A lot of ink (and pixels) have been spilled on this one already. Suffice it to say, that this one was much, much worse than last time. The fact I haven't blogged about it until now, after nearly a week, is probably some indication of that. Not that I have been in any real dire straits (having to queue for water at the limited distribution points for the first couple of days was luckily as dramatic as it got for us) but because I really didn't 'feel' like it. Well Jason broke the ice, and has spurred me back into thinking about lighter things, so I've had to hurry up and make some progress! The TTG never happened, but we should beable to get a game in tommorrow - while we both 'watch' pur respective sets of kids. Luckily for me, all my models made it through in one piece.
First of all though, one picture on the quake. We all keep hearing about the damage to the Cathedral. But here is the 'other' Cathedral in Christchurch. My wife and I were gutted to see this. We were married there and loved the building. I know that the one in the Square was a symbol of the city, but this 'other' one was the far finer building, to our mind.
Next up are the Scots. Another base of CP, and three lots of S, two with muskets and one as a 'fantasy unit' - converted musketeers to be 'sword and buckler men' in the Caledonians incarnation of the list (for Impetus Fantasy).
