Twofold, this weekend.
This year's todo list is already wobbling a bit :D One of the items discussed at the club AGM last week was the number of anniversaries coming up this year and next, and we're planning on doing a set of D-Day all-day games in June as a result. I did a bit of reading on some of the IABSM scenario books I've got, and I now have designs on running 'Bloody Omaha' from the 'Where The Hell Have You Been, Boys?' book. Which resulted in me snagging a Battlefront 29th Infantry Assault Company box set from eBay (for, I should note, about half RRP, which I was well pleased about).
As an aside: Uncle Mike's Rules Of eBay Bidding:
- Bid once.
- Bid as late as you can.
- Bit the most you're prepared to pay. (DON'T play 'how much do I need to bid to beat the current leader' games - it's a recipe for losing auctions you could have won)
- Walk away until the auction's finished.
End result: you'll only ever get beaten by someone who's prepared to pay more than you. If you can't be around late for an auction, I recommend Auctionsniper.com (and if you say eBay user fleetfootmike sent you, I get three free snipes (as do you)!).Of course, now I need a couple of boat section blisters as well, and half a dozen LCVP's. Just missed out on the latter tonight [addendum: just grabbed one box for under £30], but I'm sure there'll be more on eBay at decent prices.
So - today's plan was to make a start on two beach boards, not just for Bloody Omaha, as I also need them for both Dux Brit and Chain of Command. Sadly, THAT plan got clobbered by a rather nasty migraine which caused me to spend all afternoon in bed.
