paper terrain

I am a big fan of paper terrain for 6mm, and there is quite a lot to choose from, much of it on the web for free from industrious individuals who are posting their workgratis. Here is one site I found recently with very good Dutch buildings.

Why is it that printers are so sloppy about customer service. We have had nought but bad experiences with unreturned phone calls, and emails etc from divers printers. One of which is no longer in business. Now we are going through the same thing again. Very frustrating.

the worst thing about pre production

We are now getting ready to send off Sudden Storm to the printer. This always takes longer than one wants it to.

1930's carrier Ops

Good video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyTx1vrDknI&feature=player_profilepage
It is easy to see why a carrier deck is dangerous from this video.

I have made some good progress recovering from my stroke, and am going home next weekend.  I have been in "facilities" of one kind or another since the car crash resulting from my stroke, on the 4th of July.  I am very excited to be returning to familiar tranquil environs.  I will probably get more work done there, too.

Sudden Storm

Sudden Storm is winding its way towards publication.  Though we have no date set yet.  Stay tuned for word on this substantial module. It is jam-packed with historical information—OOB's, and politics of the period, the result of several years of research into Japanese and American political history.

Sudden Storm

Here is the back cover which has a more complete list of what the game will contain.  We are very excited about this module, as playtesting has shown it to be a very involving experience, with lots of different strategies possible.

new stuff


front cover
Our next project for General Quarters will be a campaign module postulating a war between the U.S. and Japan in 1937.  This is not strictly speaking a War Plan Orange war, but represents a great period for naval wargaming where the surface ship still reigned supreme.  This game contains submarine and nascent carrier warfare, as well as ground combat in and around the south Pacific, notably the Philippines.  Look for details on our website.
