While my job and sudden interest in R/C naval combat has distracted me from wargaming, I still haven't completely given up on war-games. I have bought several lots of old Minifigs 15mm terrain, including stone walls, brick walls, hedgerows and 5 arched bridges. I was going to include photos of them, but seem to have misplaced my camera. Also after reading Bob Cordery's review of "One Hour Wargames", I ordered the book.
In a previous blog I brought up about buying books for my Kindle. One very good buy is a collection of Osprey guides. I bought 4 so far, The Franco-Prussian War 1870-1871, The Mexican War 1846-1848, The Ottoman Empire 1326-1699, and Byzantium at War AD 600-1453. At $1.49 each, it is a great buy. While they are not illustrated, they have maps and are listed as being around 90 pages. I am going to try to get the whole collection in time. I also downloaded "Sino-Japanese Naval War 1894-1895" by Piotr Olender. After reading this book, I plan to buy a paper copy of it as the illustrations of the warships makes it worth the extra money.
