11/11

They went with songs to the battle, 
They were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, 
Steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end 
Against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

Echoing afresh a thought from a few years ago - for all we are a hobby that seeks to recreate war, I remain profoundly glad and impressed that in general we do so to understand it, not pointlessly glorify it.
St John the Evangelist Church in Slimbridge, 2018

The Miller's Tale - Episode 4

Episode 4: In which Mike reviews Too Fat Lardies' "I Ain't Been Shot Mum"...

No, I know I'm not the first. See, the plan is, to review things not when they're brand new, but when I've had time to beat them into submission and figure out what I really like and don't...

The Miller's Tale - Episode 3

Episode 3: In which Mike gets caught out by summer holidays and Real Life.

Please note: the majority of this podcast was recorded in early August, hence some of the remarks and news items are a little out of date - they are, I hope, still as valid as when they were made.

Accountability post 29th Jan

Late finish - just got back in from club having had my Night Watch roundly trounced by Grahame's Wildings.... typical Grahame force, lots of annoying missile troops in woods :D

Today? Today I did my taxes! Go me! Also went out, test drove and placed the deposit on (so, pretty much, bought) Anne a new (to her) car (the old one's a write-off) with which she is absolutely delighted, and I did manage to sort out printing quotes for various size print runs of a certain 72 to 96 page colour paperback book that you're all interested in.

The good news? You'll be able to buy a printed copy. In colour.

Tomorrow I'm in London all day for an interview, so don't expect much.

A reader writes...

Ok - for those of you applauding my incompetence handling a British column in Spain over the holiday break, Jeff writes that the guys had another go this weekend... (there were, it has to be said, Certain Discussions at the time about whether the British had any chance at all. Me, I blame the CO :D)
[We] got together on the 20th to have another run at the scenario in which you played during your visit to the Twin Cities.  It turned out very different this time.

Pictures are here,
Looks like fun, and another excellent demonstration of the Napoleonic Command rules.
