Why do I put myself through this each year? Following the phone call I have just ended my wife has told me that I am not allowed to organise another Broadside. I think she found the fifteen minuets of dangerously hysterical laughter followed by another ten of sobbing too much to handle.

I now know why the ad did not go into the Miniature Wargames issue this month! After not receiving the call I was promised by young Alex, she who organises the advertising, I decided to chase her and see what was going on. Her phone was answered by another who was a little reserved once I explained the situation and passed me onto a higher manager. I explained to this third party all that had gone on (or hadn't) and she promised to get back to me too. I decided to call Henry Hyde himself, a passing acquaintance who loves Blood Bilge and Iron Balls BTW, and raise the issue with him.

It seems that lovely Alex did not raise the invoice for the ad despite her emails to me and so the ad was never passed along. Alex has also left her job and started another elsewhere so is unavailable for comment or summary execution. I know. This is the point at which the worrying laughter started.....I can still hear it you know, just there, on the edge of my senses...can you hear that?

Henry is now dealing with this personally and I have again sent him details and ads. I am sure things can be helped along via the web etc. In fact, Henry has just posted the ad onto the Wargames Illustrated facebook page. This will be a great help and go some way to filling the gap. Many thanks Henry! :) I knew I could rely on you! :)

Following this I have just confirmed that the ad in Wargames Illustrated is alive and well and in the shops today. Isn't that nice....I can still hear that laughing you know....its a sort of orange colour.....anyway. All I need to do now is fill one final stand and we are done-skie! Other than all of the other bits and bobs and stuff that still needs to be done of course.
