600 followers and Samurai Display Game Teaser Picture.

The weekend really got away from me, between SWMBO's obsession with chicken, duck and turkey rearing (mostly for eggs and breeding) and some sick newborns, picture me sitting in the chair for hours with a chicken inside my sweatshirt struggling to get out of it's shell and live (the previous one had died in it's shell but another two got out), in between all this I nearly have set up the table with a samurai display game and got to take a picture quite late last night to whet the appetite. The chicken made it by the way. What we do for love!

Thanks for following, reading and commenting, I really appreciate it or as the Irish would say "Go raibh maith agat".


Ronin exit the castle to meet the ashigaru head on..........

  13. 600 followers! How? In what electornic medium are you prostituting yourself to get 600 followers! And I dread to think what inducements you might be offering. Seriously man, its shameful. LMAO

    Well done on the milestone and the new chicken. In fact come to think of it your proabably one of only a handful of wargamers that can claim to have spent the weekend snuggling up to a young chick. I wouldn't mention the eggshell/hatching thing when you repeat the story, it sort of ruins the illusion.

  37. Wow, that's a lot of followers. Also, this battle looks epic.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow at this rate you'll be at 1000 soon.

    That battle looks cool but those yari ashigaru don't stand a chance.

    What you need is a large backdrop or poster with Mt. Fuji to put up on the wall behind.

  54. First of all, congrats on the 600 followers, or more closer to your liking; 2 units of Thermopylae defenders!!

    It's cool picturing you with a baby chick struggling for life in your shirt. It's a nice contrast to thinking of you as a bloodthirsty strategic savant all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow, 600! I'm envious. Of the followers and the samurai.

    That battle looks like it's going to be epic.

    ReplyDelete
