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.
Last week I was in the UK for business and decided to extend the trip over the weekend to see if I could weasel my way into a game at the Legendary Posties game shed in sunny Gravesend England. To my delight I was deemed worthy and had a fantastic time playing a Crimean War themed game with the Rejects. In a surprising show of low standards, I was also awarded the title of "Honorary Member of Posties Rejects". I'm pretty sure this is the same thing as getting knighted so I should be free to pop in and say high to the queen the next time I'm in London.
Here's an action shot of me and my award enjoying a glass of Italian red on the flight back to the US. Being from the US, I'm not really familiar with how people should address me with this new and august title. I decided that "Your Grace" would do but really struggled to get any of the British Airways crew to recognize my nobility. Given their resistance to using my new title, I suspect the crew must have originated from Scotland and had just watched Braveheart the night before.
I'll do a proper battle report in a few days but I must say playing a game at Posties is a fantastic experience and reinforces how much fun a game with a GM/referee is. I didn't know the rules and think that made the experience even more fun. Perhaps the best gaming experience I've ever had.
I also learned that whenever Postie laughs, something bad is about to happen on the table.
Thanks to Postie and the rest of the rejects for allowing me to participate.
