    I am typing this one-handed as I raise a glass to Fred the moggy, may he stalk paradise and enjoy the 72 mice of ambrosia. My condolences Kyoteblue, but as long as Fred prowls in your mind he will have a measure of immortality. Remember him fondly.

    Best wishes.

    Rod Robertson.

    Buried Fred beneath a tree on my land. So he will always have shade.  I’m having a Failed Morale Check, Jameson, diet coke and one cube of ice. Till we meet again Fred.

    I’ll get back to it tomorrow, In the mean while.

    Col Sokolove looked on with pride the newest addition to the Ifat arsenal , an M-113 mortar carrier. It would soon make short work of the Bongo Haram fighters at Oil Pumping  Station Zebra.

    We have nothing to fear from imperialist mortar carriers manned by girly men

    Play a solo game if needs be. Keep the narrative moving forward. We demand our bread and games!

    I’ll be getting some 15mm TSS WW1 Belgians from Scale Creep Miniatures in later this week. So I may get a Great War game in. I will set up a solo game of NEIS tomorrow.  Maybe even push figures around and roll dice.

    How ever My Lady Joyce and I will be ( I Hope) getting a house in just over 3 weeks. So gaming will be on hold till we get moved. But I have claimed the 3 car garage as my Man Cave/ Game room.

    Col. Sokolove’s driver Fred stopped the 57 Caddy convertible and woke the Col.  Hey boss Fred said you’re wanted on the radio.  The Col rubbed his face and took the radio, keyed it and talked to the driver of the lowboy trailer, which was hauling the M-113 Mortar carrier. The trailer had shredded yet another tire. The whole column would  have to halt while a new tire could be brought up from the supply truck and changed.

    The Col. wondered how much longer it would be till he could reach Oil Pumping Station Zebra with his reinforcement’s and attack Bongo Haram.  He sighed and rubbed his face again, he had dreamed of Alcovia again the falling snow splattered with his squads blood, that nightmare ambush that was his first taste of combat all those years ago. He shivered in the heat of the African sun.

    Don’t think I will get any games in till after the move but I will try to add some back round.

    Good luck with the move and I hope the man-cave is all you hope it will be.

    Flashbacks and PTSD! Perhaps too realistic for toy soldiers? Well, it gives the characters more depth I suppose, so why not!

    Cheers.

    Kyoteblue:

    Congratulations. Good news! Best of luck with the move and the Anschluss of the garage. Then you can get your priorities properly realigned and tangle once again with the anti-percussionist fanatics of Bongo Haram at OPSZ.

    Cheers.

    Keep the faith brother and Amen! If you build it, they will come. The minis that is, not a bunch of dead baseball players. So when can we expect the next dispatches from Ifat to start coming in? What dark and sinister plans are Bongo Haram cooking up and how will the mercenary Col. Sokolove fair as his next attack is brought together and executed? Let loose the chihuahuas of war!

    No more excuses. Get Gaming!

    Cheers.

    Still sorting and finding my gaming stuff. Man I have tons of FOW stuff. Oh and almost all of it is painted and based. The same can’t be said of my NEIS modern stuff.

    Then in the mean time, you could always try out NEIS WW2 style to kick things off

    Just so happens that FiveCore Company Commander will work pretty well with FOW bases 😉

     

    Pop me your email and I’ll hook you up with copies and you can mail me moneys at your leisure.

    Got my NEIS table set up today and soon will play the last game of OPSZ then on to the next part of the campaign.  Mistress Elvira’s School for Girls.

    Kyoteblue:

    Mistress Elvira’s School for Girls? What, is Col. Sokolove going to be doing; some cross-training/cross-dressing? Or does it naturally follow that when the oil boom is restarted by the recapture of the station, the bust must follow?

    Cheers.

    Yay re the table…. not sure on the other bit until more intel comes through from our spies.

    It was just past dawn at Oil Pumping Station Zebra, when Col Sokolove ordered the assault to begin. It was then the explosions started. Bongo Haram  had anticipated Col Sokolove’s attack and blown the pumping station and disappeared into the desert.

    Just as the Col reached for the radio it came to life with a frantic call from Al Sinq , Bongo Haram had raided Mistress Elvira’s School for Girls , kidnapping the Mistress and 20 of her girls !!

    So ends the first part of my campaign, next up the pursuit of Bongo Haram and hopeful the rescue of Mistress Elvira and her girls.

    Due to the demand of my readers I will start a new thread about the Rescue Of Mistress Elvira and the Fivecore Company Command rules.  Just need to base and paint more troops. Damn you Ivan !!!

    No worries – I figured you were busy from the NWG email updates that were coming out.
