WhAM-on

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Skirmish, Space-poc.

Most rules game either historical order or fictional chaos. I’m interested in what skirmishes will look like during the transition period from the former state to the latter. What does war look like when — while — every nation is falling apart? [See my earlier post HERE.] [See Also: cycles within patterns?] Yyeeaarrs ago I… Read more »

Bottle Battles

Posted by & filed under Bars!, BLATHER, Thanks.

This Sunday I’m thankful there are men in the world who don’t allow even the mortal danger of organized violence to come between them and a good piss-up. A few months ago, in the March 2020 issue of Miniature Wargames magazine, I learned about the Battle of Tuttlingen. I thought, “Cool, that’s a well written… Read more »

One morning in Haltwhistle I was poring over this map … … (which I pre-ordered before we left home, still have and still love) and came across this: So we worked it into our hike that day. Here’s the approach from the west: And here are two shots of it looking north: And here is… Read more »

More About the North

Posted by & filed under Bars!, BLATHER.

  My post yesterday reminded me of some highlights from the trip my wife and I took along Hadrian’s Wall in ’16. The Anchor Hotel in Haydon Bridge is a nice place.
