Still waiting to hear about the job I applied for last week, but immediate pressure is off. My team has been reduced from 19 to just 10 between January and May, then reduced again down to eight in the last few days. Let's just say I drew one of the lucky straws.
On Thursday I was asked to join a meeting with our new Head of Service. We were asked to come up with a strategy for the new enterprise programme office reviewing current projects against the shifting organisational requirments. Friday, I get into the office at 7.25am, picked up a marker pen and by 7.30am had created FutureSmart: A Total Vision Approach on the whiteboard. Job Done! The old Mark is back!
Next week, a few days leave, so we head well and truly back into the cauldron of 15mm Sci Fi on Dropship Horizon. I'm looking forward to painting up some new stuff from Pole Bitwy and will be reviewing them daily here on DH.
Look out also for my new blog called The Winter of 79, which supports our latest gaming project set in an alternative timeline of the late seventies and early eighties.
I can't waitReplyDelete
This will be a treat!ReplyDelete
Sounds like I will have to break out my old TRB records and cue up "I'm Allright, Jack". Looking forward to it.ReplyDelete
Any more hints on what we can expect there? What forces will be involved? What rules are you goint to use? What scale of miniatures? What scale of battles?ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see the new blog!
Chest of Colors: All About Miniature Painting
Well, I'm starting out with Police & Thieves running around in East Whittington while Mark probably plots the downfall of the Civil Power. I have some blaggers, some detectives a few terrorist, SAS figs (all gogged up) and a few guys who look a bit Professional as it were, while Mark has some BAOR figs. My games are going to be quite small and probably focus around a corner pub, a used car business on an old bomb site and a railway viaduct with a few shops in it. I'm using Geezers-Shuttit.....ReplyDelete
What Matt (M.Chef) is saying, is that he is leading the build up with CI5 and Sweeney attempting to foil revolutionary bankrolling raids, the SAS busting armed Trot cells etc.ReplyDelete
My focus is on riot, rebellion and revolution! Civil disturbance leading to open civil war. Riots and running gun battles on the streets with Ambush Alley.
Union militias, Mad Trots, Very Private Armies and a fractured British Army at platoon/reinforced platoon level using classic Scudbusters, Flying Lead,Force on Force. Plus some home grown beauties and others as suit the scenario - all played out to the sounds of The Jam, Clash, and TRB!
There is a great site for another alternative '80s scenario - another English civil war, but in micro. I especially like the news bulletins leading up to the battles, and the use of OS and google earth maps to set up the tables.ReplyDelete
