Well, done enough to have a game Monday evening. Here's the photo's of Saturday's labours.
Firstly I relaid the carpet, having discovered another large piece of burgundy lurking in the garage. Then Mrs T helped carry in the table(s) from the garage. You can see one part leaning against the wall.
Looking back towards the door more bits of table are in evidence. Having got to this stage I went outside and put up the solar powered PIR security light. Hopefully this will activate when visitors come through the side gate so they can find the door way in the dark. It'll also light the way to the back of the house.
The chest of drawers is another family heirloom, and the zamba metal shelving has lurked around for years. It was my original wargaming storage. The garage had purpose built shelving (as opposed to shelving built by accident) sized to my storage boxes. For the moment the zamba will have to do.
Now I'm moving more stuff in. The rolled up blue thing is my double sided sea & desert mat. Or it may be a square green play surface. It's a great thing. I got if from Chris Kemp of "Not Quiet Mechanised" when he ran a shop. It's two BIG vinyl advertising displays that you can paint and still remain flexible. The green boards leaning against the wall are participation game terrain boards I did for the Society of Ancients. One of them is The Trebia, from where my internet handle derives.
Having got all the terrain boxes in and tucked them under the table, it was time to start sorting out a game.These are my plastic Republican Romans and Carthaginians. Mostly HAT miniatures these are the figures that got me into ancient wargaming.
Looking a bit tidier now, and I've got some posters up. Would have been more, but I ran out of pins and sticky pads. Posters are mostly ECW & RCW. Plus a big one of a dalek.
Same idea, looking towards the door. You can see the "Cal it Qids" and "TEITR" game boards leaning up against the wall
So hopefully all set to go, for a lifetime's snug and fulfilling wargaming.
Not sure I even need to replace the table.
