Thanks for the welcome message Eric.

Well, I did all I could to try Napoleonics, ACW games, etc I heeded advices that would point me to obscure conflicts and other historical eras but the impelling fascination for the Eastern theater always brought me back to the Ostfront.

I actually spend more time these days dabbling into graphics and maps...

Thanks Eric.  I love ASL but haven't played it in so long that I'd be hard-pressed to conduct a mistake-free Prep Fire Phase!

Hi Eric,

 Very neighborly of you (at least neighborly in cyberspace terms ;-) ). BTW, I'm a Virginian myself (Lexington) by birth, so happy to see someone posting from Norfolk!

Thank for welcoming me Eric.

Really on LnL by these days.

BoH, Swift & Bold and HotB are on the schedule for some games to come.

Perhaps a bit of FHV and DoH to add some more peper.

As for GBoH, I lack free time by now and I postponed it to march or ... may.

If you are ready to play with one of the late GBoH greenies somewhere in between just let me know...

Indeed, the 1st Marines were the focal point of "The Pacific" . Which you will see snippets of (if I can sort out my vid editing software) in my new series of videos coming up CC:Pacific. I hope to do the scenarios out of it using a similar format to my Ancients AARs.
As for Galway... a great little port. I cant get you vintage but I am able to obtain it here in Texas. Let me know if you ever need, desire or want a bottle. Least I can do for a man who server as long as you.
I've lost a lot if not all of my Aussie trappings over time. Nor have I been home for nearly 8 years. My friends back there all call me a "rotten Seppo"
Best Regards

I own almost the entire collection of OCS as well as TCS titles.  That said, I am a newbie in both systems.  I have only played Tunisia to date, although our group is likely to play DAK for our next monster game after TDC.  I really love the OCS system and find it beautifully constructed and relatively easily implemented.  And if offers a ton of subtlety in it's play.  Looking forward to more OCS.  ONe of our group is also big on East Front Series like yourself.  But I am so sold on OCS and have all of the tiels save one or two small games, and love the system too much to be drawn into trying to collect all of those OOP GMT titles.


In actuality, my greatest love is anything Civil War.  VG's The Civil War is my favorite game.  And although I enjoy the Brigade Series games, I am really a huge fan of the RSS games.  Own and hope to one day play both A Fearful Slaughter as well as This Terrible Sound.  Own and played South Mountain.  A great little game.


And finally, although I own a ton of the modules, I haven't had the chance to ever do anything but solitaire ASL.  But I am an old SL fanatic and really want to get into ASL.  Opponents very hard to find, solitaire play is weak and special convention play difficult to arrange.  But I love the system and would enjoy getting into it.


I enjoyed your pics and music.

Hi Eric,


Thanks for the welcome and comments.


You have some great choices as well in gaming.  We have very similar tastes it would appear.  Our group here in Milwaukee is presently completing just the first day of the Campaign 1 (Historical) scenario of Devil's Cauldron.  I've played three other scenarios perviously.  We are just getting into it and, with the exception of some bonhead missed rules we've had to correct for, are having a great time.  Can't wait for Where Eagles Dare and No Question of Surrender to show up on my doorstep.

Hi Eric, thanks for the nice comments. I like you intro music. I'm an Aussie. Gallipoli remains a part of my life as a child with our moment of silence every Nov 11, at 11am every year in school.

That is quiet a collection of games.

What did you do in the military?

Thanks for your comments on my own 'wall', Eric - I'm going through rough times, but plan on doing maps like those you mentioned for a long time to come! Now I just need to get through the learning curve on Illustrator/Photoshop.

Hi Eric, Happy New Year and thank you very much for your thoughtful comments regarding Labyrinth.  All the best in 2011!

Well Thanks Eric! I looked up that game you mentioned, Struggle for the Galactic Empire. Looks very interesting, but as you mentioned there is not much feedback available on it. Maybe I'll try my luck with it at some point.

Thanks for the welcome. Yeah, I always get a second look from the military guys I work with  - would've made a great tanker. Of course, I always wanted to fly the A-10...I guess that's the "sky tank", no?

Funny you should scoff at designing an RSS/LOB game -- I'm currently playing around heavilyt with adopting the system to the Franco-Prussian War, which has always been under-served in the wargaming world IMO, especially at the Grand Tactical scale. It is quite a challenge!

Hi Eric,

Nice to meet you. Board Wargame magazine has been published for one year. The latest one is issue #4. I emphasized the wargame design on Chinese or Taiwanese related themes. The purpose is to develop the board wargame concept to people in China and Taiwan and to open the hidden future market here. Actually, I came here for learning more about board wargames and hope to cultivate more Chinese wargame designers in the future. And of course I will upload more playtesting pictures to share gronards in Consim world. I will be appreciated for any comment and suggestion for Board Wargame magazine.


Best regards,

Greetings Eric:


Thanks for joing my small list of friends, and also, thanks for the tip on expediting my search for other memebers of the community; needless-to-say, your suggestion makes tracking down specific members much, much easier!


Best Regards, Joe

Thanks for the tribute, to my War Room.  I wrote a column about war rooms in general and my war room in the most recent AHIKS Kommandeur newsletter.  I've been to the Imperial War Rooms in London, the SAC Underground at Offutt AFB, as well as the Combined Air Operations Center at Davis Monthan AFB.  My nephew got to sit in the same spot that Stalin sat in at the underground bunker in Stalingrad.  I got involved in war games when I was in Middle School (in the early 70s - I'm about the same age as you).  I even played wargames while going to college (at VMI).  I played war games until I got married - and then they took a back seat - I sold all my games.  Well, roll the tape forward to six years, ago.  I got diagnosed with Prostate Cancer (at age 46).  Having some time to kill while recovering from surgery, I got back into wargaming.  I joined the Avalon Hill International Kriegspiel Society (AHIKS) - - which I am now the Vice President of - a great group of folks to play wargames with (by mail, email, etc.).

Dear Eric:  I will keep you guys posted.  My next purchase will be some hard copies of rules books for World in Flames and Days of Decision.  I hate downloading rules.  My printer is not really designed for heavy duty printing.  I like to have extra copies for the guys.  I know they can also print their own copies.  But I like to have some copies ready for newbies.  I have also pledged GMT's "Spanish Civil War", which should be shipping soon.

Dear Eric:  thought I left you a message a couple days ago.  But I did not see it post.  Anyway, thanks for the welcome.  I see you are from Norfolk, VA.  I have to get a picture of me uploaded soon.  I have just lost 50lbs on a special diet.  I want to have some "slim" pictures of me taken of me.  Than I will show myself.  I just bought "To the Green Fields Beyond" by Excalibre Games, I think it is an old SPI  reprint.  There is a Wargame store out here in the Wheaton area that is going out of business.  They offer 40-50% off on their remaining stock of games.  So I have been picking away at the deals. Strange enough a new store just has opened up not to far from me.  Dan G.

Thanks for the welcome Eric! Hope to read again from you soon around CSW ^^

Greetings Eric:


Thanks for your warm welcome; I had been planning to join for some time but just never got around to it before.  So far as your very kind comments regarding my blog are concerned, I would be worse than churlish if I didn't thank you for recommending my sometimes eccentric scribblings.


Thanks Again and Best Regards, Joe
