................

We were also setting up some of the tables yesterday, that was not quite finished so I will take more pictures of it today.


As we were doing that I noticed this hugeass spider chilling out just outside the window which was open. Fuuuuuu...... my reaction to spiders with bodies larger than 5mm across is that if Jeff Daniels in Arachnophobia. I just want to bring out a homemade flamethrower and torch the SoB before it can nest.
Makes me think of this great cover of The Cure song "Lullaby" by Editors, a song that is wonderfully atmospheric and silly at the same time.

  1. The Siberian platoon will be absolutely zero fun to play against. Hopefully lots of negative comp points for that one!

  2. Sounds great - looking forward to the AARs!

  3. Well I'm dead tired so I don't remember how it went for everyone else. I met the Swedish Partisans and the APE platoon today. I barely won against those damned Partisans! And lost against the APE's, the loss against the APE platoon was due to the scenario being time limited rather than turn limited. Which sucked. But 2 games left so I'll see how it goes tomorrow.

    I have to mention one freak outcome today, the Partisans actually managed to score a full victory against the Soviet mech platoon today! My mind was blown away when I heard about it.

    I will start posting pictures tomorrow, and some battle report summaries after the weekend :-)
