Good News, the Boleyn Regiment has turned up, I had to drive down to Colchester Zoo to get them, it appears they had been detained for Elephant Bothering!!! :- :- :- :- :-

And I find it very hard to believe that Mr Ronan actually believed my pile of twaddle, unless he was being ironic in a very post modern way. In which case his condolences reeked of cynical sarcasm. :)) :)) :)) :)) :)) :)) :)) :))

Have you taken up recasting?


Please don't give him any ideas - I'm still hoping to get the stuff back on their bases (as poorly based as they evidently are).

The basing is fine. It just needs highlighting with a nice puce pink.

And Tim has given me a good alibi so I'm sorted :)

No, on reflection I did get a little suspicious at the coincidence of a one-off leaving of stuff in the car and theft (and the subsequent reminder of Peeler taking possession of said items), but decided not to edit the post as, frankly, your description wasn't far off the level of "support" I got when a real builder nicked our real passports. b-)

But I'd just like to make it crystal clear that I would NEVER, EVER be cynically sarcastic (or indeed sarcastically cynical) about the theft of a man's toys. [-X [-(

[Good one. You bastard. :d ]

On top of the £700 repair bill, another £280 on car tax today.

A Grand gone.

That could have been a lot of figures & beer <mad> .

Just think- you could have bought a year's supply of these for £1k:

That's at two a day!
OK- six months supply :))

And yet, the Scottish adventure doth continue somewhat. I was back up to nearby/not far far away Aberchordar Aber Hoo oh somewhere anyway, at the Broken Copper repair home last Monday & am here for two weeks, so me & Paul & hopefully Mark can do some gaming over this weekend, spot of DBN followed by SS&S game.
And a jolly nice take away too I hope. :)

That should settle the independence vote then.
Dear Scotland, we're sorry. We only lost track of him for 5 minutes.

Indeed. The pro-Indy vote has being down since I've been here. And rightly so :d

Finally arrived at 2am now have the European painkiller mountain to get me through a game with Peeler!

After a great deal of thought I've decided that it would be best not to do a WD3 Scotland game next year.

This is for several reasons:
I don't want any of the 'regional' games to detract from Ayton or any other regional games and the possible dates for a Scotland game would be too close to others or key events of most peoples calender.

It's a long way to come and I appreciate the huge effort made by those who came up this year but wouldn't want people to feel obliged to come again or think that I would have a hissy fit if they didn't!

and whilst EB had help getting home this time I would worry that next time I might get a phone call at 1am asking how to get from Koltur to London!

...all that said....I am here...the games room is here and I would be happy to welcome any Wd3ers to come up and have a game or three.....I had toyed with the idea of a 'Hogmanay' event but realised that large amounts of Whisky don't mix well with lots of pointing bayonetted toy soldiers!

I hope you're not ruling out all future games in Garth House Paul. I'm perfectly happy with the distance* and greatly enjoyed the weekend. The only improvement I could suggest is that we dispense with the need for an umpire and you get to beat up EB as well as the rest of us :-)

* in no way diminished by the curse of Peeler, which has now descended on my van exhaust and for which the time honoured ritual of the sucking of the teeth will be performed by various rude mechanicals on Friday.

Certainly not! I had a very enjoyable time sitting back and watching it all happen...plus I got to elephant the Boleyns which was fun!

If 1, 2 or 20 people want to come up for a game next year then I am more than happy to organise and host, but what I don't want is people feeling obliged because it's under the 'WD3' banner and am also very aware that many members have closer games which may not happen if I steal some members to come up here!

'The Curse of Peeler' - has a certain ring to it :d

I know what you're saying Paul, we don't want to end up with too many games on thus splitting our gamers 'availability', but I think we'll need another Scotland, maybe alternate with Framlingham?

(Though I'm bringing a trailer load of quick set tarmac to level the side roads with me next time). :)

Just make me and EB walk the last bit. It'll be cheaper...

Now that sounds suspiciously like a plan. I can set a decent portion of my annual leave aside for WD3 adventures three a year would be pushing it if I want to turn one into a week long stay as I did at Ayton. Already booked the cottage for next year.

I recall that Paul was doing a splendid job of beating me up without anyone's help.

I'd already sort of made up my mind that in view of the distances the Scotland expedition would most likely be bi annually - assuming Paul was kind enough to invite me back of course. Funnily enough I managed to travel to Aberfeldy for less than the cost of getting to Scarborough, which is about half the distance, but next year a round trip of twenty to twenty two hours may be a trip too far. Which isn't to rule it out because I have a habit of changing my mind and I'd certainly love to repeat the weekend.
