I have just relocated from Canberra to Perth, a distance of 3723km. This is roughly the same as from London to Moscow (if you are not a crow). The journey was part car and part train. Remarkably the breakages within my wargames collection have been few (although I’m still unpacking). A shield had fallen off a Hoplite, although this might have happened before the move; easily fixed. No damage to my ACW and in unpacking them I got around to a job I had been meaning to do for a while – about twenty stands were a few millimetres too deep, just enough to be annoying. A sharp knife and a lick of paint and they are now ready for service.
But I did find in my collection of perhaps best forgotten plastics that the spare chariot I was doing for my Ancient Britons DBA army had suffered a misfortune:
Is this a sign I should abandon my attempt to build a matched pair of Airfix Romans and Ancient Britons for DBA?
