Tabletop gaming: The Therapy Of Fighting With Miniature Dragons

Here's an interesting article on the BBC web site that I was made aware of today.  I very much agree with many of the contributors to it that wargaming as a hobby is good for your mental health. Link

Reference infos – WW2 German Armour paints and camouflage colours

Today I stumbled across a very useful site called 'Resources For Scale Modelers'.  In particular this page on the site is is very useful if like me you are painting up some WW2 German Armour  Link.  The fact that he is quoting RAL numbers is useful as well.  I notice that Vallejo put the RAL number on some of their paints which is a good cross-check match wise.  What I would say is that, notwithstanding that Vallejo are doing that, doesn't always means they are a good match !  LOL

Quite simply my all time favorite RTS game.

Miniature Wargaming On-line. A Beginner's Guide

Quite a interesting discussion about gaming on-line in this u-Tube video.  I know all three guys and in fact John is one of my regular gaming friends in the Harrogate Wargames Club.  When we went into 2nd lockdown/tiering episode here in the UK in the autumn of 2020 I decided to run a few of my own-online games after speaking with John and also hearing how successful/enjoyable his were.  To date I've run 6 x Necromunda games, 1 x What A Tanker in 10mm, 1 x Dragon Rampant game in 10mm and one game of the new recently released Aliens Board game.  All have worked reasonably well with the exception of the Aliens game.  I've kept wanting to do some write ups of the games for this Blog, but lack of available time is a problem for me at the moment.  The thought of taking early retirement so I can spend more time on my gaming hobby is quite attractive...
