Frostgrave -1

Before I start, first let me apologise for the very bright figures, they were painted about 15 years ago when I was into bright colours!

At the club yesterday 4 of us sat down to play Frostgrave.

Ian who had to make his warband and wizard on the day, played a "Witch".

Relfy who purchased the rules Played a Necromancer.

Kev who read the rules Played an Elementalist

While I played an Enchanter. I have yet to read the rules but I have watched a few youtube games so I did have a clue.

Firstly let me say I did get lucky on the starting out of game spell casting, And did manage to summon a medium and a small construct (Wizard and apprentice each rolled high, so my starting force was. (all seen in the first picture, and all from other games mostly from my "Empire" Army, dressed in the red and Blue of Altdorf!)
  • 1 Wizard (Enchanter) With the feather.
  • 1 Apprentice Holding a scroll
  • 3 Infantry each with a halberd (2 handed weapon)
  • 3 Archers (bows and daggers)
  • 1 Medium construct (the Warmachine chicken robot!)
  • 1 Small construct. (The chest)
One of my pregame decisions was to go for spells that were easy to cast. In fact I went for the following: (Enchanter)- Animate Construct- enchant armour- Telekinesis, (Witch) Poison dart.
(Elementalist) Wall. (Sigilist) Absorb Knowledge. And "Leap" and "Heal" from neutral schools. This would mean that no spell would be more than 14+ (d20) even for an apprentice so I should be able to get most of them cast IF I chose to enhance them.

I was informed we were starting the campaign so my tactics were to just grab the loot and leap the soldiers off of the board. At the end of the game though they all decided that the campaign would start next time!!! (In Fairness to Ian he wanted that from the very start, but Kev and Relfie.... not so much!) That's my little gripe over but I would have played the game differently if I had n
known from the start. Still I can see the logic  of a pre-campaign game to get us used to it so not really too much of an issue!

WE all played on 1/2 a table tennis table, each on one side but no figure could be targeted if they had not been activated. The terrain was a real mix and match, a little of everything, So while it may not look all that good it did serve it's purpose very well by breaking up the board. All the shots were taken from where I sat, with Relfie on the left, Ian Opposite and Kev on my right. Relfie usually attacks me in games like this, but he said on this day he would not and true to his word he did not at all, the closet he came was lining up a crossbow but not firing it at me. But I can never trust another player to do what they say so I did expect him to attack me and I am sure he will in the future, probably the next game!

As we were all learning the rules the game was slow as we checked things each time. (Thank goodness I had watched Youtube!) But in the first few turns Kevin used "Telekinesis" to move a purple treasure gem closer to himself. And As I activated after him I cast the same (useful spell) to move it back. He did it again with his Apprentice. But I failed. (Kev's warband shown to the right) .

Relfie and Ian both moved up and we all manouvered about a bit. While I was trying to do group activations my warband with constructs was too big so I would always have spare soldiers to activate at the end of the turn. So in the second turn having failed to move the purple gem (loot maker) I got my wizard to cast wall instead The blue gem on the laying down wall representing the magically cast wall. This blocked the line of sight so he could not cast telekinesis on the game this turn. So instead He targeted Ian's wizard with an Elemental bolt. Which did a lot of damage. I learnt from this. Wizards in the open are a good choice of target. As Ian did not have a heal spell I also learnt ALWAYS have a heal spell! Ian did try casting steal health, but failed and did not have enough health left to enhance it!

Turn 3 was pretty much rinse and repeat. Kev got initiative cast the spell again and Ian was minus his wizard for the rest of the game. Relfy was also attacking Ian (who had supplies  of biscuits but not of sufficient quality to stop anyone attacking him.) Ian's and Relfy's foot soldiers were having their own private war so far across the table as to have no impact on me. kev was also piling on the pressure with Ians troops as well as well as me (to a much lesser extent) Which did allow me to het a loot counter off of the table. (I  got 4 in all and was going for my 5th when the game ended but more of that later!)

I managed to cast another wall cutting Kevs Wizard off from both retreat and his apprentice. Some random "wandering" monsters appeared close to my archer (2 zombies), but far enough away that I would not attract them.

