I have been busy enough to not post for awhile. The big news was I attended the Williamsburg Guns of August show two weeks ago. The show continues to expand which is great news.
They had some excellent tables:
I manage to play a Wings of War game set in the Pacific. As I don't like playing with strangers ( remember it is all about the story! Strangers ruin the story because they are trying to win!) this was a big step for me. It was some Hellcats on CAP over some Merchantmen attack by Vals escorted by Zeros.
Even though I wanted to focus on a story I couldn't help myself and became competitive enough to splash one Zero.
I really enjoyed it and will attend the show in Feb. While it was hot on Saturday it was very hot outside as well. I will probably run a game this time; either Post Captain or my variant of Bag the Hun.
Otherwise I played two games. The first was "The escape of Catfish Hunter" Catfish had finally been captured and was going to be sent to Williamsburg in the morning for trial. Catfish's gang had decided to break him out. Why? Because he knew where the treasure was!
Rules were Combat Patrol for activation, Donnybrooke for combat and everything but morale. Force on Force for Morale. Scots D10/D10. Pirates D6 firering, D10 hand to hand and D10 for morale. Militia, D6/D6.
Got a Timelife book at a used bookstore "Passing the Torch". It is about Indochina right after WW II. Inspired me to take my Aussie's and WW II Americans and turn them into french for an Ambuscale mission from Grunt's Forward. ( Am working with Chris to format GF and get it out there!)
