The day that is in it, so it is...

Back from work, exhausted, but happy. Too tired to blog properly, but here's some content stolen from elsewhere.

Feel free to pass this list on and to steal the idea for yourself.

Stolen from Donogh's "Land War in Asia"

...who in turn stole it from "Victoria's Boys in Red".

"The basic idea is that instead of giving something in return to someone who helps you out, you give something in return to someone else in need. We've all received bits from our fellow gamers where we don't want to go to the expense of making a full order just for minor piece of a pack. And I'm sure that most gamers have bits lying around in boxes that they'll probably never use."

1/35 Dragon British Commonwealth Troops (NW Europe 1944)
1/35 Tamiya British Eight Army Infantry (Desert Rat)
1/35 Italeri US Marines M4 Sherman
1/35 British Universal Carrier Mk. II (European Campaign) x 2
1/32 Italeri PAK 40 AT Gun with servants

I'm adding a tabbed page to the blog so that people can see what I'm giving away* - all I'm going to ask is that people pay the postage (these are all pretty light, so even internationally it won't add up to too much). I'll weigh and price them over the next while for some likely destinations.

Obviously whether you want to do likewise is completely up to you and I won't put any preconditions on my sending these to you, but I think it would be exceedingly cool if this snowballs across the blogosphere!
If any of the items above catches your eye, leave a comment with your e-mail (I won't publish it) and I'll contact you directly."

*I didn't do this as I am a technological buffoon.

Back to hearth & home.

Back to hearth & home.

It's been a long road, but I've finally got my posting and while I can't discuss specifics here I am very happy. I am going back to Dublin.

Mrs. Kinch had a house viewing organised within six hours of my getting a station, though I really can't begrudge her; she's had the patience of the better class of Saint over the last year.

As for gaming, I haven't done a tap.

Edit: I really wish they'd turn on the heating here...
