Mornin' all, Winner Dave at your service.
Driving to work has given me more time for reflection, "Damn, I'm hot", "Adam's awful" and "I wish I'd had breakfast" are among some of my favourites. I also end up thinking about painting...a lot!
Coupled to this I rarely manage to listen to the interviews Ben manages to do before we record, so I end up listening to them at the same time as you guys. So, I sat down to do some painting (Soviet Infantry) and after listening to "News from the Front" I remembered there were a couple of interviews I needed to listen to. As I was listening, diligently applying Black Grey to the boots of my infantry, I heard Evan say something along the lines of "I hate having to do the same thing over," and that struck a chord with me. Now I don't know about you, but I got the feeling Evan may have experienced that scenario in a recent time frame to the interview and he needed to get that off his chest.

Like Evan, I hate having to do the same thing a second time and currently it seems this can be extended to I hate having to paint another couple of armies so I can play early war and mid war again. I wouldn't mind if I already had armies for those periods and I was simply extending them or painting new armies as a slow burn project, but because I'd made them a necessity, it just felt like work.
I'd gotten myself into this situation because I'd sold my armies, firstly my mid-war tankovy, then the Japanese and also the Fallschirmjäger, which can be either mid or late. Well, I was regretting it and on my long drives to work I was calling myself all manner of names under sun as I'd figuratively dug my own booby trap and stepped on it.

So there you go, if you were aware that i'd bought back my armies, you now know my reasons...expect to see the old fellas in AARs and being talked about on podcasts soon...cos there ain't no way I'm selling them again...it just isn't worth it.
Sorry, this wasn't a very useful post, I guess I just needed to get that off my chest
Take it easy folks
