Hey all.

Not much been happening, unsurprisingly. Have been painting my way through some of the 40K Indomitus box. Built and painted the Necron characters, built some of the Necron Warriors, and a few of the Marines. Been painting the new Mephiston model, almost finished, as well as a few other 40k minis that have inspired me to paint them. Lost my painting mojo for a while there in the summer, but it's back.

Wave 1 of the BattleTech Clan Invasion kickstarter should be arriving in October, so looking forward to getting paws on that. Been racking up the hours on the PC game in anticipation of that coming out. New Aliens board game from Gale Force 9 is due released soon too, tempted to pick the core set of that up.

Hope everyone is okay. Have we heard from those non tech-savvy members that don't frequent the forums?

How's everyone keeping? We've gone a bit quiet. I know I was being bothered by my back & the sniffles so have been out of it a bit in the last couple of weeks. And it was Farmer's Festival on Lord of the Rings online, I must admit to being a little distracted by that.

Been in and out of hospitals, nothing new there. I quite liked the warlords gauls except for the sprues are very samey although you can vary them a bit plus the lack of shields, I see I will need to spend a fiver to get the ones on an extra sprue. I am not so sure about the early imperial romans, the weapon arms didn't seem to sit exactly right, I trimmed a few to get the arms to seat better, I can't really moan too much seeing I got them at a good price.

Good, you? Very similar situation to you (didn't paint a thing in June or July) but starting to get back into it last couple of weeks. Built all the Warlord Roman's and Gauls I got in the SPQR starter set but I'm selling Scot R the Gauls and going for Victrix ones myself. Hopefully we should know by this time next month what the church's plans are for the halls Smile

How is everyone? All busy painting away ?. I seem to have lost my painting mojo , just doing bits here and there , I have build up all the 28mm Gauls and Early Imperial Romans that got in the boxed set but have only painted 10 Gauls. Also made a start on my 10mm Malburians but I haven’t done any for a couple of weeks now .

Yes David, it's a great site. I have used the maps often for F&F scenarios. Videos are good too.

Eddie, I happened to be roaming around on You Tube, as happens these days, and found the American Battlefield Trust page with lots of Animated battles and battlefield talks. Don't know if you already know about them and watch their videos.

We will be returning when the Church Session let me know it is safe to do so.
When we return we have already paid for the first two weeks, I have been informed of this by the treasurer. We will be welcomed back I have no doubt.
I am painting Oathmark Elves they could also pass as Normans at a push. Also painting at long last a large selection of boats for 'cruel seas/narrow seas mtb WW2 rules 28 boats and 4 small cargo ships( made by Ian ) and once again a large number of 15mm ACW figures( need to stop collecting these )
Look forward to seeing the Infamy, Infamy rules as I have a few Gauls and Romans that I could use for it I think ?
Hope you are all well.

Thanks for the update Ed. We dont need to worry about who can go, will we need to pay for the room even if we're not using it etc until the contact Ed again to say the halls are open so we have a couple more months wiggle room. Need to get back to painting as I haven't done any since the end of May Sad

Grrr forum decided not to send me any emails again.

I did think that the Church wouldn’t open up to groups too quickly anyway, too risky when the congregation is mostly elderly, and that includes some of us old codgers as well !!.
It may well be next year before we can meet up again. All the precautions you have all said will become the norm anyway, especially as the hall we use has playgroups meetings throughout the week, just think of all those grubby germ ridden wee hands running around touching everything. The upside is when we do eventually get the club up and running again we will have lots of new rules and armies to try out.

Hi folks
Just received an email from the Minister regarding opening up the halls to user groups. On Tuesday the Kirk Session met and decided that their halls will not be open yet to user groups for at least the next two months. Next meeting is mid September where a decision on the matter will once again be made.
So at best we might start up again in October at worst who knows ? Might be after the winter but hopefully before that.
Hope this helps and information has came at a timely moment.

Ed

Well before you do anything you need to see what the church says. I know the Auld Kirk is begining to make plans to re-open, but that is only the church for limited capacity socially distanced services. I don't think there are plans for organisations returning yet. It all depends what their risk assessment decides.

You have to remember its not just what we are doing and looking after ourselves and immediate families, there are other people in and out the halls if they open them fully. Can you be sure everyone is wearing masks and being responsible all the time?

@Scot R Good luck with getting Mick not to touch other people's figures.

I think we need to contact them to see what their plans are ie social distancing and hygiene, how many people will be allowed in the room etc

So should I contact them as I planned about a return in September ? Is it viable to rent the hall if only 5 or less members return at this date I am suggesting ?
What do you think.

Didn't expect to be back before September anyway, but I'm happy to return then, and try and be in as much as possible.

I think by the time we return, especially with the great work done here in Scotland to reduce the impact of the virus, social distancing will be at 1m anyway, when combined with other measures.

Seems masks are here for the forseeable future, and as awkward and uncomfortable as they may be, you do get used to them - despite being exempt due to being asthmatic, I've been wearing mine for between 5 and 9 hours at work, and after a while you get used to them. Simple rules like having a personal supply of hand sanitizer, not touching other people's dice or models (someone will need to explain that to Mick!), bringing flasks or bottles rather than using the cups and kettle, etc should be enough to get us back on track.

I can let them know we don't plan to return any time soon if the majority would prefer ?
Happy to do either option as September might be to early for phase 4 of our Scottish government plan anyway.

Physical distancing would not be easy as wearing a mask would be a pain as well, we can a least wait until end of August beginning of September and see how it is all progressing.

I know Ian said he would not be rushing back soon. I can't see Bill rushing back either. I am undecided, but probably not immediately.

That’s good Eddie, gives us a wee bit of leeway. I know Graham won’t manage in same as me . I am not sure how many of club members actually read this forum but it would be good i we got some set of idea who would start coming into club in September

Church have informed me we have two weeks already paid for when we return.
I was planning to contact them at the start of August to see if we might return in September.
Should I continue as I planned ? Doubt if church will dump us without any warning.
