Diary Today, Fantasy Tomorrow

 [It's 01.09 hrs GMT]

Decided to split this week's posting into two sections (so an extra missive tomorrow).

Sunday 1st January 2017

Managed to undercoat most of the Orcs with a watered-down "Stone Green". 

The 2 exception are the 'armless' pair whose limbs don't fit very well at all.  They will need some work with knife and drill, undercoating, then assembly.

Monday 2nd January 2017 - WDW

"Honours of War" - first try-out for these 7YW rules - Brits v French & Austrians - seemed OK but, naturally, we spent a lot of time pondering the rules.  Plan to play again next week (so no DBM yet again).
"Honshu" - card game (x2) with John Smith winning both times
"Baroque Impetus" - ECW squabble between Cornish Royalists and some nameless Parliamentarians.
"Command & Colours Ancients" - Greeks v Persians (boardgame)
"DBA v3.0" (x2) - medievals

Wednesday 4th January 2017 - new magazine out

According to the 'Wargaming Miscellany' blog entry "Wargamer's Notes Quarterly" issue 1 has just come out.

I tried the following email link:

The authors quickly replied with a pdf attachment.

In this issue...
Wargaming the Ninth Cape Frontier War
Call It Macaroni!
Converting Plastic 20mm WW2 German Paratroopers, Part 1
Boer War Blockhouses
Simplicity and Brevity in Game Design – Part 1
About the Editors
The Costs of War: Wargaming on a Budget
Hexagonal Terrain: A How To
Setting the Scene for Russo-Japanese Naval Armageddon

Very much 'old school' and no worse for that!  Will get around to a proper review sometime!  In the meantime I wish them luck.  Do give it a try!

From another blog:  "Wargames Soldiers & Strategies issue No.88 is out" - no more details!
