Hey Dude, you need to post some AAR’s over here again. We miss ya !!27/01/2015 at 05:09 #16304
Well, let’s not get too carried away. We don’t miss him, we miss getting to make fun of the glacial pace of his wargames: Attack on the MG nest, 1st Installment: Sgt Rock meets with Lt Stone to discuss the upcoming attack, quickly devolves to chatting about their wives. 2nd Installment: meet the lads in the squad and watch them play tiddlywinks. Installment 3: the Enemy: watch Sgt Steiner stumble drunkenly down the street back to his quarters, whilst Cpl Stransky milks a cow. Installment… Well, you get the picture! It’s his 10th post before someone actually shoots at someone else 😉
If he gets any slower I say we kick him out of the wargamer club, and he can quit fooling around and be what he was meant to be, a model railroader!
In any case, he should get his butt to work 😉
Jack27/01/2015 at 11:31 #16319
I am glad I have 3 AARs of games up m sleeve that I have played but not had a chance to write up. I would feel sorry for what you said about War Panda except it was the truth!27/01/2015 at 15:24 #16349
Come on War Panda, We know you’re alive…..27/01/2015 at 19:03 #16355
You don’t think I was too hard on the guy, do you? I mean, he is especially sensitive, even for a Canadian 😉
And hurry up Shaun! I assume more Operation Jupiter? I can’t wait!
Jack28/01/2015 at 12:24 #16383
It was only too hard if it was not true! And the AARs are for Operation Jupiter. I had no time while at the beach to write them up, and since coming back and going to work the next day I seem to have very little time to spend on the computer relaxing. Just lots of things going on, nothing dramatic and I am sure it will calm down in the next few weeks.28/01/2015 at 13:34 #16386
No time to write at the beach, eh? Life is so hard Mr. Travers 😉
Jack28/01/2015 at 15:04 #16387
Oklahoma has beaches …kinda…but you have to share them with cows….28/01/2015 at 17:12 #16400
Maybe I should add a “roll for the conversation topic of your men while they sit in a trench and smoke” table to the next edition of Five Men in Normandy.28/01/2015 at 17:42 #16407
At long least I’m logged long enough to reply! (Does no one else not have a problem remaining logged in?)
Anywhose…Talk about a thread looking like a thinly veiled trap! Come on little panda…come on…smell the tasty bamboo!…. step right here on this shiny man trap…
Jack you never miss an opportunity to display your Biff Bang caveman mentality to a BatRep
Lets take a look at an average AAR from Just Jack OK on this side we have a marauding gang of real cut throat weasels and who once again have invaded Carpet Land. These guys have to use d6’s without 6’s to fight…this is the thematic equivalence of the poor sods having to fight with their pants around their ankles…maybe this is a Marine thing?) While the good guys (just imagine an entire army of Just Jack’s…I know. Ugly thought right?) …… So Lt Just Jack heroically rushes across a field into cover under a hail of nerf bullets…while Cap Just Jack barks orders to Privates Just Jack and Just Jack to out flank the evil Weasels MG nest (MG=Marshmellow Gun) Private Just Jack gets hit in the face collapsing back onto the carpet, chewing the spongy pink fondant. …exciting stuff right?

Snort….glad you joined us…..Little Panda….step over here….29/01/2015 at 03:51 #16433
Kyote, put your pants back on!!! Dammit,that’s why we can’t have nice things!
Yum, marshmallows… Wait, what? Marshmallow guns? Nothing’s below you is it, Panda? Casting aspersions on my real-world combat experiences. It’s not like we knew they were shooting marshmallows when we started. I should have never left Candyland 😉
Oh, Carpetland, Good one… You’ll pay for that, Panda. Blue, pull your pants back down; com’ere cute little Panda.
Jack29/01/2015 at 03:56 #16434
Wait wait…I have pants ????? Should I wear them over my jeans ?????29/01/2015 at 14:51 #16458
Wow…talk about under the belt…Blue if Jack asks you that again just ignore him

