Strangely I also remembered how enjoyable I'd found the game of Diplomacy on the same day. I never played the game ever again, probably because I had no one to play with me. And before anyone thinks how boring my life must be if I was reminiscing with old school friends about a metal toy, we did get through a lot of alcohol and also discuss how one of my friends experimented with fertilizer bombs and blew up an old shed as he prepared to start an anarchist rebellion. Ah those heady days of the early 1970's. No doubt we would have all been on remand or the reform programme.
Naturally I lost, but it was close. Unfortunately? I now want more Gallic warbands so I am trawling through my stuff looking for figures to paint. I did paint up this organ gun for my Burgundian's. I didnt need another one but I had purchased the Games Workshop, Da Vinci figure and wanted to paint him.The gun is a Redoubt piece that I glued upside down. Super glue is a bugger to separate, especially from ones fingers but I finally managed, not my best work but its done now.
