It's been quite spell since our last FK&P game so it was good to get back into things C17 last night....even down to Handel and Vivaldi music playing in the background  Smiley

I think you will agree that all the work that Paul's done for the Cheriton refight has really paid off when you see the pictures.

I will leave it up to Paul to report on the game itself  Lips Sealed  Wink

Further good progress on painting the polystyrene sheets Smiley

I should probably paint the second side of each sheet and do a second coat on the edges Hurry up! Hurry up!
Hopefully the weather will cooperate  Waiting

Weather finally looking promising for painting today Smiley
Unfortunately I will be in the office at work  At wits' end

Forecast for Tuesday is looking promising  Waiting

Made some more victory coins, this will allow me to have the armies fight longer if the first game finishes too quickly

The second of my test/practice games for Easter went well http://www.pendrakenforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,18115.msg275869.html#msg275869

I've now resorted all the troops and double checked everything Nerd

A few things left to do:
  • print information sheets for the public and game banner
  • print updated version of the QRS
  • paint last 2 polystyrene sheets
  • varnish 4 extra victory 'coins'
  • paint second side of all the polystyrene sheets

The last three are weather dependent but not critical Waiting

So with 11 days to go I'm left pondering what I've missed Undecided

Seams like youve been pretty thorough.
Maybe you've missed beer and the great outdoors?

I have to admit it can be a right hoo-ha putting on a display/participation game, and I sometimes wonder if those who’ve never done it realise this. Mind you, I still think, particularly with display games, that there should be a club member free at all times to chat to the public while the game is being played.

The players are a disparate group from, I think, 4 different towns/cities rather than a club so finding a volunteer to be free at all times would be a challenge

I agree that we need to be accessible to the public and make a point of talking to anyone that shows an interest, this is something I’ll be emphasising in the player briefing

We also have good signage and a one page background for any one who wants to read it

The weather didn't cooperate on Saturday Sad

But Sunday dawned fine and clear and unfortunately about 3 degrees C Shocked

It finally warmed up enough to begin painting the second side and second coat of the edges of the remaining sheets by about 10am Waiting Smiley

Almost all done Smiley

I ran out of paint with about half the last side of the last sheet to do At wits' end

I realised I was running short so made sure I did the edges and the side near the edges so that will have to do

Unfortunately l wont be able to join Paul this Easter...my daughter took a bad tumble out a window and has been in hospital with a broken rib and cracked vertibrae....she was very lucky but will make a full recovery hopefully. In a spinebrace for 2 monfhs which means Lisa and l will have our hands full for a while..... will have to work with Paul on the Scots and get my W3K experience later in the year.

The really good news is l have been with her in the ward today and she's walking round quite normally. 2019 has been pretty challenging so far and theres still 7 months to go....
