No, not an Old West posting.......Mr Anon asked a very valid question regarding W79 and so.....the following statement has been cleared by the Army Council to be so news free that it may be published:
"To be honest, both mark and I hit the wall in the last quarter of 2011; I've not commented about my job and frankly dont want to but you can see from his postings that Mark's job has run him ragged.
We both found it easier to natter about W79, 15mm WW2, colonial skirmish even 15mm fantasy, than to actually get gaming. I bought my argies in late Jan and simply put them in the box marked "paint:sometime".
As to what is happening.......well, we suprised each other really, we are both in it for the fun and banter but I think our strategies and tactics surprised each other - my quite cold blooded approach hid a nigh psychotic Celtic fury while Mark's easy going nature slipped to reveal the bastard RSM he'd have been if he'd stayed in.
And we want to get W79 right, harnessing our gaming alter egos to the right games - that tell the story of W79 and not just a thinly veiled brits vs warpact game. As an example, think of Alan Tate's story arc - that's become a bit more to us than a simple shootout. By the end were were actually talking it through like a movie scene - call or email us, Guy! We burnt ourselves out a bit, work didn't help and thus - nothing got done.
That's what's happened and the current diversions are part of the process, clearing our minds and simply having a laugh with Zulus and Runequest or whatever.
