If that wasn't enough, I've had to write a script for a conference, develop and prepare a 25 minute presentation to be held at the Beach Ballroom and delivered to 500 managers and key stakeholders, do presentations to senior executives and on my own behalf, apply for two job opportunities.
On a Winter of '79 front things have come to a temporary standstill as I put some key figures out to be painted and am just waiting for them to return before continuing the airborne assault into the Welsh valleys.

I was taken with the terrain immediately I first saw the village for sale on eBay. But I admit, I was a little apprehensive when I committed to buy. Been bitten before. However, the village arrived in only 48 hours, undamaged and impressively packaged. As soon as I got it out of the box and on the table, I just had to play a quick game to blood it.
I am even more delighted that it's miles than in the photos. Chris manages a good tonal quality that makes it feel right. I've consequently put a bid in on something else and have a couple of other items lined up once we get closer to pay day. Another game using these new village terrain tiles is planned for today and I have two more games in mind this week now that work is under control and Im fully prepped for taking the stage next week.
Chris's village set has also inspired me to pick up a couple of packs of Under Fire Miniatures' new Chechen fighters. And I finally have an excuse to get a few Warmodelling/AB Figures Normandy Brits and Jerries. Plus, don't think you won't see this used as a Winter of '79 Welsh or Dales village either in coming weeks either.
Photos and batreps of all the games to follow over the next few nights.
