About Me
I'm a business computer programmer working here in the Saint Louis area. My wife is the Saint Louis area native, I'm an import. I grew up as a Army Brat, lived all over, so I could care less where we settled.

My wife and I met during ROTC classes in 83. We both served out our Commissioned career in the Army National Guard (me exclusively) and the Army Reserves (my wife split NG and Reserves about 1/2 and 1/2). My wife retired as a Major in 2004 and I retired as a Major in 2007. The years 2003 thur mid 2006 were very busy ones. Suzanne was called up and served at Ft Riley KS from Jan 2003 thru March 2003. I was called to AD in April 2005 and served in Iraq from Jun 05 until late May 06.

Using the WP army level unit area as a guide the… Continue

Flashpoint:Central Front--Battle for Nurnburg and Munchen Turn Three Complete

OK, so it's been a long, long time for an update. Sorry about that. Believe it our not the game is still up, no attacks by my cat, and solo play continues.

I've got an image file of the battle area. It's a cut and paste from the ADC2 game set, that I've added a front line trace and Army locations for the WP and Division locations for NATO.

Starting in VII (US) Corp area.

The EG 1A has had some good results… Continue

Flashpoint:Central Front--Battle for Nurnburg and Munchen Turn One Complete


VII Corps has formed a solid line. A Slight problem in the Northwest where the EG's decided to enter the map up near the middle of the norht/west side of the map VIC (3923-3931) in the 3 ID's sector. 3 ID will have to adjust their line and possibly conduct some set piece combats in order to tidy up the area.

In 2 ACR's AO there has not been much contact, WP is still on the approach and forming up. 2 ACR is in good shape.…

ConsimWorld Forum / Boardgaming / Individual Game or Series Discussion / Era: Contemporary / Potential Conflicts / Flashpoint: Central Front

Basically the rules system is from the Flashpoint:Golan game. Mark Herman originally designed this system for a WP-NATO conflict. With the fall of the WP and the… Continue
