Profile Information

Your introduction to consim gaming:
I am a relatively latecomer to this lobby. I started 'wargaming' in the late seventies with the Usborne Battle Books. I remembered re-fighting the Battle of Arsuf over and over again with my little sister. Later, I found SPI's 'Napoleon' in 1982 and Squad Leader in 1983-4. I played Avalon Hill's 'Alexander the Great' and a couple of others from 1985. Afterwards, I was lost in the RPG wilderness and collectible card hell for years. I eventually returned to wargaming in the mid-nineties. These days, I am just not very active.

Very little unfortunately.

Aircraft identification quiz - World War II

Here is another one, an aircraft identification quiz for the aircraft of the Second World War. This is for the military enthusiast. It is certainly not easy, neither is it particularly hard for the aviation enthusiast.

Aircraft identification quiz

I created this easy quiz just a short while ago. Please give it a try. It shouldn't be too difficult. I will create a much harder one later.

This one does have a few trick questions, deliberately inserted to confuse.

I used to write up military-based quizzes a decade or more ago. I found it rather fun.

Osprey Publishing is asking which Men at Arms volumes could benefit from re-visits

Osprey Publishing is asking for suggestions for their Men at Arms titles, asking what they should re-visit. Some of the titles were published ages ago and may benefit from updates, re-writes and expansion.

Regarding your comment upon my Berlin Central Station photo: Yes, bicycles and cyling are quite popular in Germany, especially in university cities where lots of students and young people live. The bikeways are great and cyclists enjoy some privileges such as the permission to enter one-way streets from the wrong direction. Some cities even offer "bicycle streets" where bikes always have the right of way. In addition, mountain and race biking are extremely popular sports. Last but not least, more and more people commute by bike / train since the gasoline prices reached new heights this year.
