4 of us are playing off in a game of Stargrave by Joseph McCullough. It’s going badly for me as I’ve lost my Captain and I’m under attack from both flanks However, death is not certain in Stargrave. We’ll see what is what in the post game phase.
What can I say? I got out of the habit of blogging. I’ll try and recapture the magic. I’ve been learning to shoot a catapult. It’s harder than it looks. I’m about 20% accurate at the moment. Sometimes I miss so badly I lose the ball bearing! Still practice makes perfect.
I played 3rd edition Kings of War by Mantic Games last night. This is a table top war game for two players. I haven’t played KoW for about three years and I was keen to learn the new edition. To cut a long story short I made several rookie errors that allowed Ed, my opponent,Continue reading “Kings of War – a game.”
This is why you must always keep soldiers busy. Their propensity for mischief is boundless. Whilst in Italy in 1943, as the Axis coalition collapsed, the REME stole Mussolini’s boots! They pulled them off of Mussolini’s statue and they are on display at the REME museum in Lynham UK.
The kids and I spent an enjoyable hour at the REME Museum out Chippenham way. Basically the REME love putting winches and hoists on things. I could have spent longer and will go back without the kids. If you listen to and read all the displays etc, it’s a couple of hours. Also a caféContinue reading “Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Museum.”

The idea was to shoot the big silver fuel tank and score 2 permanent damage hits. The fuel tank wasContinue reading “What a Tanker again!”
We went on a family trip to Bovington, UK today to visit the Tank Museum. They have quite a lot of “tank chats” on YouTube if you are interested.
I played the second game in my Stargrave campaign against top gaming chum Steve. The first game saw me emerge victorious. Tonight was different. We played the Salvage Crew scenario. The first turn saw Steve’s gunner knock off 20% of my crew in turn 1. Whilst not the end of the world it did limitContinue reading “Stargrave Campaign.”
I’m painting Darth Vader and a few chaps from the SWIA box. I’ve had these for a few years but it’s sat on a shelf until my boy dragged it out. I’m using the figures for a Stargrave crew. Some “destroyed” markers for various tank games plus a spaceship/shuttle for Stargrave tomorrow.
I’ve taken on too many projects! I’ve got What a Tanker! WW3 Team Yankee, O Group, Kings of War, Stargrave and Star Wars Imperial Assault on the go. Not to mention gardening and garage projects. Plus it’s half term and I’ve promised the kids a few days out and about. I think I need toContinue reading “Slightly overwhelmed.”
