Mini-break (“mini”, geddit?)

Working on a few odds and ends, including finally basing my blood bowl figs, while I’m out at the lake this week.

Fun in the sun

My wife and I just got back from a week in Cancun. Great fun and a nice break from the long Winnipeg winter.

Apart from the rest and relaxation (i.e., the beach, eating and drinking like kings, and a bit of shopping), we also fit in some culture and history with visits to the Museo Maya De Cancun (including the San Miguelito Archeological Site) and Chichen Itza.

On a gaming related note, I managed to find four Matchbox ’43 Jeeps at the Cancun WalMart (I’d been looking at home but hadn’t spotted any). With a little conversion work, these make excellent WWII vehicles at a ridiculously low price (I think they were about $1.40 each).
