Yet Another Year End Special

Well, it’s that time of year again when I have my year-end special blog post which is me explaining and promising that really I will do better in the coming year. Well I’m not gonna do that I will however tell you that I wish to increase my media footprint and that I will try my best to do so.

2016 was a year of ups and downs. As far as gaming goes it was pretty good year. It was mostly ups. I got into a new gaming era. I now own Team Yankee from Battlefront Games and its supplement Leopard 2 also from Battlefront Games. Team Yankee is styled as the cold war goes hot in the 1980s. Well, in real life it almost did a couple of times in fact. So not only did I buy the rulebooks I also bought the 15 mm models to go with it I now have a West German kampfgruppe and and am building a Soviet tank force.

I’ve also been busy getting back into SAGA. I will be discussing that in a future blog post. Lion Rampant also rumbles along quite well thank you as well as a new version of an old game Sharp Practice. I have Sharp Practice 2 and believe me it is a much improved version and I’m glad I got it.

Well that’s about it for the year-end closeout except of course for my lame ass promises of well I’m gonna post more maybe I will. Until then happy holidays . May 2017 bring you lots of good gaming!

Farewell to 2014 and a Look Ahead!

Well, 2014 is pretty much in the rearview mirror and 2015 looms ahead. All in all,2014 has been a good year for gaming for me. Here are some of the highlights along with some plans for 2015.

SAGA:

SAGA marches on! I ran my first SAGA Tournament in September at HMGS-South’s Hurricon convention.

It was a great weekend. I was pleasantly surprised at all the interest that was shown in the game.

There will be two tournaments held this coming April at HMGS-South’s Recon convention. I also got Crescent and Cross which is the next rules book in the SAGA line. It covers the Crusades. I’m slowly building up a warband of Knight’s Templars. Fireforge makes some terrific plastic figures.

BRINK of BATTLE:

Haven’t really done much with BoB of late. Since my SAGA figures are single mounted, I will stat them up for BoB and have a good old fashioned game of “Pillage the Village”. I still have the stats for my German-American War: 1904 scenario.

Lots of new stuff coming up in 2015.

Happy New Year everyone!

Back Again!

Well, it has indeed been a while about 4 months or so. I’ve been spending a lot of time on YouTube posting videos about RPG’s. So now I’m back here and will talking about wargames. SAGA is a lot of fun and I’ve now got an Anglo-Saxon Warband. I’ll post more tomorrow.
