Snaa ,snaa and on top of that a bit of Snaa. Dug a trench this morning from by back door to the gate and another to the garage. Then dug away a 3 -4foot drift to gety the car out ... maybe. Later today I'll hike to the Post office to get some parcels out at least. the Courier can't get in so only Post Office parcels can get out. Nevertheless we continue. All being well we'll be at the York show in about a fornight . Hopefully with a bundle of new stuff from the USA. Mostly Bluemoon 15mm ACW. There are around 20 new packs to add to this already large range. About 4 hours later= well made it to the posr Office- took 20 plus packages. The walk- about 800 or so yards took well over an hour for the round trip.. The backroads are virtually impassable unl;ess you have a landrover - even some of the more wimpy SUV were having trouble. and the snaa continues to fall - about an inch while I was out....

For chaps of a certain age the title phrase is redolent of cinematic memeories. Sometime between the main feature and the adenoidal brunette in the miniskirt with the ice cream tray (Dairy Maid anyone- Drink on a stick?) would come the for your Future Enteraiment slot- previews of future movies so here we have previews of future models First Drabant - more of those wonderful 25mm Dark ages are on the way. This time the lads have their choppers out!

A few posts back I put up some pics on my Landsknects and Gensdarmes as they hasdn't rolled a dice in anger for some time- certainly not in 2012. There are others of my collection in that unhappy state. My turks for a start- needing an addition to thier strength- especially artillery but a decent games worth opposite the Ladsknects.
