I got to messing around and in one day, I created Vassal modules for both Paying the Peiper and The Bagged Peiper. Knowing I could finish the other two postcard games in a matter of hours, I decided to go for the bigger fish and publish a module that has all 4 games along with the campaign game.

His Prussians beat me up at the beginning and then my Austrians swarmed his right flank to make the game interesting.

We are prepared to slug it out at Abraham for the game! The tension in building. Actually, the log is in my inbox, so this may be over and I just don't know it yet.

We are still working through our 2nd game. His Yankees shocked me and crossed the stone bridge and turned my left flank. Now, we are trading shots.

We had our first skirmish northeast of Gettysburg. I withdrew and headed east toward Mechanicsburg, while Jeb Stuart's cavalry linked up with another force behind his lines.

Whatever could I be up to? ninja

Still at the beginning. Sorry Chris. Tough log to turn out because of the excessive math I have to perform to try to manage the odds.

Currently playing 3 PBeM sessions:

Silarus scenario: vs Brent (Legio XIX) - we are playing through the Spartacus campaign - I believe this is the last one, it has been a good run.

Castulo: vs Iain (buffmeister) - working through base game scenarios - this is my favorite. No waiting in this battle, the fight started immediately.

Cissa: vs Paul (MtnMan69) - playing 3Ci scenarios.

I am playing Blue. Took a chance in 1966 to gain a hawk, but things went badly and the SVN government fell to a coup. At that point, it was probably "over", but Blue went boldly into 1967 with Operation Sealords. It won't be enough, but it is fun to cruise around the delta in my gunboat. Paul has played a great game, nicely done.

I have two games of this going on, on VASSAL. One opponent is working through all the scenarios with me, from simplest to hardest, according to Chad's list. We're three in and having a blast.

The second game is Scenario 5 - Operation Herbstwind - the second largest scenario in the game. It's down to the wire, with 2 turns to go to until Sudden Death starts. My KV tanks have my opponent's Pz III J's trapped in a depression under a battery of 76mm Guns. It's a joyful slaughter complete with mass tank bail-outs, but I have a lot of Victory Points to make up.

Just starting the campaign game on VASSAL, as the Marines. I've played this once before, and it came down to the last turn. TCS is my favourite series, so it's a pleasure to be digging into this again.

Two games of this on VASSAL pbem, playing each side.

This is my first foray into La Bat, and it won't be my last. I'm getting as much pleasure of the gnashy rules as I did with Advanced Squad Leader when I first started playing that. I love learning new tactics and complicated rulesets, especially when I can apply those rules to a series of games.

Last month I played through the first 3 scenarios. After packing the game up, I couldn't stop thinking about how much fun I had. This month I plan to bring it back to the table and play through a few more scenarios. I might even see if I can entice my 10 year old son to play through the first mission with me as his gateway into wargaming.

and I should be continuing to plow through our Russian scenarios this month. I'm really enjoying these scenarios and I can see that the Russians are a finesse army, probably the trickiest to play well.

, I'm back for more. I found that Sparta was a real challenge to play correctly. It's not all just rebellions and frontal assaults. Timing is everything and I'll have to learn some patience in order to beat those Athenians and liberate Greece.

I'll be sure to post some pics.

I bought this game back in January 2014. It's high time that I made the effort to get this game to the table. I'll be reading the rules and seeing if I can entice one of my fellow wargame buddies into giving this a whirl with me.

PB Scenario #7 set up on gaming table 3. Dan and I will commence operations next week. I hope to redeem my last effort, where I managed to get lead elements of the 19th Panzer division chewed up and spit out by Dan's 6th Guards Tank Army. Pictures to follow...

"Tsushima" Operational Scenario set up on gaming tables 1 & 2. Dan and I will engage in this scenario after we complete our current go of Panzerblitz. I will be taking the Japanese, Dan will command the Russian fleet. I hope to exact revenge for my defeat as the Russian commander in the Battle of the Yellow Sea. Pictures to follow...

Game is set up on gaming table "X" (also known as the dining room table). My wife Kim and I will be working on this one throughout the month (with the kids both at college and the fact that we generally eat at the breakfast bar in our kitchen, the dining room table actually sees very little use, so we decided it was "safe" to set up there!)

Played Holdfast with Nick tonight. This was as the curtain was falling on Russia. One turn after this, I tried a desperation lunge to cut the German supply lines. It was a total failure leaving Stalin no choice but to surrender. I had few units left and Moscow was about to join Stalingrad as a fallen city.
Good game Nick! I had a blast playing.
