Wargaming Tradecraft: Weekly Update

Weekly Update

Last Week at Wargaming Tradecraft


Not much going on here at the moment, for which I apologize. Another round of tearing the apartment apart commenced to combat mold... this whole flood stuff is getting old - TheWife and I would love to just move on, and yet it keeps jumping in our faces. I'm hoping to get things back to normal in life and here on the blog sometime soon.

It sounds like the guy handling things has a very level head and is a great person to be having discussions with GW.

Busy week it seems for a lot of people. Some great things are going on, so take a look down below...
