KR Hurrah

Today is the first time in ages that I haven't painted anything...

Cue semi blurry photo.....

I was awoken by a very excited 3 year old who wanted me to open the parcel that had arrived for me. The parcel turned out to be the KR backpack.

I have to say that I am very impressed. My Napoleonics are all safely tucked away in their foam cases, and if my calculations are correct, two KR card cases should be enough to carry my planned two infantry and one brigade.

The back packs is also very nice. It has lots of space, a couple of side pockets, and a pocket for carrying books. A quick test reveals that this pocket can carry the hard backed 8th ed rule book, along with the Black Powder rulebook and two possibly three army books. And there is enough space left over to easily carry a light waterproof jacket or a sweater.

The case feels comfortable when you have it on your back and it certainly seems sturdy.

So all in all I am very pleased.

Highly recommended.

I mentioned the other day that I was getting technofear about using various progrmas to create the things I needed for General Quarters. Last night for whatever reason this technofear disappeared and I rattled through the various tasks.

Thus instead of painting I have spent the day laminating various pieces of card and paper, and sealing the edges with cellotape, as can be seen in the picture above.

I have suggested that the missus play a trial game with me, on the basis that if she, who has little interest in wargaming, can play the game easily and enjoy it, then anyone can. We shall have to see if she takes me up on the offer.
