|Mounted Officers, cant wait to see mine painted|
I also mentioned that I will be giving Impetus a whirl for my first fory into the BGP (before gun powder) gaming and this is where the generosity part comes in, the Impetus publishers were closed for the summer hol's and I hadn't got around to ordering the rules and I made mention of this fact. Well knock me over with a Rolf Harris wobble board if a chap didn't offer me his set for the very reasonable price of bugger all (ie gratis), more staggering is when the post arrived it also had four of the supplements included! Not being home at the moment (work away from home) I have yet to clap eyes on this very generous offer, but it does go to show that there are some very decent chaps around and a very heartfelt thank you to Dave for his generosity.
My researches as far as the two Opreys and the WRG book are concerned have paid off and I believe I was able to correctly caption the above photo's without resorting to going back to the Aventine site to check, OK the officers photo was as given but I'm claiming some credit for the other two ;-)
That's it for now as far as the Roman thingy goes, navel gazing as to who or what we are as War Gamers is not far from my thoughts and my philosophical dribblings on the subject have nearly reached full fermentation, another installment to follow shortly.
