This has been a good year. Earlier I scored from MMP a ziploc copy of 'Armies of Oblivion', and now a ziploc copy of SASL2 from their Black Friday sale.
'Leros' and 'Talavera' are also…Continue
Where is the marketplace? I'd swear there was one here before. There is a copy of Gung Ho (autographed by Bob McNamara if you like) on Ebay, with a few more coming. What's the proper forum for such things?…Continue
Tonight, I've read a lot of tributes to Nelson Mandela upon his passing. Respect for him appears to cross ideological lines, with liberals, conservatives and libertarians alike paying their respects.
There are some in the minority though, pointing out that he was a Communist terrorist, condemning him and those who laud him. I have to strongly disagree with what I see as some prose that can only be described as mean-spirited and short-sighted. True, he did have allies who were…
I have a blog which I have started using for wargaming (more for fun than seriousness) and I did a game report for The Road to Cheren.
I made this for the BGG solitaire p&p competition, and it won best wargame (and 2nd overall).
It's a light wargame, using regions. The player controls the Irish forces fighting the British, then, after the treaty with Britain, plays the role of Michael Collins' Free State forces against the anti-treaty Republicans.
Here's the map:…Continue

Someone had posted on 28th Oct that Thomas had passed away.
Is this true?
I have not seen him on here for a long time. It will be sad if he has gone.

Our session last night began with a tense Initiative dice roll between the French left wing commander and the English commander. Unfortunately for the French, the English won the roll and proceeded to attempt to remove the infestation of French Guardsmen from their lines. Unfortunately for the English, their charging English cavalry (5 SPs) ran into the toughest French Guardsmen around, apparently, who, even though they only had 3 SPs stayed in line to receive the charge and managed to…Continue

In Harry Pearson's excellent memoir of his wargaming life (“Achtung Schweinehund!”) he quotes a friend who's an alcoholic commenting about always thinking there’s one guy worse than you until you become “that guy.” And every alcoholic has a guy who fits that role until they realize they have become that guy. Well, this last week I had a “that guy” moment when my 30-pound OGRE deluxe game showed up on the doorstep. (See the photos section for a size comparison with…Continue
I've recently taken a stab a giant rule set overhaul. I decided to take some time away which allowed me to pick up the rules and begin with a fresh perspective. Here is a sample page from the very first set...
I still can't believe I sent this out and that several wargamers had the heart to actually read it and provide feedback! You know…Continue

I have a copy of the first edition of this game, made by OSG, which I bought from someone on ebay and I plan to play it soon.
It has the original OSG rule book, but it also has an original AH rule book from the second edition.
The help I need is whether or not there is any difference between 1st and 2nd edition rules. The second edition would be more preferable to read as it is indexed which helps greatly.
After a few brief looks at the two rule books, I…Continue
I took some time and made a set of maps for winter and what I thought it would look like in Finland. Simple map graphics that would force the player to simply use the terrain given and maneuver not overload the board with too many terrain options.
Tried to give my versions of the original 2-4 boards for Winter and then added a board with lakes to represent the pock-marked land.
Here are some low-res versions of my maps, I guess I can't upload larger than 7mb, and each of these…Continue