And speaking of “down under” 😉 I see that my old friend Shaun from the country of Dugong’s, Dingo’s, Brolga’s, Galah’s, Quokka’s, Kangaroos, Wallaroo’s….%$& this place can’t be real it’s just another Dr Seuss Whoville isn’t it? Shaun really lives “down under” in Jack’s basement and is punished to play “ancient’s” if his WW2 games don’t include ridiculously large farm animals. Anyone remember the Trojan Pig…

Hey now War Panda, how about you comment on our AAR’s and or post one of your own. I have my game table set up in the 3 car garage and can solo game any damned time I want to.
That and I even got a camera and almost know how to use it.29/01/2015 at 15:56 #16462

True but you still have not posted any thing on Jack, Shaun’s or my AAR’s……..30/01/2015 at 00:54 #16485
LoL…you lot don’t deserve my expert critique…maybe some grovelling might work

OK grovel away War Panda.30/01/2015 at 01:10 #16487
LoL… Blue you old cantankerous badger … I think you must be spending too much time with Jack. Well as a special treat to you I’m going to search out your recent AAR….
Better be good…

That was a great exchange regarding the grovelling 😉
And Panda, you need to get your butt over to that other website: you asked me a question regarding the rules, and I wrote you a lengthy reply, ya bastid.
Jack30/01/2015 at 02:07 #16495
Good? It even has pictures!
And that Trojan pig lived up to its name – it was full of Germans!
Glad to see are still alive.30/01/2015 at 02:26 #16498
Good now the whole gang is here 🙂
I’m still alive (last I checked) and BTW that pig is welcome back anytime he wants to make an appearance…wait till you see the Brits will fall for it again; they can’t resist a bit of pork sausage 😉
Lengthly reply hmm…not sure if I’m in the right frame of mind for one of your long drawn out pieces …might check it out next time I’m in the neighbourhood 🙂

Ahhh, yes, of course. Translation: there’s not a child, teen, or adult present in the house currently to assist you in sounding it out 😉
And don’t try and act like my bloviating isn’t the highlight of your day.
Jack30/01/2015 at 03:24 #16501
Now now, at least he has shown back up…30/01/2015 at 08:31 #16512
I love you guys.30/01/2015 at 10:35 #16520
Oh, and Panda you need get all the name of the animals right. However, no-one says wallaroo unless discussing the rugby team. Wallaroo is obscure; the rest are not. M favourite name is the numbat. I guess the names are strange, unless you live here. I assume you are jealous as we have so many exotic species and Canada is too cold to have an except the moose 🙂 The downside is we also have 9 of the 10 most venomous animals in the world – my Dad was bitten by the second most deadly snake in the world (Eastern Brown) in the backyard in suburbia. He survived, just. Many don’t. We don’t have anything that will eat you – just kill you off!
And Jack (I wrote “the carpet hill guy” here but thought that was unkind) should be proud that you capitalised Marine. And ancients is actually my favourite genre of miniature gaming but I do WW2 to remind myself how the others live 🙂
Still glad you are alive; If I don’t visit TWW for about a week I have to log in again.30/01/2015 at 14:45 #16527
@Tim”I find that whatever cookie might be using to say “Howdy Tim/War Panda” expires after a couple of weeks or so and I have to log back in again.”
My problem is when I come here I’m already logged in “Howdy Warpanda” message. I choose the WW2 tab. Select a topic (generally a thread with my callsign in it where I’m gang ambushed) and when I want to reply (“want to” is a loose term here) I’m told I need to log in. I go to back to the Home page and low and behold I need to log in. I log in. Go to WW2. Back to the thread. And same message telling me I need to log in.
Sometimes it works after 3 or 4 attempts. Usually after the 3rd I’m done. Sometimes I’m lucky enough to remain logged in, usually not.
@BlackJack “And don’t try and act like my bloviating isn’t the highlight of your day.”
No, but Blue starting threads with the exclusive intent of having a panda hunt does it for me every time
@Ivan the Terrible Commie “I love you guys.” Typical of an atheist commie, trying to start a fight.
@Crocodile Ancientee “Oh, and Panda you need get all the name of the animals right. However, no-one says wallaroo unless discussing the rugby team.”
Hey now I know you’re not Australian 😉 The nick name for the rugby team is the WallaBIES not WallaROOS and these critters are real:
“The common wallaroo (<i>Macropus robustus</i> or wallaroo) is the best-known species. There are four subspecies of the common wallaroo: the eastern wallaroo and the euro, which are both widespread, and two of more restricted range, one from Barrow Island, the other from the Kimberley.”
See even some gezzer gave it a fancy Latin name so it has to be real!
Speaking of real. So my question to you Shaun (as if that’s your real name) who are you and where do you live. My guess is (and I’ve always had my suspicions) is that you and Jack Crack and one and the same individual.
My suspicions were finally confirmed when you wrote this ludicrous statement: ” should be proud that you capitalised Marine.” Even with your caveman grammar this is a contemptible and disgusting notion. Capitalized: “take the chance to gain advantage from” or “to provide (a company or industry) with capital.” Either way buddy hang your head in shame!
I’m not sure which disgusts me more: the thought of Jack pretending to be “Shaun Down Under” all this time or the fact that Jack actually plays Ancients (Yuck!). Jeez these revelations are just too much … I need to sit (or should that be shi…)

