This is a blog to show off my wargaming toys, projects, and to discuss anything that I have a whim for at that time.
I am currently going back and making my print format larger and trying to make the pictures bigger to make it easier on the eyes. But you can always click on the pictures to see a larger image of it.
Well, one of my first commitments is
not be so high reaching as I was last year with my commitments! I am going to be more down to earth on this

by the end of year, but to strive for more.

orienteering society, I will join it and be involved in at two events, more if
Clearing out the house: I will take a week off in March/April/May,
weather & job dependent, and get a “Got Junk” dumpster delivered to get the
old furniture out of the basement & garage, then go to my aunt’s and do the
same in her garage.
Inventory / Sell books: Complete my inventory and sell/give away to
charity at least two banker books of books
Record with books I read: Record which books I read over the year for a
review at the end of the year.
Make at least one post a month, but with the goal of doing three a
month. The subject and length is not
important, get me to keep with some regular activity is important.
Sight-Seeing/Events: Go to the 150th
Anniversary of the Battle of Pilot Knob, Missouri. Also visit the Cahokia mounds. Take one
week off to travel to both western Missouri and eastern Kansas for the 150th
Anniversary of the Civil War’s Price’s great raid, plus Bleeding Kansas sites,
or travel down to eastern Arkansas and western Tennessee and Mississippi to see
various Civil War sites. If the finances
and work are good, take one week off to go to New England to see American Revolutionary
sites and Lovecraft’s territory.
Gaming area: After the removal of the junk furniture in the
basement, clear off my table space and run a game at my house no later than
June 7, 2014 (incidentally, I am planning to run a D-Day game on that day for
the 70th Anniversary), but earlier would be better.
Mountain”: To completely sell off
everything 15mm WW2 that is not specifically for my core company size forces. To completely sell off everything of my 10mm
WW2 project, except specific pieces for display. To completely sell off everything of my 15mm

3) Finish making my base cover for the urban environment and have enough
buildings done to do a 4’x4’ game in an urban area.
