I'm Not Dead Yet


According to blogger, I have done diddly squat since July 19th (2 1/2 months ago).  This is not strictly accurate, although family members might challenge my position...

Anyway when we last left the blog story, I had lost the Waterloo campaign shortly afterwords lost my supper.  Having put up a flurry of "Blucher -100 Days" related posts I was pretty much blogged out and never really got back on the horse.

However, I have been active with gaming related activities such as:

  • Painting more Italian wars related Perry 28mm figures, mostly plastics with some metals thrown in.
  • Dusted off my collection of Armada era galleons and tried them out with Galleons and Galleys.
  • Read a bunch of books on 15-16th century voyages of discovery.  Most appropriately, my biography of Columbus got lost at one point but reappeared on the wrong continent (OK sofa).
  • Played several board games and actually won some of them.
  • Played a Blucher era game hosted by Curt using his 3mm (yikes!) figures for the 1809 Danube campaign.
  • And likely other stuff, but I am having an academic memory fade....
More on these topics to follow...

      An EKG would require a heart!
      Cheers, PD

  3. The eternal stuggle of the 21st century wargamer - too busy doing things and enjoying himself to blog about it.

    1. True but it beats the alternative - not enjoying life at all and blogging about it!

  4. I'm looking to reading about the galleons in action. Will there be pictures?

    1. There will be photos and hopefully an AAR in the future, when we play another game. I have your old fleets to refit and add to mine.

  5. Well, then, who, exactly, did we bury at sea?

    I foresee an awkward moment or two at some future date.
