Hot Lead......

Avoiding the seeming trend of assigning sexual gravity to a name that is, after all, a bunch of chaps playing toy soldiers I have fixed the title of this little ditty as "Hot Lead". It's not that I don't approve of juvenile inuendo, in fact like most of you, I thrive on it. Just wanted to appear the mature adult that I most definately am not.

Anyway, I've been looking forward to this gig for a long time. After much humming and harring/changing of mind/torment over what army to take (see past two entries) I've decided on Age of El Cid Christian Spanish. They're not the steam-rolling Normans that have often graced the clubs (SESWC) tables, but a much more friendlier army that may or may not win a game or two without damaging the smile that sits fittingly upon my opponents face. Of course, those of you that have seen me play in various campaign days will know that this all may just be an excuse for hitting the bottom of the table come Sunday evening :o))))) Come what may, I'm sure I'll have a great time.

One last thing, I've been following with a keen eye Mr Imrie's Blog and the rrogress he is making with his Thematic Byzantines. Well worth a check out. Also, for those that haven't seen my good friend and fellow painting crazy Brian's Sassanids, then check out the following pages from his website or we'll send the boys around. We will too you know :o)


Pics of El Cid army post event. And that's a promise as I'm re-basing as I speak :o)
