Storm Above the Reich – After Action Report – Mission #11

Four missions into the second season of the Staffel Roy campaign in Storm Above the Reich and things aren’t looking that rosy. Victory points are few and far between.

Storm Above the Reich – After Action Report – Mission #9

Two missions into the second season of my Storm Above the Reich campaign and things aren’t going the greatest.

Friday Night Shots – Removing the Shrinkwrap From New Games

It’s Friday, a week before Christmas, and the whiskey is flowing while I read blog posts. Or write them!

Storm Above the Reich – After Action Report – Mission #8

We’re in the second mission of the second season of the Staffel Roy Storm Above the Reich campaign, and things aren’t necessarily going that well.
