Life Goes On

My mother-in-law, Rosemary, died suddenly a week and a half ago due to complications with the surgery she decided in the end to have. Either way, she was faced with a terrible choice; a slow deterioration which could rob her of a meaningful life, or a risky operation which offered her a chance of total recovery or catastrophic failure. After a week in which her symptoms only got worse, she opted to take the surgery with the proviso that if anything went wrong, she would be allowed to die without intervention. The surgeries themselves went without a hitch; it was just her body's reaction to them that was the risk factor, and unfortunately the worst happened.

Each of the four grandkids was presented with a little enamel box and instructed to fill it with thi

Mediterranean Sea and Boer War. Morze Śródziemne i wojna burska.

Hi! Recently I don't have a lot of time for blogging and that because I am working hard with Simon Miller (creator of To the Strongest! rules) on Polish late Medieval army list. As soon as it will be done, you will be first, who get that news. I promise! Back to the blog and gaming. During last two weeks I had two games. First with General Quarters  2WW Mediterranean naval game, Regia Marina versus Royal Navy. Second was First Boer War with The Men Would be the Kings. Both reports will be short. As soon as the list will ready, I will be back with longer posts.Cześć! Obecnie nie posiadam zbyt dużej ilości czasu na blogowanie, a to z powodu tego, że wspólnie z simonem Millerem (twórcą zasad To the Strongest!) pracujemy nad listą armijną dla Polaków na okres późnego średniowiecza. Jak tylko będzie ona gotowa, będziecie pierwszymi, którzy się o tym dowiedzą. Obiecuję! Wracając do blogu i gier. W ciągu ostatnich dwóch tygodni rozegrałem dwie gry. Pierwsza z zasadami General Quarters, drugowojenne starcie w bi

Kümmerling, 1512.

Last week game was Italian Wars with  Pike and Shotte rules game. It  started with small delay, as both main figure suppliers were argue about the size (of armies and the table, of course). When they finally get some agreement we were able to start the game.W ostatni czwartek naszą grą były wojny włoskie z użyciem zasad Pike and Shotte. Rozgrywka rozpoczęła się z małym poślizgiem, ponieważ dwóch głównych dostawców figurek spierało się o rozmiar (armii i stołu, rzecz jasna). Kiedy już w końcu udało im się dojść do porozumienia, mogliśmy zacząć naszą grę.SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: Michael SchneiderUMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Michael SchneiderSCENERY/SCENERIA: SESWCFIGURES & MODELS/FIGURKI I MODELE: Michael Schneider, Angus Konstam,  Bartek Żynda1.

Granja de la Abundancia, 1810.

Last Thursday we had great come back to the club. Bill Gilchrist after long absence finally visited us with a game. He returned with his favourite set of rules: Black Powder. It was good, because he knows some news about upcoming version 2 of the rules, so it was great share some gossips with him. For our game he chose the scenario  Granja de la Abundancia from the Triumph of the Albion, the BP supplement.W ostatni czwartek zanotowaliśmy wielki powrót do naszego klubu. Bill Gilchrist po długiej absencji postanowił nas odwiedzić i zagrać z nami. Powrócił z jego ulubionymi zasadami, czyli Black Powder. Było to o tyle dobre, że podzielił się z nami kilkoma nowościami z nadchodzącej wersji 2 zasad i świetnie było tego posłuchać. Dla naszej gry wybrał scenariusz Granja de la Abundancia z Triumph of the Albion, dodatku do BP.SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: Granja de la Abundancia scenario from the Triumph of the Albion suplementUMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Bill GilchristSCENERY/S
