We do WHAT we want, WHEN we want, WHERE we want!

Home sweet home...   Back from a business trip to Osaka where it rained bucketfuls (bad) and where I found a very cozy English-style pub (good).

No pictures of anything today, but I did find this amusing clip on YouTube. It's from the BBC TV series on Beau Brummell, where a pair of  Regency Dandies run into some (by then old-fashioned) Fops. 

For obvious reasons it struck me as being a funny metaphor for some of the strife that surfaces from time to time on the Napoleonic boards at TMP.  The next time someone tells me that I may as well be fantasy gaming for using 1812 uniforms in 1809 scenarios, or  hints that I'm in some way mentally deficient or lazy for painting the wrong shade of green on the shako pom-poms, I'll just post this in reply.




Love that line;  "...and they wash!..."

Hi Robert

I noticed that you are living in Japan. I saw the most amazing games room belonging to another guy in Japan. His name's David and he's in Fukuoka City in southern Japan. Anyway, here's a link to his site the KitaQ Gamers: http://www.atouchoftensai.com/club

Check out his 'Dungeon' wargaming room. Its quite something:

Interesting link! Thanks for that, though he is quite some distance from where I am here in Tokyo.

Glad you enjoy the blog, though it's been dormant of late as our club has been focussing on other games and periods. I really need to rectify that soon!
