Clutter and more Clutter

Packing up your home is always stressful,but packing up a wargames room beats that hands down.
 Although there was a delay [expected] in exchanging contracts,I am moving in late October.However dismantling my room is very daunting,where did all this stuff come from. I seem to have hoarded various pieces of polystyrene,cardboard,old paint,sand and scatter flock ad infinitum.
 I am not certain when I decided that BLUE flock was necessary,but I have found a bag of it,why I have it is anyones guess.I have moved 80+ terrain boards to my temporart home,but still have another 20 to shift.Remarkably they seem in very good condition,barring the odd chip.Having seen them it makes me doubly keen to build a new room and finally see all my wargaming ideas come to fruition.
 I have just purchased a decent number of Dixon SYW prussians from E bay at a very decent price. They are nice figures,and will do perfectly for a minor German contingent. My metal mountain has however grown to Ben Nevis proportions and as soon as I settle down again I must crack on with the backlog. I have also got hold of a couple of the new Jackdaw French dragoons, so another unit will have to be bought just in case there is a meteorite that hits Old Glory HQ and wipes out there production.
 The one thing that has kept me going is my drawing of my hopefully final wargames room,so when things get stressful as they will and do, I can whip out the sketch and get on with it.

  1. Think positively . . . imagine being able to use ALL of those terrain boards at once on a single table top.

    Okay, maybe that's a bit much . . . but let thoughts of a nice big table (with good lighting and lots of storage) calm your tensions, sir.

  2. I feel your pain, having had to clear out a great deal of material from my workshed when I emigrated. As Jeff wisely says, the prospect of the new room should be wonderfully soothing. ;)
