Crikey! I have been here over 3 weeks and have been enjoying it so much that I am very light on completed work. I have been wrestling with maps for FYOW and have been rather side-tracked with various design types. Having had something of an epipheny recently, I am at last moving forward but regret that I have not done the pdf about changes FYOB old vs new. The next 10 days are packed with itinery so I think it will have to wait until the flight back to the UK.
In the meantime, I have found the most wondeful model shop in Hamilton NZ - its not the sort of town thats on the tourist trail but if you are over here, do get into the heart of the city and find it - Games Centre I think it was called - well worth a visit for no other reason that one of the owners is a young lady with a passion for wargaming/sci-fi fantasy who really knows her stuff!!
Prices out here are really high - in Christchurch today where a model shop selling wargame and railway bits is charging about 1.5x the UK rates. I guess everyone here shops online but the wifi is pretty dismal and slow so the shops should really be pushing hard.
