Discovering the wars of the roses

For saying i'm into the wars of the roses lately, i don't know much about what actually happened. I know the names of some battles and the kings, but other than that i'm blank, so i've got reading.
At the moment i'm reading a book about Edward IV, a not too long book my dad got back in england. He's got a whole collection of them, from Alfred the Great all the way through the middle ages and into the 20th century. It's proving to be very interesting and enlightening, and complicated :p I also have another book about the wars that i bought in england, as well as a couple of others about the battles in more detail.

I have also been painting, but have got no finished figures yet, just some basing done and figures part finished. I slightly lost motivation for a bit and this morning i wasn't too happy with a couple of things i'd done, not to mention i painted a livery wrong and had to start again >=(  But the black cloud is floating away and i should finish them tomorrow, then i'll have cousins around so i'll be on halt for
a week.

Maybe i could convince them to play a game?

The saga of Drikilvarr will also continue, so don't go far!
Sorry for the lack of interesting posts at late, things just seem to get in the way of blogging.
