My chemotherapy starts this coming Wednesday. Fortunately they tell me that the nausea that used to plague chemo patients is pretty much a thing of the past thanks to very effective nausea medications.
Unfortunately because of the nature of chemotherapy I am likely to be extremely fatigued (and I already have to take numerous naps during the day). Also I will be very susceptible to infections . . . so I will have to avoid going out as much as possible. So for the next six months I will pretty much be a stay-at-home invalid . . . *sigh*.
On a happier note, I have now re-based (but not yet flocked) 192 cavalry for my Saxe-Bearstein and vile Stagonian armies.
Each of the above will now have four regiments of Horse, three regiments of Dragoons and a single regiment of Hussars. All units are twelve figures strong and mounted on six two-figure 47mm square stands. (The square 47mm stands allow the units to fit comfortable in my display cabinet.
I do need to paint up some more infantry. Unfortunately the Blood-Ax figures that I have for the rest of my army aren't available any more as far as I know. So I will be having to use some plastic WSS from Warlord Games that I picked up a while ago . . . but the thought of having to cut all of the parts from the sprues and piecing the figures together is a bit daunting to me the way I'm feeling since my cancer surgery.
Don't get me wrong. I DO feel much stronger than I did after the surgery . . . just nowhere close to how I felt before it. I have also regained some weight. I had lost 60 lbs, but have regained about 15. However I've been warned that I'm likely to lose more during the chemotherapy.
Hopefully I will be able to play some solo games (albeit over several sessions) during the next six-months . . . which is why I've been refurbishing my 18th century troops.
