So as we do almost every year, I would like to wish my American friends a happy Thanksgiving day. I, for one, have many reasons to be thankful this year. Family additions, some hobby rules mysteries solved, and a bounty of great people with whom I game are all things I'll be mulling over while I'm devouring my turkey this year.
Also Sorry for my long absence, but lack of posts does not mean lack of activity! The next Soviet Company for RAPID FIRE PONYRI STATION MEGA GAME is finished, more 15mm modern Soviet VDV finished, as well as some 15mm Bolt Action gaming with team stands). I'll post pictures tomorrow. Promise!
I also got to participate in a fun game of Team Yankee played in Ken's new gaming room against some modern Germans! [Hint: Leopard IIs are nasty, nasty beasts].
So my top 10 gaming things I'm thankful for in 2016:
1. Black Friday Gaming/Hobby Store Sales
2. Black Powder Rules (officially, and you heard it here first, my "Go To" set of Horse and Musket rules)
3. Team Yankee and Battlefront Cold War line of figures - which are second to none in the 15mm world IMHO.
4. Zvezda 1/100 plastics (sorry all, I love them! WW2 and Cold War)
5. Nordalia Paint Formulas for Vallejo Paints (linked to your right on this blog)
6. Dave's Pumice Ground Cover
7. Minifigs 15mm Brunswickers
8. Rapid Fire WWII and Modern Supplements
9. Each and every SOC blog follower and special mention to those brave souls who leave comments on my blog
10. Great friends with whom I am lucky enough to occasionally game with, especially Ken, Brian, Rich, Mark, Phil, Alex, and Dave F.
