Tales From GHQ is seemingly 10 years old today!
Of course it replaced my older Freewebs site, when it lapsed while we were away in Australia, so I've been posting pictures of my figures and games for even longer. It never ceases to amaze me that so many folk troop by to take a look, though I do confess to irritation that so relatively few bother to comment. To those loyal contributors I owe a debt, you keep me focused when often I wonder why I bother. Of course GHQ would be a pretty lonesome place without my wargaming friends, especially life long friend Phil, so it's fitting he should feature in prime position in this post. It's also fitting that the game you see was an ACW affair, as the first picture I posted featured my favourite figures for the period from Dixon Miniatures!
The last twenty months or so have been the strangest most of us will ever have experienced as adults, probably I was just too young to appreciate the serious situation around the Cuban missile crisis. There's no getting away though from the serious impact the Coronavirus pandemic has had, and still has really, on all our lives. Throughout all the associated malarky our wonderful hobby has both sustained us, motivated us and eased any mental health problems. Certainly it has kept the black dog mostly at bay for me.
When we couldn't manage face-to-face gaming I was sustained by the myriad blogs and their associated remote gaming reports from friends both physical and etherial. In my own small way I hope that my blog has helped someone else through this time, and sadly times still to come it seems. KBO must be the Order of the Day for us all! Better times will return, perhaps sooner than we fear, in the meantime we have our family, friends, and our wonderful hobby! So, a few images to hopefully cheer if not inspire ~