I was then able to send an infantry man to attack Kevs mage. The Third thing to learn is that 2 handed weapons hurt. As I inflicted 7 points on the elementalist. I rolled badly in the constructs battle and he took 5 damage and was pushed back! The fourth thing I learnt was that even if you start hand to hand you can still loose, take damage and get pushed back if you roll badly no matter how powerful you may think you are.
I cast enhance armoutr on the infantryman attacking the wizard and while it did work the variation of d20's is so large +1 is of little real value! My Construct and Infantryman died quickly hereafter. But My infantryman had weakened the mage sufficiently that my archer managed to plug him between the eyes and that was the second wizard out of the game.

The game was winding up so by casting "Leap" from my wizaed on the guy carrying the loot and once more by my apprentice I was able to run two figures carrying loot of of the table and leap a third all in one turn. F0r a total of 4 counters as well as move one of my last figure adjacent to another loot counter but not to pick it up.

Both Ian and kev also lost their apprentice very soon after but that was the other end of the board and I was on a loo break! The game ended when Kev lost his final crossbow man who was trying to escape of of the board with loot.

COINCLUSION> Well I will claim a win for me, as I did manage to cat 10 spells in all (wizard and apprentice) as well as get 4 "loot counters" off of the board. I managed exactly 300 exp, 280 gold, two Grimours (Control Construct and Draining word) and two magic weapons (both +1 fight)

No other wizard was within 100 exp of me or with so much loot. So Like I said I count it as a win. No figure died in the entire game one (Ians Apprentice I think) was wounded and would miss the next game.) But generally a very low leathality rate or maybe we all just got good dice rolls (I know mine were)

But most importantly here is what I learnt!

  1. Do not leave a wizard in the open to be attacked.
  2. Always have a way of healing (Spell, potion etc!)
  3. 2 Handed weapons cause damage!
  4. Do not try to fight 2 opponents at once. (I did not but Kev id and Ian had to)
  5. Enchant armour is no substitute for a bad or good dice roll
  6. Archers can kill wizard!
  7. Wizards killing soldiers with spells  is good EXP. (exp for the Kill and EXP for the spell.)
  8. Constructs are not that powerful, BUT can carry loot
Generally my tactics did work, but I am not sure I will pick an enchanter for the campaign. I do like them, but the enchant weapon and enchant armour spells are not terribly good (+1 on D20)  but they would allow you to attack magical creatures. And Constructs are also on the so-so side and not super powerful which are the main reason to play them.

As to what I will play I have little idea at this stage but you will get told as and when it happens.

BUF Part 6 (and group shot!)

Well this is the 6th posting of the British Union of Fascists and Brings all of Matts BUF to completion. Unless of course he has gone out and bought some more in which case I am lying!

So we have an NCO and two gun crew along with a gun. They are again all footsore/musketeer miniatures in 28mm and once again Matt has done a sterling job head swapping before they get to me! So no credit for me in the head swaps although I do approve of them so very much.

The MG is hiding behind clump foliage this time and while it is only soft cover it will at least conceal them until they open fire. But wearing so much red maybe concealment is not their first thought!

And at the bottom (once you get past a few blurry photos) there is a group shop of all the troops going back to Matt this weekend.

As always have fun and get some painting done. You really should you know!

All the best Clint

BUF (Part 5)

There will be a part 6 as I still have 2 figures to paint! But after that I have no idea if there will be any more. Maybe, maybe not!

Again all painted for Matt and all "footsore/musketeer miniatures) except the one on the right who is a Copplestone castings. Again all head swaps carried out by Matt and the monkey just slaps the paint on! (Sometims with a big brush (GW tank brush at times!)and sometimes with a small brush.... a very small bush)

I have said it all before about the figures, they are nice castings and I believe fit the period 
very well. I have seen different colour schemes for the figures of course some of which have been very good, but these I suspect suit me best. Matt did originally suggest grey trousers, but he has now come around to the Khaki look as it gives them a more military look than all black and grey so I thank him for his indulgence.

Only a few more figures to go on this batch, I did want them finished yesterday but time just  got away from me.  So expect the last few in a couple of days and a group shot of them all together.

That's it all the best for now. Take care have fun and get some painting done if you can.

Cheers Clint

Post script: I only mention Paint monkey when painting for someone else!

Frostgrave 1

I have been invited to play "Frostgrave" on the weekend. So I have started to watch Youtube videos on how to play the game and read what I can online.

