Wargames wise, 2012 wasn't all bad. I found 2 sets of rules that I really like in Maurice and Dux Britannarium. I bought figures for both and my first purchase of 2013 will be an order for the rest of my AWI British from Peter Pig. I also played more than a few fun games with lots of good people. Periods played and rulesets used were too varied to list here, but I enjoyed most of them, which was nice.
|Commie tanks on the hill with their infantry in the village|
|Tanks and APCs skirt a religious stronghold|
|Oops, burning professional tanks is never a good plan|
|The attack on the village, which went on and on and on|
High points were my first shot of the game (double 6), while after that my aim was off. Andy's was even worse, with one of his units rolling double 1 every turn, which hindered his shooting for the whole game. After the game finished Colin and Andy left and were replaced by Nathan, who brought along a new boardgame called Pandemic. A quick game, it does make you work as a team and try to save the world. We lost, twice, but were really close to winning the second time and the three of us enjoyed it, so that's a good thing.
I am now in the process of painting and roofing the Warbases buildings I got for Christmas from my wife. After that I have to paint some WW2 figures for a customer, then some 15mm Napoleonics (part of a massive load I have to paint) and then I may, finally, get to paint some of my AWI figures. That's the plan anyway.
Well, its time to go and eat some tea so I can feel sick again later. Last night was really bad, so bad that I ended up at the doctors again today. Ah well, **** happens. I hope you all have a good New Year and may the god of wargaming allow your dice to be favourable. Take care and keep rolling those 6's.
