Times they are a changing !

Morning All

It is with a sad (but also excited) heart that I can report that the last game has been fought in my current Shed. 

For those of you unaware Mrs Shed and I have spent the last 18months planning to move from Surbiton in SW London to pastures new and this of course meant leaving my beloved games room behind. Today I am delighted to report that we have now (finally) exchanged and completed on a new property.

We are in a fortunate position to be staying in our existing home for a couple of months before moving into the new pad. 

The new place is best described as a doer-upper although this description may well be generous. What I can say is that we have bought a rather eclectic almost derelict property with several outbuildings all sitting inside 10 acres of beautiful mature woodland. Better still its only just outside the M25 and about 30 minutes from where we currently live.

One of the outbuildings is a large timber building (complete with toilet and kitchenette) which could become my new games room. The alternative is a large 40ft long garage. Much will depend upon Mrs Shed. Ultimately the plan is to have the new games room up and running by spring of next year, this does mean games will be few and far between with much of my time focussed on the new project.

Pictures will be posted in next post ....

plus whilst I have been waiting for the endless saga of property exchange to take place I have cracked on with my Ancient Greeks - 600 Hoplites and 300 Phalangites now painted. Again pictures in a new post soon.
