Probably the most thing we do is buy books and rules.( Apart from increasing our lead collection that is)
It's that trap that I know sends me to consider buying more figures. You get the book, you read the book and before you know your scouring the web for the figures. Have I changed.
Have I hell !!!!
I recently bought this book.
"Perceptions on both sides of the border will be reshaped by Robert Ryal Miller's account of American Soldiers who deserted to fight in the Mexican army.
Miller uncovers the reasons for these desertions, presenting the soldier's stories as they are revealed in records of the time. Many of these deserters were immigrant Irishmen."
" Fifty were executed ; otherswere whipped and branded. The leader of the group , John Riley , was branded with a D on both cheeks. The Mexcian government , on the other hand, viewed the men of the Saint Patrick's Battalion as heroes, awarding them honours and errecting a monument to them."
Fortunately this time I won't be adding to my lead collection as I already have enough. Now there was also a film made" One Man's Hero" starring Tom Berenger as John Riley. It's never been released here as far as you know and in the end I bought it as a double bill with " Never talk to strangers".
I know tagged with another movie. Never a good sign but I think I will watch it again now.
As for rules well me and Gordon recently attended Highlander games where we had a look while a local Hordes competition took place. Anyway bought the rules.
Payday today. Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

However at present I am surrounded by French who will be finished before anything else. Even those Germans for Force on Force.
