FoW stuff in!

Forgot to take pics of the Canadian Dice set but the models and book are the important thing. Unfortunately the Royal Arillery Platoon was out of stock so on my next paycheck I'll just have to order them by blister packs.

No Call to Arms :(

Hey guys, some good news, other then the title... lol. I found a job, HOORAY! But unfortunately, I'm working the Saturday of the tournament, I don't feel like it would set a good impression if I asked for a day off already so unfortunately I'm going to have to miss oot this time, I'm really disappointed because CTA is my favorite tournament which sucks, but I knew at some point I would to miss one at some point...

At least I found job... which screws me lol

In other non-wargaming news, I applied for the Territorial Reserves (nice and early) in November for some extra cash and a different experience, so I'll be playing real soldiers for a 8 weeks.

Also, ordered my Centaurs 2 days ago so hopefully they get in on Saturday of next week!

Hobby Update

Just a quick update lads.

1. Almost finished painting my unit of hobgoblins, well they are all painted just needing to be based, will post some pics once I base them :D.

2. Ordered my Bull Centaurs from Mantic, got 10 of them for 55 bucks which includes shipping so not bad at all. However, I though they came on the correct bases, turns out they don't :L (you were right Sam) so I cut some 3mm MDF out for 6 bases 

Also on a side note; getting some more practice games in with my CD's which is always good, the count is 4 games post Horned Gobbo. I want to get it up to 12 or even more before Call to Arms which is reachable. Tuning the CD list, I'm happy with the current one. I won't post it now because, lie I said before, it's still in the tuning stages but I should hopefully have the concrete one soon.
