There's about an 80% chance a distant relative of mine fought at Stirling Bridge. Be kinda neat to see that area.

I hope one day to make the pilgrimage to Lard Island.

The Mrs wants to make the trip and see a bit of the whole UK and I think it'd be interesting, too, so maybe there's a chance.

TFL At The Southern Front Convention, 6-8 Sep 13

I have gotten three formal games on the PEL: Chain of Command, They Couldn't Hit An Elephant, and then play test version of Algy.

Re: CoC Participation Demo Game, 5 Sep 13

I've ran through 30 phases solo so far and plan on getting in another 30 in the next two days, one session a tank-only fight just to see what that feels like. I feel pretty good about knowing the rules as most of the questions I've seen about them I knew the answer or the answer didn't surprize me t...

My Second Convention Elephant Game

I ran the Kernstown scenario last October and that went well, so this weekend at Southern Front, I'll rolling out Brandy Station to a wider audience than it got back in June. It's a great rule set and the all-cav force composition makes use of the cavalry rules moreso than almost any other ACW battl...