Not the ideal way, but getting some ideas. So while I wait for paint to dry on the next batch of figures for Matt (more BUF). I quickly gave this old chest a lick of paint to make it more "Frostgrave" like. Whatever that is.

so while the serious painting is underway I thought to get a few bits and pieces dome. Only the chest finished though, but I expect a full warband re-painted and based before the weekends game.

So this blog post today is just to acknowledge that I am now interested in getting a Frostgrave force together.

I hope to post aging tomorrow with some VBCW figures, it is just that the paint seems to be taking a very long time to dry today.

Cheers Clint

Well this is very different!

 Before you say anything, This is not what I look like in the morning! Honest it is not. No it really is not!

But it is a Games Workshop Rhino! Well that is how it started.  And you can still see it underneath 1/2 a packet of miliput! This is not for me, but for my nephew, who has now given up on ORKS and is doing Chaos Marines instead. I know youngsters what can you do. So I started with a very old beaten up plastic Rhino that I got at a boot fair and set about making a possessed version. The down side is that it is pretty delicate and I expect it to break on it's first outing to a GW shop! Look we all just know it will, so no point worrying or crying or complaining it is just what kids are like. And I had all the fun of making it!

I actually started with the rolling stones tongue then built up the teeth, then cheeks and eyes and boy did I have some fun (erhm frustration)! The two arms are from old Tyranids and the Tail is from a stegadon as are the two fangs at the front. Every other change is miliput!

A simple paint job and a dirty up and we are done! My personal favourite part is the green putrid wart on the tongue. But I am nasty like that!

I would be tempted to make something else for him like this BUT I would rather encourage him to make his own and not rely on GW! To me that is one of the hobby joys and especially when you are doing something like Chaos to make it your own!

 Hopefully he will like it enough to look after it! If not "If I can Make it once I can surely repair it!" That assumes he will let me and not just get bored with it like he has the killer cans I gave him.

That's it for today, something a little different for me but it would be boring if I always did the same things! Back to more VBCW figures next!

All the best Cheers Clint

BUF ( part 4)

yes I am continuing to paint for my good friend Matt. And yes it is more BUF! All 28mm Footsore miniatures but with head swaps and peaked caps and not side caps.  The peaked caps give them a great alternative look and I strongly approve of what Matt has done. I have retained the same palette as last time but adapted it very slightly for the head swaps. They still have black jackets and khaki jodhpurs and puttees and khaki caps. I have kept the red collars and cuffs and some red piping to give them that military feel.

The Flag is again from Solway and was originally painted by Pete Barfield (aka Panzer Kaput!) and helps to unify the figures. Mat clearly likes his flag bearers as almost all of his units carry flags and it does give them a great look.

I painted 8 figures altogether 4 with rifles and the last one with a sub machine gun. There are more coming (they are undercoated as I type this), so expect them pretty soon. Together with the other figures for the BUF this is now looking like quite a sizeable force.

Finally I missed it out last time, but here is a rear shot! No big surprises but you may notice the stripes on the helmets. These were again done to identify and unify the troops. I did think to do a solid Black stripe, but changed my mind at the last moment.

So that is it for today. Thanks for popping by and looking. I have about the same again to finish and then a group shot at the end.

Cheers Guys.

I went to a show and forgot my camera!

Still here is my meagre loot from the day.

The "huey" model was on the bring and buy and only cost £2. What a bargain I though. It would be rude not to buy it for just £2, so I did. Now despite my club suggesting that I might have enough "Hueys" I have not got many ay all, even less if we differentiate between "Slicks" and "hogs" and "medevac slicks" and (I also have a crashed one) they really are all vital if I want to lift a Platoon into place. I had best build a kit or two this week as I have a game in a fortnight. So FNG will get an outing at last,

As for bases, they are of course from Colonel Bill as I know he does a lot of shows and always has them so I know I can always rely on him.

WE did have 8 club members at the show (6 of us putting on a game), and 2 with only "morning kitchen passes!" And I think I spent the least money this time out (I usually don't) as there were a few bargains for certain people. And a couple of things I missed out on, and am now regretting. Drat!

Three of the Rejects were also there so expect a show report from Ray sometime soon.

All the best Clint

PBB Game 2 (Zombies?)

I am about to Start PBB game no 2. Having had a couple of false starts I am keeping it small and low key this year, maybe bigger next, who knows.

There are currently 3 slots open for players on a first come first served basis. This will be more roleplay/skirmish than big battle. I will need 3 characters.

