The Great Decision

I have been in this hobby for decades, and as I grow older and find less and less time to engage in the hobby, while my hobby closet runneth over, I have made a decision...I am getting out!  Well, not completely.  I am going to focus more on naval and air gaming, which takes up less space, requires less terrain, and is easier to haul when hosting games at a local shop or convention.  I may keep a few land projects, possibly Vietnam and some 18th Century stuff like French and Indian War or the Legion of the United States, and if I do I will still be able to reduce the bins of terrain down to one, and clean out a crap ton of rules and supplements...starting with the Force on Force/Tomorrow's War/Ambush Alley collection.  

Speaking of that collection, I have all the Force on Force stuff for sale, including Tomorrow's War and all the supplements for both, except Ambush Valley as Vietnam is a period I am going to hang on to as one of my land projects.

Ebay listing for the above.

I'll start moving into selling the various sci-fi figures I have next, since I am dumping Tomorrow's War.

Future plans will be to take the three gaming blogs I run and condense them into one.

New Check Your 6! Projects

Ah, the latest batch of toys have arrived from Chris Geisert of I-94.  I have three World War Two projects with this grouping, a hypothetical Operation Torch threeway battle, a late war "what if" featuring the Ryan Fireball, and a Swiss/German encounter, based on an actual battle in 1940.  The turnaround time for the planes to be painted was less than two weeks from the time I shipped them until the time they returned back to my door.  I went with Chris as he did all my Korean War planes so I knew he would do a nice job.  The schemes were taken from various plates found on Wings Palette.  The tones are a bit dark, but look very nice in person.  All I need to do is to get magnets on them and they are ready of the tabletop!

To start us off we have German Bf.110s vs. Swiss Bf.109s.  

MSD Games Bf.110 and a Raiden Bf.109.  Cool Swiss markings, yes?

Then off to North Africa for a three sided affair.

Raiden De.520, Raiden F4F Wildcat, and MSD Games He.112

And finally to the Pacific for some very late war what could have been.
MSD Games Ryan Fireball and a Raiden Ki.100

I pretty much have the scenarios for all three projects worked out.  Time for some playtesting!
