Man and Boy

If anyone has seen my hobby Mojo coud they please let me have it back, it's been missing for a while now and just can't seem to be bothered with anything that involves a toy soldier.

Fortunately you can always rely on kids to chivvy you along, so today my youngest (aged 5) said he wanted to play with his Sherman tank and "kill all my Germans"

So we played a little game while his brother was out.
Here's a few pictures:

20mm stuff. Revel Americans, FAA (I think) Germans, Ready to Roll tanks mostly and some Hovels, Sentry and scratch built buildings.
We used the "Daddy Edit" of the Featherstone rules from his War Games book.
A jolly good fun hour or so of moving and shooting, though tanks are extraordinarily hard to kill in those rules.
I lost, inevitably.

I think I felt the stirrings of my hobby Mojo and may think about finally finishing my Son Bridge for Rapid Fire! project in the New Year. The plan being to collect everything I need for both sides and the necessary scenery to play the Son Brdge intro scenario from the Rapid Fire North West Europe book. We shall see.

  1. Yes, we all lose the Mojo every now and then. Summer and a great win by the lads over England in the Ashes series has dragged me away.
    Good to see you putting in the family time, I'm sure your son appreciated it.
