How do you deal with buildings on the game's table? Do you use the same scale as your figures or have you considered using smaller scale buildings with your figures?

I've been away for a couple of weeks so today's video is more of an apology for not having a scripted subject to talk about...but I'm feeling very rested and ready to get stuck into my hobby again so taking time out from my usual schedule hasn't been all bad.
I'll probably talk more about the holiday in a later video but in the meantime here is a small taste of the excellent museums I had a chance to visit.
|Staffordshire Regiment Museum|
|Recreated trenches at the Staffordshire Regiment Museum|
|Model of the AZW battle of Ulundi using hundreds of flats|
|We watched a performance of Dracula with the abbey as its backdrop|
|The castle had a Wars of the Roses themed living history display taking place|
|This guy brought some equipment from the Armouries at Leeds|
|The Castle Museum at York|
|Victorian shopfronts included this toyshop|
|...and this Apothecary|
|The York Army Museum|
|A WWI Cavalryman charges between the exhibits|
|A reenactor describes the Battle of Bosworth|
|The Agincourt Diorama|
|The Agincourt diorama|
|A Wars of the Roses bowman|
|Inside Ripon Cathedral|
|The Jorvik Viking Centre in York|
|Jorvik Viking Centre|
As usual, I took hundreds of pictures and many still need to be correctly labelled which will keep me busy for a few days.

Do you play a period because you like a set of rules? or do you like a set of rules that fits the period you want to collect? And of it's the latter, how do you choose a ruleset to commit to? I'm often indecisive when faced with multiple options and I am currently struggling to find a set of rules for a new project.

The painting desk is the nerve centre of your army building operation and should be suitably organised to make the best of the time spent there. I'm a firm believer in keeping your workspace tidy, clean and well laid out so you can resume work the next day with the minimum of fuss.

It's been a busy month (for work and play!) so here is the latest Update from the Operations Room.
Apologies for the poor lighting. I did the video in the evening and the sun was directly behind me and streaming through the curtains. I only realised it afterwards, so something for me to bare in mind for the next update.
