This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
My 1/1200 Scale US Fleet has been enlarged by two new ships of the line - the 74 Gun Third Rate USS Columbus (on the left) and the 44 gun Frigate USS Congress (on the right).
A view of the other side of these ships. Next up for the US is the 38 gun frigate Essex and then some odds and ends from GHQ - a Xebec, a 24 gun East Indiaman and a Baltimore Clipper. I'm hoping to put on an Age of Sail game in the next few weeks.
I had a visitor in my pool yesterday - a newly hatched Terrapin turtle - cute little bugger isn't he. He swam up to my wife while she was exercising in the pool. I'm not sure who was scarred more my wife or "Bubba" as we've dubbed him.
After making sure he wasn't hurt, I re-located him to the marsh and wished him the best of luck. It's a tough world out there for little turtles.
