient games - Republican Roman vs. Successor Macedonians, and Anglo-Saxons vs. Norman - using Armati rules. Now I have to say that while I like Armati rules for ECW I don't like them for ancients. Something about them just doesn't gel with me. I played on the Norman side, and lost, which was quite a satisfying result (I really don't like Feudalism in any form and the Normans were the worst exponents of that species of government). I'm just hoping I can escape Stateside before the club's planned mass-Armati games vs. the Mid Anglian Wargamers comes to fruition!

If it is something you really don't want to play, then don't. Offer to take photos or just 'remember' somewhere you have to be.

I'll do just that, but I might escape yet, Jeff. There are plans to put on a really big ACW game sometime in the next 28 days as we have the use of the largest room in the village hall.

As an aside I'm planning also to go to the Partizan show in Newark, Notts. on the 24th May. It'll be the last big convention I'll attend here in the UK for the foreseeable future, so I'll grab the chance while I may. Not that I can afford to buy much right now. Transatlantic shipping costs an arm and a leg!

Would this be a good time for the Grand Tour to visit Hetzenberg?

An excellent time, Captain!
