Bad luck
« on: May 12, 2017, 10:04:19 PM »
Tonight I was due to run a game of Hammerin Iron for Jase Hurst from the Stoke club. Jase has done a bit of painting for Martin in the past and is certainly an expert wielder of the brush.

My hex mat is usually stored in the garage along with other bits of wargaming material. We are currently undergoing some building work at home which has spilled over into one of the garages.

I spent 2 hours searching for my mat to no avail. My only conclusion is that the builder has mistakenly disposed of my mat on the skip that was removed early last week.

So no game. I've consoled myself by painting some SCW Anarchists whilst I ponder what to do. I have a large blue felt cloth which I may draw my own hexes on. Or i am left with the option of buying another mat.

The flag is flying at half mast over the Clark residence tonight.

I am sure your 'mates' were not too keen on the skip either.

Your Anarchists will help to console you.

Are the builders also great players of Hammerin Iron.

I am sure Martin will happily sell you another one.

Commiseration Sean, but if the builders got hold of and left it it paint and plaster soaked it would still not be of much use.

I thought I'd updated the group. The mat turned up in the rafters of the garage so all is well.

This is terribel news Sean. Maybe you should buy 4 more mats just in case?  I can do a "four for the price of five" deal??

You make a tempting offer Martin, but that would prevent the recruitment of lots of little lead men to fight in Berlin and the Range Wars that are just over the horizon...and the Montagnards....and the Ikko Ikki....and...North Staffordshire Battalion of the International Brigade....and and and..😀

Hoping to get that game of HI played on the next couple of weeks.

Well if you don't but it now it will be reduced back to normal price. Think about that when preaching on Sunday!
