The Land of the Midnight Sun

Sue (my wife) and I have been on our travels again. She found a great last-minute deal on a cruise to Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and the Orkney Islands on P&O's Arcadia ... and booked it. As a result we have been away from home for twelve nights, and I have come back with lots to write blog entries about!

These travel-related blog entires will be appearing over the next week or so, along with the normal sort of blog entries that I write. The latter will include a brief run-down on the latest issue of MINIATURE WARGAMES WITH BATTLEGAMES and a description of the latest issue of WARSHIP annual.

My most important pre-occupation for the next fortnight will be preparing for COW2014 (this year's Conference of Wargamers). It starts on 11th July and ends on 13th July, and at present we expect to cater for over well forty attendees. I have the programme ready to take to the printer tomorrow, and it will be sent out to attendees by the end of the week.

  4. Tradgardmastare,

    Hopefully the blog entry about my recent cruise will be appearing either later today or tomorrow. It all depends upon domestic pressures (i.e. washing and putting away the clothes that we wore, re-stocking the larder) and getting the COW Programme printed and ready to be sent out to COW attendees.

    I don't have a lot to get ready for COW ... but I do need to try to paint some 54mm figures for the LITTLE COLD WARS session.

    All the best,

    Bob
