Firestorm Red Thunder: Battle of the Tulips   Leave a comment

Sorry no pictures of Tulips! ¬†However, it was one heck of a battle ūüôā

My friend Brian and I have been putting together two new armies for Team Yankee.  He has been working on an East German Army and I have assembled a British Army.  They arent fully painted, I know it is a sin, but we wanted to see how this works.

Firestorm Red Thunder: Onward to Frankfurt   Leave a comment

This is the second for us in the Team Yankee Firestorm campaign.  This week both my son and daughter played and I filled the role as game master.  In my role I tried to provide unbiased advice for both.  They didnt always take it!!  I spent the week painting up many models to bring them to game quality.  I still have several steps to go on a number of models.

AAR – Hasty Attack at Lollange   Leave a comment

Turn 3 or Week 3 of the Bastogne Campaign Continues.  This week I juggled between Longvilly and Lollange.  I picked Lollange because it has an interesting story with Company G from the 110th Infantry Regiment.

Battle of the Bulge 1984   Leave a comment

What if in 1984 the Soviets pushed hard through Germany and US had to defend the Ardennes!  Also how would a Team Yankee game flow on the same table as my recent Bastogne Game!

AAR: Seelow Heights   3 comments

Seelow T341

I had the privilege to travel with my command on a Staff Ride to visit the battlefields associated with the Seelow Heights and the Battle of Berlin.  The Navy never had staff rides and it was an amazing experience to attend one as a civilian.
