Crossing the 200,000 Mark!



It has been very busy at school over the past couple of weeks, and hobby output has been suffering. However, this week my humble blog passed a significant milestone with 200,000 page views. Thanks so much to everyone who visits and comments on the blog - it means a lot to me.



This week also saw the first experiment at the school club with Battle Group Kursk. Basically we just chucked some units on the table to start getting a hang of the turn sequence and how combat works. It is initially a bit confusing remembering the sequence for different types of fire (area fire, AP etc), especially when excited 13 year olds are queued up to ask me arcane questions about SAGA. We started getting the hang of it though, and I can see that this is going to be one of my favourite games. We have a SAGA tournament coming up in a couple of weeks, but for next term the focus will shift a bit to Project Kursk, with plans afoot for making terrain boards and some communal assembly line painting sessions.

    1. I know, I know.... I agonised over which scale to use at school, then decided on 15mm to keep the cost down for the boys. So at least my motives were good!

  5. Well done. Great photos. I agree with Andrew about the project. It must be good to be able to bring your hobby to work. A super way to learn. PS I love the 200,000 mark picture.
