Paragraph from Toronto

Went to Fort York yesterday - very impressed with the staff and those who did the music and musket drills. The blockhouses and buildings date from 1813 and have some great exhibits. I'm posting this from my phone and cant access the pics.
Current haul consists of 3 of Donald Graves books on the war of   1812 which probs takes us over our baggage allowance ­čśä

To The Strongest - Middle Imperial Romans

With only a few days left before we go on holiday, I was looking around for something to finish quickly so I decided to finish the bases of my Romans. Whilst I was on I made some labels for the units which can either be attached to the back or put underneath and some pilum and lance tokens. I found a couple of pictures of pila and lances on the internet and used Micosoft Paint and LibreOffice Draw to reduce them to 1 1/4" x 1/2". Thes were then printed out and stuck onto some mdf bases of the same size - I can't remember what I bought the bases for so they've found a use after all.
