After many months of preparations, anticipation and excitement, tonight I’m finally getting on a plane to Scotland. This is going to be a three week gaming and drinking trip. Two weeks in good ole Scotch Country under the umbrella of Teras Cassidy from GeekNation Tours followed by four days in gay Paris and two days in the London fog.
The gaming leg of the trip, the backbone of this adventure prompted me to put together an army I’ve been lusting after for a long time; a full jetbike Eldar army. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you might not be familiar with my near obsession with painting and playing (mostly painting though) Warhammer 40K. As I tend to do, I finished painting my models for this trip only a day or two ago, but it’s a gorgeous and fun army that I’m going to enjoy for years to come.
This is the first time I’ll be going on such a grand voyage since I’ve started writing and blogging and doing the comic thing and contrary to my last trip to Europe, I now have the ability to, hopefully, keep a running blog of the trip.
I’ll be away from many friends for a long time and this should be an interesting way of keeping in touch after a fashion.
So check in often. I should be updating this every evening (UK time, so in the afternoon to my East Coast friends) with details of my travels, photos and impressions. I can’t take you all on the trip, but I can bring part of the trip to you.
