Painted so far
As regular readers will know, I have slowly been working on some Jason and the Argonauts figures. I have loved the story of Jason from even before the time I first saw the Ray Harryhausen film at my uncle's house in the late sixties/early seventies, when he had a colour TV and we did not. This is a film I watch regularly and I have also the soundtrack CD for. I also like the Hallmark TV mini series version from 2000 and even have the soundtrack to that.
I have many books on the Argonauts and a lot of unpainted figures, monsters and, indeed the splendid Grand Manner Argo, pictured here with one of my Jason and the Argonauts mugs and my long neglected Greek Myths blog.
Now, another wargamer has suggested a Jason project and so I can bring some focus to this heretofore rather desultorily pursued project. A key part of this will be a good set of rules and what better than Crooked Dice's Seventh Voyage Harryhausenesque ones. Said wargamer asked to have a look at them, when I said I had them. "They are a bit buried," I replied but I set to looking for them today. Now nearly all my wargames rules are on a bookshelf in my study. Unfortunately, they are currently buried behind approximately 300 copies of Penthouse magazine which need sorting and a lot of boxes which need to go into the shed. Anyway, I started to move them today to get at the shelves behind without getting distracted by naked ladies with big hair from the eighties. I looked and I looked. I couldn't find the rules anywhere. I started to doubt if I had, indeed bought them at all. I looked on the shelves with my Jason books. Nothing there either. Puzzled. I searched this blog and discovered that I had, indeed, bought them at Salute 2013. So where are they? I need another search tomorrow.
