Orlygg Rides Again...

I couldn't think where else to pop this single page of advice, so here is as good as any.
Hello again all...

The Realm of 80s Chaos has been quiet of late. A lethal combination of Christmas, a new job and a poorly daughter have had a catastrophic effect on my hobby time. As some of you will be aware, my daughter has not been well in recent weeks and even ended up being admitted to hospital. She has been up and down for a while but my wife and I are now quite confident that she has turned a corner and is getting better. So to celebrate we are all going to Legoland during the holidays to enjoy some family time. 

Of course, like many of my other Oldhammerer brothers, I am a teacher and the Christmas holidays have begun. This means quite a lot of potential hobby time and I am using my new found freedom to get going again with the blog, not to mention completing the many painting and modelling projects that I have left strewn across the paint station. I also hope to get a game in with my friend Stuart, who many of you would have met at last year's Oldhammer Event at the Foundry, on my new gaming board. I am currently developing a fiendish scenario for him to face! 

I have a pile of trades to complete too, so if you haven't received anything owed from me just let me know in the comment section and I will sort you out. 

Before I sign off and start getting the kids up, I would just like to say how pleased I am to see the Oldhammer Community grow so impressively over the weeks I have been away. The Facebook Groups (The Community Page and the Trading Group) have expanded enormously and I need to thank Chico 'Sexy Boy' Danks, Paul 'Warlord' Mitchell and Steve 'Bridgend' Casey for all of their hard work in guiding the Facebook Scene forwards. I have heard some worrying news from multiple sources recently that the Oldhammer Forum is on its last legs. I hope that this is not the case. So if you are not yet a member or haven't posted in a while, please get involved. Additionally, there is the ever growing Google+ Community spearheaded by Paul Mitchell. 

It has never been easier to connect with your Oldhammer colleagues!
