Antietam, 1862.

Last Sunday I joined a big refight of battle of Antietam. Some time ago Michael gave me his 10mm ACW collection, for a better use. It is Union infantry together with a guns. We used this figures so far only once and I was more than happy to use them again. In the game was involved 9 players plus umpire. For the game we used The Altar of Freedom rules. It was my first time with them.W ostatnią niedzielę dołączyłem do odtworzenia bitwy pod Antietam. Jakiś czas temu Michael podarował mi jego kolekcję do Wojny secesyjnej w skali 10mm, dla lepszego jej wykorzystania. Są to siły unii, piechota z artylerią. Jak do tej pory tych figurek użyliśmy tylko raz i gdy nadarzyła się okazja ponownego ich wykorzystania, byłem bardziej niż szczęśliwy. W grę zaangażowanych było 9 graczy plus prowadzący. Do gry użyliśmy zasad The Altar of Freedom. Było to moje z nimi pierwsze spotkanie.SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: From main book.UMPIRING/PROWADZENIE GRY: Sandy GillespieSCENERY/SCENERIA: Sandy Gillespie, Jack Glanville,&nbs

The Space Force

The U.S. military depends heavily on space for communications, reconnaissance, and detecting incoming missiles. Russia and China have been building surface-to-air missiles powerful enough to take out a satellite, Albrecht notes, a move that has U.S. officials increasingly concerned. In 2007, China even shot down one of its own aging weather satellites in a test of the technology that the U.S. protested.The Space Force
