Re: Op Hercules - Malta '42

Great link Bilk. Lovely tabletop and game report. I like your Dutch conversions (Romanian helmeted heads onto to French bodies!) and the Dutch Constabulary!! What did you use for those guys! They look very conspicuous in Blue uniforms and White helmets! (Bit like my British bobbies for 1938 Very Bri...

Its like Victor comic gone photographic and 'historic' in its storyline!! Great fun.
And again another OOB we can all duplicate and play for ourselves with our favourite rules and scale!
Well done

Re: Secure the Flanks

Another stylish game report: great tabletop terrain - love the cluttered look - and I like the way you lay out your forces in words and photos, all gives us something to try at home.

Thanks for posting

Re: A Strange Campaign now out

Grant101 !! (sounds very Ian Fleming like 007... but I digress) Sorry to hear about the computer burn out. You must learn to limit your collection of heavy metal music and S&M videos..... you did say 'burn' out?? I thought now your mate, (Max wasn't it?) has gone, you would have less F1 or S&...

Great conversions.
Sounds like you have had your hands full, making life easier for your wife and her mobility needs. Hope this works out for you both.
Look forward to seeing the painted versions at a later date.

Re: the fighting in Sudwestafrika pre WW1 and its results

sadly warfare can bring out the worst in us all (eg Brits giving concentration camps in Boer War, clandestine hit squads in Palestine, and poison gas aerial attacks in Iraq in 1920s to the world), and the best in us, eg in terms of courage and ingenuity and comradeship, etc..

Bilk,
I like your desert vehicles with red-brown splashes, and the dry brush on your covered wagon.
