Sure has been a while since posting. It has, sadly, been quite an eventful time. For the major items, please go to my other blog and read this. For the minor stuff, read on.
Simply put, I made a mistake that I do not think that I have ever done before. While in a scramble to reorganize the place, boxes were shifted around and things thrown to the bin that should have not been. Namely, the boxes with most of the ship miniatures went out - 1/1800, 1/2400, 1/3000, 1/6000 all gone. Now, I did not have a large collection, but it was a shock to say the least and with the other issues going on it pained me to no end.
I did find a few ships that were stuffed into a different storage system. What survived? My Langton 1/1200 ancients ships, Figurehead 1/2400 Armada, and a few odd selections of Navwar 1/1200 ACW naval. None of the figures are painted, and with the exception of the Armada collection nowhere near complete or even playable.
But, I think that I have a plan. An order or two were made, some rules purchased from a well-known naval gamer's stand at Wargame Vault, and another attempt to get games going will be made. No pics of the ships yet, as I am awaiting the last order to come in from Brookhurst Hobbies.
I found a couple of books also:
They look very interesting and I need to start in on them soon.
