Yes, after a near-18-month hiatus I have actually played in a real live competition and almost-immediately written up 5 all-new battle reports from the recent 3T's competition held in York !

This means that the commentary alongside the photos might actually bear at least a passing resemblance to what actually went on on the tabletop during the games – and I may even remember some of the results as well.

The reports also feature many references to roadside retail establishments on the Great North Road, as well as the usual animations, captions and speech bubble nonsense.

The matches in question feature a lockdown-painted Thracian Army taking on all comers, in the form of Carthage, Palmyra, Sassanid Persia, Triumverate Rome and finally the Seleucids.

The road to the competition also saw us visit the Newark Air Museum, and there's a separate gallery of photos from that trip now online too.

Finally – of course – there are TWO Podcasts, one featuring the Madaxeman Podcast team trying to predict the winners from the event (before it happened) in a Euro 2020/21 style, and then a second , subsequent Podcast in which the Thracian list and four others are all discussed and evaluated. The List Pod is available on both Podbean and YouTube.

The fish and chips have secured their flanks with silverware, and are getting ready to push forward against two cups of tea.

Another handful of minutes I will never get back. Probably in the top 2 of serial ADLG reports writers. There was one great pic of a flying thing at the start.

Under a layer or three of paint, the eyebrowless ones look to be link but presumably from their old TTG origins.

Roadside venues are wildly unpredictable. I'm a sucker for checking them out while on road trips. Your fish and chips look pretty good. I'm lucky to have experienced merely blah food and never needed an emergency stop due to personal plumbing issues! On to the blog . . .

Where did you get your special dice from? Essential for games where throwing a 'one' is nearly always bad. I know someone whose whole game strategy is based round not throwing a one.

I think it's referenced in a match report somewhere – I've only had them a few years so if you go back to when they first appear there may be a link !

Actually the one with the dog is better (farther down the page).

I just ordered 2 Bullocks dice from "the Dice Shop" but they were almost out of them. link
