…I wish I had them planned out. I’ve often considered that having no plan is in fact a plan. Thursday night I busted out the Orks down at the club for a little game. Thankfully this time there was no Space Marine tanks that I couldn’t bust open. It was great fun watching the Eldar bounce around and pop off all their crazy moves. And then realise that being massively outnumbered means that they still had to run away. They were left with 3 men standing before my men failed a morale check and finally ran off. Still a 1 on 1 combat with an Exarch vs a Nob with Power Klaw will not be forgotten. 3 hits. And no wounds. In the words of an ancient wise man. Also came up with a new painting idea which is simple, but produces a nice effect.

I’ve had a week break from school. I’ve had some ideas, and tomorrow I’ll be starting m next batch of lesson plans. A bit like war-gaming, teaching seems to be about picking the right fight, and knowing when to take a defeat or a failure with good humour. We’ll see what happens when I get back. As I’m fully in charge of the lessons. I’m concerned how I’ll cope. But if I don’t try I will never know!. I just can’t believe how much paper-work I generate. Apparently it gets easier after the first 4 years.
Finally on a personal note I’ve had some great beer research this weekend. Including a dangerous Sly Fox ‘Incubus‘, and trip to Liverpool for some craft delights, and a trip to two breweries in one day. Which is also a personal first! I’ve also now reached a point where I had someone come up and talk to me about beery things I’ve done, knew my name and people I know. I felt bad until he admitted he knew of me, but I’d never met him. A Leg-End in my own small town? Also sad for the first time in years I had to have a ‘tactical chunder’ before I could focus. That will remind me not to pay £8 for a beer bottle of Stone ‘Arrogant Bastard’ and then try and down it because I didn’t realise everyone was leaving the bar.