Now now, let us play nicely…30/01/2015 at 18:16 #16539
War Panda posts as many edits to one post as Jack posts AAR’s in one week 🙂30/01/2015 at 18:33 #16540
We can edit ??? Oh that’s what this button does !!! Oh and I can do this later !!!30/01/2015 at 22:40 #16553
There is a wallaroos rugby club in Australia. To us the jumping animals are all kangaroos or wallabies. I recognised our definition as I had to look up Wallaroos just like you did. It is an animal, and the term is still obscure!
And it is capitalised not capitalized when in Australia! The other definition of capitalised that you refer to in unknown is Australia where we are all mates and would never do such as thing as you suggest 🙂 Australia is a real place as is Canada and part of the Commonwealth. Does the rest of your family still talk to you now you are under the English crown? 🙂30/01/2015 at 22:56 #16555MikeKeymaster
I go to back to the Home page and low and behold I need to log in. I log in. Go to WW2. Back to the thread. And same message telling me I need to log in
Someone else mentioned this.
They said it worked for them when they went to the home page, logged in and returned to the thread, if however it still said they need to log in the refreshed page and it worked.
Sorry it is being moody on you.31/01/2015 at 01:17 #16558
Glad War Panda got logged on again. Now if he would post an AAR.31/01/2015 at 01:30 #16559
Yeah Mike I’m not sure exactly why it’s been acting up so much. But it’s been behaving just recently. (Which is more than I can say for some around here 🙂
That’s funny you mentioned the editing…I was actually emailing HO in Connecticut with work and as I was waiting for each reply I’d add to my …ahem…pleasantries…those guys closed down for half the week because they got a flake of snow or two and then their phones were down…I honestly don’t know how the US would actually survive if it got a proper Canadian winter.
And Shaun/Jack I accept your apologies It just became obvious that you’re not familiar with Oz. I’m a little embarrassed it took me so long to figure out who you really were 😉
Funny thing you mention the Crown Shaun is well…I actually come from a very passionate republican family …but my Dad and all my brothers are passed on now…my Ranger Wing (caps on) brother Jim is having a particularly hearty laugh with the whole thing I’m sure.
Anyhow was planning on maybe playing a game of Bolt Action tonight but not sure if I’ll get the time…

Heck, I live in Oregon. If there’s more than 3 snow flakes one state over, we close the schools.
I miss scandinavia sometimes.31/01/2015 at 01:35 #16562
Exactly Ivan…What would the Danes have done if they were afraid of a little snow back …Europe would have been a lot more boring 😉
