2011 Wargaming

I just thought I would take a moment to say goodbye to 2010 and look forward into 2011.  I have already made some resolutions regarding this great hobby we all share.  This would be the first time in over 40 years of gaming that I thought of actually planning what I wanted to accomplish. So with that said...

Conventions 2011
I am going to put on two games to start off the year of conventions at Genghis Con in February.  A Black Powder Napoleonic Peninsular battle and a modern Iraq Ambush Alley game.  Should be fun.

Then to West Wars in May where I plan to put on a Regimental Fire and Fury game, the Battle of Monocacy and a DBN battle at  Cryslers Farm in the War of 1812.

Who is going to Historicon in July?  If work doesn't get in the way I should be there at Valley Forge with a few of  you.

In September Tacticon will be upon us. I hope to put on some big games.

Which will bring us to Vet Wars 2011!  I hope to be running this one again next year.  The 2nd annual DBN tournament will be held with Terry, Andrew and Tony defending their top positions.

2011 Projects
This year I purchased N Scale World War II Pacific figures and models from GFI.  I want to start work on some beach landing terrain in the summer where I want to fight a few battles I have been reading about.  I am sure I will be looking for advise and suggestions on how to proceed from our club members.  It should be allot of fun.  I hope to have it ready to fight late in 2011.

I am also working on a modern Iraq scenario in 1/285 scale with Andrew.  We are going to be building terrain based on some of the locations where he saw action near Al Qaim just south of the Syrian border.  We intend on introducing the complexities of putting down your forces where insurgents start trouble.  Kind of like Indian fighting except that you have modern weapons to deploy.  More discussion on the rules, terrain building, etc., will be blogged later.

Of course there will be lots of action at the club meetings and I look forward to some great gaming in 2011.  So let's all have a happy new year fighting each other, on the table top of course!