1 Troop commander. (yes they will be in charge )
1 Vehicle Driver, (WIMIK)
1 Vehicle Gunner. (40mm Auto Grenade Launcher)

Much like the last PBB game it is all experimental and therefore likely to go wrong so if it does please forgive me. But If you want to play this year you are welcome.

There will be 6 players in all and 3 spaces have already joined.

Cpl. Ian "Coop" (Shelldrake) Cooper, (2ic,)Vehicle Driver
Pvt. Simon "Brum" Quinton 50. Cal Gunner
Pvt. Kasper "Frog" Froberg. (Mechanic or Medic yet to be decided and the Bosses choice, not his!))

I will be using the "TOTAL AR:SE" rules but you do not need a copy as I am happy to give one to you, or they are free on the interweb thingie IF you can find them. (I could not and had to be shown). A couple of rule amendments will need to be made for PBB and Roleplaying, but generally the same rules.

By Roleplaing I am not so interested in every word spoken but in actions of a single figure!

There are some mission clues in the pictures, (nothing at all cryptic) The setting is purely imaginary and is not meant to exist in the real world but some nebulous setting in North Africa or the middle east. IT WILL NOT BE A HISTORICAL GAME

I was hoping to start the game today, but a couple of hand picked players have not managed to get in touch with me hence the open call for 3 more players.

SO If you want to play, Please leave a comment and email me at Clintburnettagain (at)Hotmail(dot) C0m. Please read other comments and if someone before you has asked for a specific role respect them and select another. Every player will be able to try anything maybe just the once though but to a LESSER EXTENT THAN THE SPECIALISTS.

All I need at this stage is 3 players and my first job will be to give you Nicknames suitable for your character and the British army setting.

It is first come first served and I am ready to go. So should start next Saturday with turns each weekend thereafter.

That's it for now. All the best Clint

Naughty or Nice?

Have you been naughty?
Well this year I have signed up to be a secret Santa, actually I have signed up to be two.

 You may know that Ian runs one at runs an annual Secret Santa Project for poor misunderstood unfortunate wargamers. Well as I am one I thought to join in.

Here are the rules (Taken from his Blog)

Below are the rules in a little more detail.

1. To enter you need to either have a blog or be a regular follower of this blog already. This is to give confidence to all involved that everyone will follow through to the end. If you have a blog and don't follow this one it's OK to join in.

2. The present should be around £15 plus postage (best to buy the present actually in the country the receiver lives in so cutting down postage costs)

3. It's OK to have a wish list but it's just as good to buy something you think the person would like. Blog details of your target are given so you can snoop.

4. Whilst it's not essential it really added to Cath's enjoyment when the SS checked in with her to let her know target had incoming.

5. You should promote the Secret Santa on your blog to hopefully increase the numbers joining in.

6. You should sign up by 1st November so to allow time for picking gifts.

7. Gifts should arrive by 20th December if possible. It's fine to get the supplier to send direct and I would be cheeky and ask them to gift wrap  ;-)

8. Item/s should be wargame related though it's OK to throw in something odd if you want to.

Well that's all I can think of at the moment regards rules etc. You have right up to the 1st of November to sign up but I would appreciate some early birds as it makes organising it that much easier. I will need the blog name and an e-mail address for you (plus your real name)
Something nice to look at. If you are on the Nice list.

