Been quiet recently. The reason for this is that I'm following a self-imposed curfew from VDU use after 10 at night in the interests of combating insomnia. So no PC, iPhone games, DVDs or vidya after 10 which is cutting the amount of time I spend online.
Despite this, the Rogue Trader game at Oldhammer weekend is go go go, scheduled for Sunday 1st September at Foundry in Nottingham. You can find the thread and rules and such like at the B.L.O.O.D. forum (no idea what that acronym stands for) here.
Anyway pics of some toys that will no doubt show their faces at Foundry.
Sunday was the West Midlands Military Show at Wolverhampton which is the same show that used to be based at that run-down secondary school in Walsall just off J10. Despite the name it's 90% wargaming with the balance being made up from displays by local kit modellers, a re-enactor or two and a couple of Second World War US Army vehicles.
These days, with the decline of the small "club open day" show this is one of only two shows I attend, the other being the show that used to be called Sandwell Skirmish but then moved out of Sandwell and into Brum which is held in December.
I picked up a few bits and pieces, mainly for the Oldhammer 40,000 game. I saw nothing of RPG interest, the usual Bring and Buy stall was pretty desolate and devoid of much of interest. I think this is probably the continuation of the decline of the B&B concept (once upon a time being the only real reason to attend smaller shows) it's market share having been decimated by eBay and a lot of tales of theft from stalls. That's usually where I pick up RPG bargains but nothing of interest this time.
On the subject of RPGs I finally got around at looking at the PDF download of 1977 vintage Tunnels & Trolls (4th edition) that I downloaded back in November. Printed out and bound this now means that I have four copies of T&T across three different editions and I have never played any of them...
