What is this snow thing you all talk about? Before airconditioning, we did used to have a rule in Queensland that school was out if the temperature was 40 Cclsius or over (that’;s 104 Fahrenheit to the non-metrics). 40 doesn’t happen often but when it does…
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? 🙂

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.
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.
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.
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!
I have bookmarked a bunch of available pre-painted T-26s and BT-7s after our last discussion, but have still resisted. Only just though.
The URLs are not from facebook. As the images may not be shared via FB, I copied the images from Johns’s facebook page into my google drive. I then made the latter publicly available.
I never saw anything but the image squares in both posts. Strange it is.
When I first tried to get the images to display inside the post, I got exactly what you get – 4 image “markers”. So I edited the post to the actual links, rather than try and embed the image. They are on google drive and I have shared them to be publicly available.
I was not sure and erred to caution. Out here in the colonies it still gets regularly used but I think you have to be over 40 to get away with it 🙂
Ivan, I have a gas stovetop – popular over here (there are underground pipes for it), especially as it cooks better than any of the alternatives (only mine and thousands of others opinion of course!).
I have re-edited the post and created links rather then embedding the images. The links work for me!
At kyoteblue’s request, here are the four photos from his facebook timeline:
(Images insertion did not seem to work so re-edited and put in links)
1. Barbarossa Game Two , German front line with Inf. platoon in the fore ground.
2. Barbarossa Game two looking west from the Russian front lines.
3. Barbarossa Game Two also looking west from the Russian front lines. German Pz IV across the table.
4. Barbarossa Game Two looking east from the German front line.

Just this once as I don’t want to make a habit of it, I could copy the four photos to here…with your permission of course.
Ivan, I don’t “do” facebook either but am on it – mainly as a lot of the events we get invited to happen via facebook. I can then keep track of what we might be doing.
I can see the photos now. It all makes sense.
Last year I could see some photos you had posted to your facebook timeline but I can no longer see much, so I have sent you a friend request. Just so you know it is not some other Shaun.
I see where you are coming from Jack: Marine life and marine life may possibly describe something different. Possibly. At least one of them is more interesting.
Thanks for not mentioning any of the Russian tanks by name. I once again cruised the ebay store for BT-7 and T-26s. Along with a T-35 or two, I could easily spend a couple of hundred dollars there just on the early Russian armour. But I did not…yet.
I have no sheep (I will not mention the cow and enormous pigs, oops, yes I did).
I have played the first three games in the Operation Jupiter over the last week. Just have to write them up. All I have is pictures. I normally take notes but the games were too exciting to stop to write something. The report will have to rely on memory and the photos.
Do marines listen to music? I suppose if some orders them to do so, I guess they would…
Ivan – I do not lack belief in the communist horde. While, like John, I do play to the best of my ability both sides during solo play, I am silently cheering for the Russians when against the Germans in WW2. I am sure that does not cloud my judgement 🙂
My wife’s family are all of Russian descent – my father-in-law was Ukrainian teenager that working on a farm in southern Germany during the War. My mother-in-law was in Manchuria in a Russian enclave after her (White Russian) parents esacped the motherlans after being on the wrong side in the Russian Revolution. And then the Chinese revolution saw Mao kick out the Russians. So I do cheer the Russians! I am on English descent so tend to cheer the Brits as well. The poor Germans are never on my good side when playing WW2!
I was looking at the PSC 20mm tanks, but some of the pre-painted models from the Ukraine are not too bad if you buy a few at once to cut down shipping costs. Stop talking about it – I’ve looked at the pre-paints again!
Great game John (I am only just catching up on some of the threads). A lot of early War Russian tanks there. Jack and you have nearly convinced me to get some but I am still resisting.
I am getting used to Jack’s “hills”. I almost see them as wargaming hills now. Almost 🙂
