Cool little VSF film

This is the first time I have tried to embed a video so let's see how it turns out; it seems to have worked.

Slightly cheesy but I thought it was pretty neat, take a look.

<object width="640" height="390"><param name="movie" value=" name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"></embed></object>

Just some stuff

As my kids will tell you (complain actually) I have a fascination with forts and other defensive structures. I can't really say why but I do. I have taken pictures of many and have posted some in Flickr, I have also posted some rules and the cards I made for my Castle Seige game.

You can find the rules etc at the Koningsberg1918 section, just search under "people", it should pop up.

Search under daftrica89 and you will find shots of Fort Wilkins (at the northernmost tip of Michigan and some other of Fort Clinch (near Jacksonville Florida) there are some other pictures in there as well.

I will try to post the Fort Pulaski photos as soon as I can get around to it.

Very pretty stuff

I got some Dystopian Wars models as a Christmas Present (thanks again Pat), the quality of the casting is remarkable, the detail is superb and they are very much classical VSF.
I am looking forward to painting them.
Here is a picture from their website;  I hope mine look as good.

Kudos to whoever filled in the "my profile" section.

I was laughing so hard that I spit coffee all over my monitor this morning (it is good I'm at work, I don't want to buy a monitor for home). Glad to see that somebody read my e-mail.

We may be playing Dystopian Wars if I get off my ass and paint the models in time (and learn the rules!!!)
