This year I had no idea what I wanted so ended up with a chunk of money. Part will sit waiting for future spends but I have been thinking of getting GMT's Command and Colours, either the Ancients or the Napoleonic's but had not connected it to Christmas. Indeed the £50 label had put me off, strange given the amount of times I have spent up to double that for a ASL product.
Suddenly I connected free cash = free game and then it was just a case of choosing which to go after. Well given my Son gets a real kick out of Napoleonic's I had an obvious choice and ordered it Sunday and it arrived today.
Quality and production are high and I was surprised how quick I got the stickers in place for the first scenario having read so many moans about the time it takes. I will continue to finish the blocks over a DVD and will have the lot done before bed tonight I think.
I had given my Nephew Battle Cry years ago, written by the same author and a more basic version. I played my Son at that Tuesday night having borrowed it back and he seems to have the idea fairly in place and so either Friday night or Saturday we will take this baby for a run.
Only issue is that after discussing it with my Son we have decided that I will paint up 6mm bases (6 infantry to a base etc) so as to have an even better experience. Guess the new project idea did not last long but in my defence we will take it slow and besides it's not mine it's the boys....honest.
