Merry Christmas! With a fine picture of a llama clad in a traditional Christmas hat - demonstrating my photoshopping skills - matched only by the skillset of a developing-country-postcard-maker.
My budget didn't allow me to buy that many miniatures to put under the tree which is for the best considering the very little space left for assembled figures. The mûmak which I bought almost two years ago have been left unassembled since I can fit only one of the b@stards in the monster box. I will need to repack some things. That is my Christmas gift to myself: Move to a bigger place!
And thanks to Jamie for his kind words over at Rough War (of the Ring).
Which reminds me of this: War of the Ring is taking up so much space to play. And I sometimes miss the Strategy Battle Game - especially the feeling of "being" in Middle-Earth. I will not abandon WotR but I will try get a few games of SBG in this year.
Those of you who have followed me this year might be aware of my futile hopes of getting in 100 games. I got 7 games in. Good games. Quality before quantity. Clearly I will not make this 100-games pledge, so I guess my new years eve-promise will be something with regards to play SBG. Blah-blah-blah, time to eat and hope that the antibiotics have cured my wisdom tooth and jaw. Merry Christmas one and all! And remember, it is not called "happy holidays" it is called Christmas! So, I guess I will wish all you journalists, PC-people and politicians a big Merry Fuck You for calling it happy holidays!
