Friday 28th June (unless something intervenes) will see my first game of "In Her Majesty's Name" against my buddy Andy. At the moment it looks like it will feature Her Majesty's Martian Constabulary against Andy's Chinese Tong (if he gets them painted in time!), but I might get something else finished before then - possibly the French Legations Entreprise des Opérations Spéciales (which Google translate tells me is "special operations company" in le frog) or possibly the German Empire's team, we will see. If it is a new company, I'll be sure to post on it here (and the LAF as well)
Andy also informed me that while he has not been wargaming (and that's only about 5 years he claims, not the 12+ that I asserted in my post) he has been busy modelling, as you can see with this British Grenadier he made:
More photos of his rather superb efforts are through this link
Finally for this post, I'm listing the myriad projects that are currently within my butterfly like wargaming attention span as an FYI for you all in no particular order ...
- 28mm VSF (Ironclad and IHMN)
- 1/1200th Victorian Science Fiction (Brigade Models; not fixed on rules yet)
- 15mm Very British Civil War (Peter Pig figures and "A World Aflame" Osprey rules)
- 40mm Greek Mythological Skirmish (various figs; no rules yet)
- 28mm Dark Ages (Gripping Beast plastics and SAGA)
- 6mm Marlborough (Baccus and assorted rules to try)
- 6mm ACW (Baccus and Cheer, Boys, Cheer!)
In other news:
- Just read the Osprey New Vanguard series books on 'British Airships 1905-30' and 'Zeppelins: German Airships 19??-40'; very informative and inspirational
- Has anyone been in contact with Vampifan? last I heard he'd had surgery and was recovering .. I emailed him, but have not had a reply ...
