If I didn't feel like death warmed up right now today would be an absolute pearler. Even with my evil man flu there's still plenty to be chuffed about here and Millsy Towers.
Firstly, Issue One of Wargame Bloggers Quarterly has just reached the 1,000 downloads milestone in less than a week since publication. I don't believe any of us involved would have imagined it would have done so well when we put it out there. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and there has been great interest from the community in submitting content and getting on board in general. To everyone who has commented, given a shout out or otherwise got involved thank you very much! If you've not yet downloaded a copy get into it folks.
Tom from the appropriately named Tom's Toy Soldiers not only had one, he posted him off in short order and he arrived yesterday, completely gratis.
It's this kind of thing that makes you realise what a wonderful group of people the gaming blogosphere is. Thanks Tom! Your beer will be ready and waiting when you arrive Down Under for the footy mate.
Hobby-wise, I'm finally back at the modelling desk after all the computer work on WBQ and it's been quite refreshing to do something other than type. I'm currently assembling a couple of armoured vehicles for my Space Marines, plus a bunch of extra Terminators, all of which is apparently absolutely necessary to survive life in the grim-dark after Russ well and truly towelled me up on the weekend with his Birthday Orks.
Lastly, another upside of WBQ is a bunch of new friends have joined the Canister and Grape crew. Welcome aboard Sean, Will Mays, Martin Connell, MarkG and Robert Audin (who also published in WBQ Issue One).