9. You can sign up by sending me an email via the gadget to the right of the posts or details in the comments section.  Those returning only need to let me know they are in again and any change of details as Cath has last years details.
So you have until November 1 if you are interested. In Joining the fun.
Additionally: A second Secret Santa run by Chris can be found Here. 
And here are his rules..
Rule number 1:
To enter you need to either have a blog or be a regular follower of this blog (or Ian's) already. This is to give confidence to all involved that everyone will follow through to the end. If you have a blog and don't follow this one it's OK to join in. (I would still appreciate it if you did follow)
Rule number 2:
The idea is that each person involved buys a figure or figures to the value of less than £5 and paints them up to fit in with what the target blogger wargames or collects. Best would be some kind of command for the bigger scales but maybe a unit or two of such as 6mm or a building or... you get the idea.
Rule number 3:
Please try to send out your items so that they will arrive by December 20th in plenty of time for the big day. I will send out who you have on September 30th.
Rule number 4:
Please post on your blog about your participation. The more we can get on board, the more fun for all of us.
Rule number 5:
This is not intended to be a cheap alternative to Ian's Secret SantaTM. Instead it is a great opportunity to send and receive something that will be special BECAUSE it's a one off from a fellow blogger. Not that you have to limit yourself to something useful, feel free to paint up something that will just sit aside the painting desk or study etc and just give pleasure.
So having entered them both I thought to give my prospective Secret Santas a few Hints (Un -subtle).
Firstly though If you think of something I would Like that is not on the list, get it I am sure I will like it no matter what and it may be something I would not have thought of.
But if you want to be safe and sure I will love it, here are a few suggestions. Top right is a gadget which has the suggestions listed in alphabetical order. I went Alphabetically so not to sway your opinions.
V= Virgin Project so you are guaranteed to get me something I just do not have.
I have put a picture by each idea so you should not miss any that way. But I know I would no matter what anyone else did!
15mm Dark Age  (Viking, Norman, Saxon, Welsh, Carolingian, Rus  etc) . It is not that I want to play DBA, but "Longship" by Peter Pig and amix of troop qualities is preferred to all elites. Any make is fine by me but I do Like Essex. Other makes are also wanted, can you tell I am not that fussy, but I do not like Donnington. But any other 15mm dark age figures are appreciated.

V Lovecraft Horror. 28mm. I am thinking in the new year of starting some Lovecraft horror Wargaming. As such I would be looking for Deepones, Hybrids, Fishermen, Cultists and the like. sell them all if you did not know where to find them. Takes me back to my youth of playing Call of C'thulhu, Maybe a second childhood is approaching nah I have not left the first one yet!
V Ice Age animals. 28mm. For a while now I have been thinking about LEWIS and CLARKE mapping America and Canada. I had wondered what it would be like if they came across a lost world. can you imagine a game wher Mountain men armed with a Musket would try to hunt Smiladon or mammoths. Gosh that would be a squeaky bum time! But you know some fool (brave soul) would! Dee Zee miniatures have them on eBay on occasion, but as a new project any manufacture would do,
V Naval wargames from "Transition Period to Modern Day" I have never really gotten into Naval wargames in the past as I was put of by some bad experiences in my teens. But now I am Older (much older) I am ready to have another try at this style of wargames. As it is a New project I am not fixed on a manufacture or scale (but small is good) or even setting. So feel free to go crazy anything from 1905 Russian Japanese, to Greenpeace anti whaling is good for me. perhaps WW2 Pacific has the widest choice though.
Pendraken 10 mm I would look to increase my 10mm Samurai armies(No Peasants though.) As I canalways use extra 10mm Sams Just for continuity I would stick to Pendraken as other manufactures tend not to fit in too well with the armies I already have.
V. Pendraken 10mm Mongols. I have none and while they could be used to fight against my Samurai armies they would realistically be slightly too early so I am actually thinking of  using them for "Lion Rampant" or even "Dragon Rampant" as they would be a nice nomadic force  and I have always like horse armies. Even If I am rubbish at using them. So no Infantry please.
V Pendraken 10mmWW1 Turkish. It may seem odd to ask for
WW1 Turkish troops when I have no interest in Galipoli as a wargame. But there is a whole theatre of war that is seldom looked at in WW1 Palestine. I would choose Turkish troops to start with as I am not sure if I will want to start my 10mm Arab revolt force before Christmas or not. But as another club member already has started a Imperial force starting the Turks might be a good idea as I will have someone to fight straight away without having to paint 2 armies!
Pendraken 10mm Colonial. I already have enough 10mm Zulus and British. So maybe More Marhdists (I am short of Cavalry and Camalry) but I have no Egyptians if you want to keep it in the Sudan. But I would be very interested as well in the NW Frontier (again no British) Afghani Tribesmen, The dress and clothing of the Afghanis has not altered very much so Afghani Tribesman could be used to fight anything from Napoleonic Battles (1st Anglo Afghan war) all the way through the colonial perion to the 5th Anglo Afghan war ( Not much of a war as it only lasted a few days) and nothing to really wargame all very one sided.
V Van Helsing 28mm. Taking inspiration from the film of the same name, We have werewolves,witches Vampires and Villagers. As well as Heroes and Villains. I would be looking to use the "Songs of Blades and Heroes" rules to create some skirmish games. . Figure wise I would look at vampire wars by Westend Games or perhaps any ECW figures for village militia or town watch. This really is a very open subject so feel free to let your imagination run wild. Maybe a Frankenstein's Monster or a Fu Manchoo  or Crooked Dice Scarecrows, or a gypsy caravan or two.
V Western Desert WW2. 6mm (Heroics and Ross preferred). I would like to start using FOW in 6mm Western Desert. Italians, British (and Commonwealth) or Germans preferred but US troops were also present. I like the early - mid war period best before the German Big cats come along. £15 would easily be enough for a company with support for any of the three nations listed, 2 companies if you just got tanks! I already have a 6 MM desert board with Terrain and have been greatly Inspired by Big Lee (but don't tell him). So an easy project to start and finish..
Anything else. well yes As mentioned I do have a desert board (in 2 different scales, -6mm and 20mm) So Arab Israeli wars or Imperial Rome in the desert or biblical in 6mm or crusades or French foreign Legion (Riff war) or anything you can think of that I would Like. But any of the suggestions above are the easy and obvious choices. Most of the above (but not all) periods have firearms, so perhaps that is another clue. But the choice really is yours as I know I will be happy with any wargame stuff, brushes and paints included! But no underwear please as I still believe in Santa!
I hope to have given my secret Santa a few Ideas. Mostly it is about fun and having a good game. So whomever my Secret Santa is I hope they can enjoy my choices as much as I have enjoyed Voicing them. Good Luck to you who ever you are and I hope I have given you more than enough to choose from.
Cheers Clint

