My Wild West mat turned up the other day and I am pleased with it, nothing startling but nicer than the one I am using. I took a couple of photos but the light was not good so I have simply plonked the advert from Deep Cut Studios. I could have gone for a smaller mat but I have a large town and I like to use the full area rather than the recommended couple of feet, plus it leaves my options open for a ranch or mine etc.
I have also ordered up more Romans, yes I know, madness. Now that the Twelfth are getting out for some battles I find I am using the armoured archers as skirmishers, which of course if you have Wargamers OCD is not an option, hence I have got some A&A mid Imperial unarmoured archers coming. To be honest at the moment I am limited to some slingers and the horse archers so they are needed. I argued with myself for a long time over buying that other auxiliary unit as well, but pulled back from the brink, for now.
Also for some reason I have got painters block, I have the new cavalry unit all cleaned and primed ready to go but have not went near them since, I am seeking medical advice. I hope to be back to normal after the Easter break.
I have been busy finishing off several map projects as well recently, some of these have been in the pipeline for a while waiting for the authors to give the green light, I have a new one on the South Africans during WWII, the second volume, next in line.
