November 2016

I have crossed the 8 year point since I started my adult wargaming. Time flies when you are having fun. I spent a few days at my parents house looking around in the basement (again) for my old Airfix figures. No luck. I will give it one more go when we clean out the crawl space. 

During a great vacation in the Turks and Caicos, I read the 10 wargames magazines I stockpiled over the summer, and I read the Hammer's Slammers collection of sci-fi short stories. 


I sent my Christmas list to my wife. It contains the usual round of wargames books and, for the first time, some figures (6 packs of Pulp Figures).


Bought a few things from my list...paints, primer, bases, TFL Summer 16 special, the new Pulp Alley campaign and cards. I will get the Too Fat Lardies Winter PDF special in December.


Working on my Katzenstein expansion while planning to start either 6mm sci fi or 28mm zombies. Sci fi has the lead...I am trying to hold out to the new year.

A few pictures of a game with a group at On Military Matters...a great shot for wargames books and military history:
