Well, I'm excusing my lack of photo-updates and two missing battle reports with the following joyous bit of info:
My multi-adaptor which powers my laptops has died, spectacularly. So now I can't use either of them! Arrrgh!
On top of that, I have discovered the hard way that my shed (garage) leaks. I lost three books to water damage on Friday. One is easily replaced, one can be either picked up 2nd hand as a book or printed off as a PDF...
...and one is now only availiable second hand for upwards of £100!
For the interested, they are Codex: Space Marines (5th Edition), Mordheim: Empire in Flames, and Tactica Imperialis: A History of the Later Imperial Crusades.
So, in all, woe and misery. Expect reguar updates to begin again once I can reliably power my laptops. Bloody hell! What a saga!
