The Hartlip Wives

“I have nothing to declare but my genius.”

Ok, it sounds better coming from Oscar Wilde. No blog today because (i) I dropped my dreadnought while taking it outside to photograph, and (ii) I am lecturing on writing to the Hartlip Wives tonight on writing fiction.


  1. Ouch! I can sympathize, we've all had that horrible experience where time slows as your mini falls from the table & reaches terminal velocity before smashing apart on the floor.


    Hopefully the lecture will fare better.

  2. I once had a gust of wind send x64 individually based 15mm troopers awaiting their seal coat bouncing across the concrete driveway before my eyes. I feel your pain my man.

    Good luck tonight on your lecture!

  3. Dear John
    Sorry to hear about the Dreadnought the Orky one?
    re point (ii)
    Portrait of the artist as a Young Man? or Dorian Gray in reverse?
    Still could be worse could have been the Stepford wives you were lecturing blank looks and fixed smiles all round then.

  4. Dear Cheef & Mik
    Yeah, I guess we have all been there but it still makes me weep.
    The lecture went fine, thanks.

  5. Dear Shaun
    I hope to have the damage fixed and a pick up later today. Da meck seems confident although he did do a bit of toof sucking when he first examined it.
