So what happened in 2016? Here are a few highlights:
I began the year with my Aetheria campaign - large scale air combat in a 1930s style imagi-nation.
|Destruction of Lucranian defenses at Mount Branson|
|Kate and Kip (coming from the left) take on smugglers|
I also experimented with virtual boards for standard wargames. Useful in a pinch but not as satisfying as miniatures.
|A horse & musket battle in Francesia|
By the way, I dug up an old reenacting photo. This is from Gettysburg in '98. I'm the middle rear soldier.
|Union soldiers at Gettysburg|
|Sir Dennis defends Anarendor from the minions of evil|
|Defending Zirconia from the robot invaders|
I was a bit reticent in making predictions for 2016 but I did lay out a few guesses. How well did I do?
- Family Game Night - We play nearly every weekend. Elizabeth has become a real board game aficionado. Lately, she's been watching Dice Tower and even told me that she prefers board to video games!
- 3mm - I definitely love small scales and started two projects late in the year. For larger actions (as opposed to skirmish), I'm definitely a 3mm guy.
- GADD - I never know what period I'll get into and it showed. In January, I never expected that I would have done so many skirmish games.
- One Hour Wargames - The versatility of its scenarios is breathtaking. For example, this space battle is scenario # 30.