All together now! (BUF part 3)

Yes here is the British Union of Fascists (BUF) figures I have painted for Matt. They are mostly Musketeer Miniatures as mentioned in previous posts, but there are a couple from other sources.  It is not a competition to find them. see Below.

All painted for Matt and he will get them back on the weekend. then I will only see them when they are on the tabletop fighting against me. I really have enjoyed painting these and would welcome doing more. There are 21 in all but some are hidden behind others so you may have to take my word on that.

In the last picture the central figure is a Copplestone Castings to represent an officer. While the one on the right is a conversion carried out by Matt, and painted by me. Lastly the one on the left is a Musketeer Miniatures.

Right that is it for today More again soon, (Probably Thursday) when I talk about this years Play by blog game. It will be more roleplaying than wargaming and places are severely limited, but more of this on Thursday.

Cheers Clint.

BUF (Part 2)

Well it was going to happen sooner or later, and probably sooner! So here is Part 2 of Matts British Union of Fascists. This time an MG team. As with the previous figures they are 28mm Musketeer Miniatures sold in this Country by Footsore Miniatures.

We have the MG Loader, Gunner and Sargent commanding the team. All nice figures and all well cast and sculpted. Only one of these has bathed in Dettol so you can see when dried of and painted they do not come out to Bad at all.

Overall I am quite happy with them, as always there are things to do differently.

In Part 3, oh yes there will be a part 3 on Tuesday. I will show the other figures, the officers and a group shot of them all together. And then they are all done, unless Matt buys some more.

Thanks for Looking today and the others are nearly done, just some finishing off and tidying up to do! So with luck see you again on Tuesday.

All the best Clint

BUF (Part 1)

Getting back on my painting schedule after the Dettol Fiasco! Long story don't ask but I will confirm the Wilko's BROWN antibacterial solution does also work and is cheaper than Dettol!

Anyway back to the figures. Today we have the first British Union of Fascists (BUF) painted and finished. For those few who do not know the Very British Civil War. The BUF control London and a lot of the South East of England and are currently fighting the Anglican League who hold the rest of Kent (Along with many other places) and waging battles either side of the river Medway.  I personally live about 3/4 of a mile from the river so needles to say it is part of a VBCW that has sparked my interest.

The figures are "Musketeer Miniatures" Sold in the UK by Footsore Miniatures. They are 28mm tall and are very nicely sculpted. The faces all look very young and that is my only criticism. The Flag was sold by Solway and painted by Pete Barfield, who does so many of the flags.

They are of course for Mat and his ever growing collection and I will have 2 more batches to finish. So that should tell you what the next few blog posts will be. And YES I will do a group shot at the end!

Thanks for looking today and with luck and a fair wind more again on Saturday!
Have fun, enjoy your life and I hop to see you back here soon.
Cheers Clint
