Well you ask, what have I been up to on the gaming front the last year? not a great deal is the honest answer, but as I mentioned I have been to a few shows, and picked up some bits.
I continue to collect my Perry 28mmm Brunswickers, even finished the Leib Regiment !! I have some guns, Hussars, Uhlans, and a Light regiment to do.
Well what else have I been up to? Mostly Boardgames, that have been enjoying a bit of a rennaissance recently. I had been browsing U Tube for gaming vids, when I came across an excellent series made by Wil Wheaton...yes of Cool Whip and Star Trek TNG fame !! For those who don't know Mr Wheaton is an avid gamer, and has produced this excellent series Table Top.
Inspired by the games he and his celeb guests were displaying, I have added various games to my collection, and one or two I liked the look of anyhow!
So I now have, Ticket to Ride, Tsuro, Castle Panic, Alhambra, Zombie Dice and ( not on table top) Merchants and Marauders, from Z Man Games.
Another system I have started collecting, and has taken off at the club like a plague, is Fantasy Flight's excellent X Wing game,
This I have a few expansion packs for, including a Y Wing, TIE Advanced. The next wave should be out now....so I got to get me a Millennium Falcon...well you do don't you!!
