Still kicking...and selling stuff

I am still around, but have not been busy on the gaming front other than to start selling stuff off.  Up above in the bar below this blog's title is a link (click here) to the various items that I am selling.  I am updating my current list of 15mm stuff and adding a bunch of books on to it.  If anything interest you, just make a comment on any blog entry or contact me at sapperjoe2001 AT yahoo.com.  I am in the US, so keep that in mind for shipping.  

Otherwise, the only other gaming news is I picked up two new rules sets to read.  I am going to give them a read an see if can wrap my understanding around them and "get" the rules.  The first is:
Winter of '79 – Living on the Front Line
Civil War in the Disunited Kingdom
Mark Hannam, Matthew Sparkes & Mike Bradford


I am really looking forward to this rule set as I have been following Mark's & Matthew's blog for a long, long time.  I have already started down this road years ago with 20mm figures and what I  painted or had painted can be found on this blog under my "Anarchy in the UK" label.  I might try to run a game or two after reading the rules.
The other rules I have on order are the fairly new Osprey rules, Black Ops.  The setting for very small forces has my interest, so we will see.  

Cheers

Joe

Not looked at the Winter of '79 rules (though I did manage a quick flick through of them at a trade stand yeterday) but I strongly recommend the Black Ops rules. They are my go to modern rules at the moment.

Cheers,

Pete.

Hello, Pete!

I hate to say this, but I have not looked at your blog for several months, maybe over six months. Sadly, this applies to all of the blogs that I normally follow. I really need to sit down and try to catch back up. Do you have a review up about Black Ops?

Cheers,

Joe
