DAF's Battles in 2018

Himself and the Heir Apparent tag team at Gross Jagersdorf in August 2018

I did a count of the wargame battles that I fought in 2018 and found that I crossed sabres 14 times during the year. Four of the affairs were solo games and ten were with groups of players.

For your convenience I have posted links to all of the game reports on my blog during 2018:

Gathering of the Wild Geese in the UK - June 2018 game.

The Battle of Leuthen - December 2018 game.

All in all, it was a very good year for wargaming that included two conventions: the Seven Years War Association in April 2018 and the Gathering of the Wild Geese over in the UK in June 2018. Conventions are a great time for catching up with old friends and making new friends. Isn't this what wargaming is all about?


  1. A spectacular year for gaming and painting, I'd say!
