Moving and cooking

A short update for the summer time. You've seen the coverage on reviews and some recent travels like Salute or the Burg Stahleck.

I've been busy preparing my move in a few weeks. I am trading in this view from my desk in the Chaosbunker.

Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung Koblenz

This weekend, was the 15th Long Night of Museums in Koblenz, and i remembered my visit to the Wehrtechnische Studiensammlung (Scientific Collection of Defence Engineering Specimen) two years ago. It isn't Bovington and it isn't Munster, but it is something. So i translated the old article to english and here are the three posts. Enjoy!

The Worlds 2014 – Day 1

I collected the impressions from the Worlds in 3 separate articles, each covering one of the days.

On the weekend from the 15th to 17th August the world championship in historical wargaming were held in Koblenz, Germany, among other systems Field of Glory was played. The host of this event was the KoMiCon, and the location was the freshly renovated Rhein-Mosel-Halle. As the parking lot was moved underneath the hall, we can't delivery parking lot pictures as usual to the regular guests.

In total there were 106 players from 14 countries playing in 6 different gaming systems.

Worlds, World Wars and Resin

Doing some errants after work. Just took delivery of my latest order. No nothing tabletop related, well, not directly. A new lense for my Canon, the EF 50mm f/1.8 II. Quite a plastic bomber, but well we will see what it brings.

But let's get back to the wargaming topic. First announcement, I'll be participating at the Worlds 2014 (historical wargaming world championship) Saga Tournament, as a stand in player at least for the first day. Looking forward to it.

I did order a small package at Warlord Games during the historicon, to buy one Dick Winters which was available for a limited time. But i didn't want to put the shipping costs to waste, so i added  a little something to the order. The stone walls, Patton, a SAS section, some wehrmacht bits and a squad of wehrmacht soldiers with IR rifles.
