An Update

You might have noticed that I've done very little blogging of late.  The reason is simple, I am back on chemotherapy and between that and my pain meds, I am usually exhausted and seldom clear-headed.

I was able to 'referee' a 16th century battle using Clarence Harrison's "Victory Without Quarter" ECW rule set.  Murdock and Rob faced off and (as expected because he's played before and Rob was new to these rules) Murdock emerged victorious . . . although Rob did destroy several of Murdock's units.

Here are a few photos:

Murdock's right flank

Mid-battle after a number of units lost on each side.

I was also without a computer for a week or so. I had been thinking of getting a new one anyway when I somehow picked up some nasty malware and my old computer was essentially junk.

So rather than try to salvage it, I bought a new one and it took quite a while for the tech guys to save (and transfer) most of my old data files.

Anyway, I am now back . . . but at a much-reduced level.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and wish you the best.

Thank you, Ed. But I should note that I am not at all at death's door . . . this is to knock my cancer back a bit so that I can continue to have a reasonable quality of life.

Best health wishes, Jeff!
Nice game photos.

I have done very little gaming or painting or blogging most of this year myself. Just been very busy with work for the most part. What gaming I have gotten in has mostly been board games and card games (solo).

Stick with it Jeff,
My best friend was given months to live five years ago, although he has bad days, he is back playing drums semi professionally on his good days.I know it easy for people to say this, but I think we all hope you get through this trauma.
