This year is designated my 'get to know WW2' year. The period has always been a bit of a Dark Age for me. I can tell the difference between a Tiger and a Panther tank, and I'm aware of who won, but as to tactics, the number of rivets on a Pz38t or how far a Spitfire could fly before needing to refuel I am clueless.

As such I am gorging on books, film and documentaries.

One such is the German produced 3 part drama 'Generation War.' I was very impressed with it, taking as it did the human angle of 5 friends and how the war affected them. Uniforms seemed correct. I think I saw some Tiger tanks. And the German was all dramatically correct.

I would recommend this if you haven't seen it. It's available on Netflix.

Between 8 and 12 would suffice. I think I have 16 per side which is 2 packs but have never come anywhere near using them all. They get cleared off the table pretty quickly once the morale tests have been taken. Of course one pile of casualties can be used for both sides.

Sounds promising. I've had no luck finding anything similar to Stewarts.

I tend to use the prone figures more but make sure that I varnish them first with matt polyurethane varnish followed by a spray matt for a truly dull coat. They are nearly bomb proof. But I do try and ask players to be as careful as possible.

The calva was shared around the table on New Years Eve at the stroke of midnight. Couldn't think of a better way to see in the new year!

What is the Viking connection with Llandudno? I spent many a childhood holiday there and have never heard about this.

Hope today went well. I was released from hospital yesterday afternoon and had a couple of hours down at the Stoke club but paying for ti today as I spent most of it in bed!

Looking forward to a report.

Thank you chaps. Really cheered me up. I'm nearly 24 hours in of the IV. Probably finish IV's tomorrow and then home. Feel quite a bit better!

At least there's free WiFi to keep me going.

Lisa is bringing a couple of books in from home for me so a chance to catch up on some reading. Beevors Arnhem and Dominion by CJ Sansom which is an alternative history 'we lost the war' tale where we surrender in 1940. It's set in 1952 so that will be interesting!

Medical update...

I think I've slept for roughly three and half minutes all night. Several admissions overnight with clanking trolleys, beeps 2nd alarms mean a hospital ward ironically is not the most restful place overnight!

Should see the Dr. at some point this morning.

I'm currently sat in A&E awaiting transfer to a ward. I appear to have contracted some killer bacterial infection that has floored me. I'm in need of 24-48 hours of I.V. antibiotics. My temperature peaked at 40.1  :-[

I think it might mean my trip south has been kiboshed.
