One of the great undiscovered resources in our hobby is a great club zine from Utah. Now in its 34th issue, Warning Order is worth the time to download and read. Oh, did I mention that it's absolutely free.

Check it out. http://www.wfhgs.com/wrngorder.html

Sentinels of the Multiverse is currently in the HFC test lab and here's a little AAR for you to enjoy while waiting for our review :)

Combat Commander: Stalingrad

Another couple of scenarios played of this totally addictive and engrossing game with my Dad.

We decided to stick with the Stalingrad theatre.

Both scenarios proved very close run games.

First up was (I can never remember the scenario titles) a game set to the rear of the Barrikady Factory with my Ivans having to defend a key house (Dom 31) whilst awaiting a relief force. Couple of unique units in this one with an SMG and LMG Garrison counters set up with a Sgt in this…

I've Been Diced! episode 42: Volko Ruhnke

Volko Ruhnke is our guest, and boy, do we have a lot to talk about. From Wilderness War to Labyrinth, from Andean Abyss to the next games in the counterinsurgency series, we've got it all. How do you portray guerrilla warfare and terrorism in wargames? Why haven't there been more games about the most frequent conflicts of the last century, the internal ones? And what's a Tupemaro, anyway?

The Battle of Sharpsburg

I am considering doing "The Battle of Sharpsburg" publish by Wayne Wesenberg in 1975 via DTP as a free computer game.  Questions;


Does anyone know how to contact Mr. Wesenberg?

Operation Cannibal

I got this game recently, as I am interested in this area of conflict from WW2. Has anyone ever played it and if so what was your opinion of it?

It did not score very highly on BGG, and to be honest, this was another draw for me. I like to play games which have been deemed poor or mediocre and judge for myself if the rating was justified or not. It may have…

Combat Commander 2 more scenarios played and enjoyed

Another two scenarios played with my Dad of this most enjoyable collection of bits of carboard and paper !

First scenario was from the Mediterranean Playbook covering action between Canadians and Fallschirmjager at Ortona Italy in 1943.

Basically a fight in a built-up area (map mainly multi-hex buildings) with the Cannucks having to advance against the formidable Green Devils.

My Cannucks made decent progress turning the Devils left wing but lost a couple of key Melees…
