WR has moved!

WR hasn’t blogged or gamed much for the month of May or early June. Sort have been busy with…..

“Moving…..also referred as weight lifting with added benefit of walking up and down stairs with heavy arm loads on a very hot Southern California day.”

Didn’t need much gym time with all the miniature boxes and library collection either. Fourteen full car loads plus the typical U-Haul rental truck for the bulky furniture.

WR has moved into a new warren recently remodeled by WR himself and contractors. Flooring, new library shelving, some wall demolition work, new drywall plastering, paint, ceiling lighting over gaming table zone, and remodeled attached bathroom. That’s completes the living quarters leaving the miniature boxes garage storage situation (aka “the pile”) still to be completed later this summer, hopefully during cooler weather.

Chairs and sofa for watching the action or ports, a movie, or just unwind before the television.

More man cave comforts or viewing screen of the YouTube gaming videos, sports events or dance practice.

Library room and spare crash bed. Still organizing this room with piles behind the bed.

Another library wall of books. The last wall/closet has gaming materials, magazine collection and more shelves.

All good warren gaming zones need a updated bathroom.

First warren game was played last weekend with a re-scripted scenario of the Battle of Wartenburg (Wartenberg) October 1813. A Wartenburg scenario design and write-up, followed by AAR (with video) for the scenario play-test will be posted but a teasing photo below. Some readers may wonder why no Waterloo or other 1815 scenario since we just had the 200th anniversary. Simple reason…. WR friend Bob, who has the majority of the painted 1815 era British miniatures collection in our group, was actually watching and walking the Belgium fields of the live Waterloo event. WR has a collection of 28mm British to base up, the complete 1815 Dutch-Belgium army painted, but still missing the Nassau units for 1815 era. WR feels one must have the proper 1815 era Nassauers to make a proper Waterloo or Quarte Bras scenario and using his two painted Nassau regiments, from French peninsular service, doesn’t feel right.

Cheers for now as WR works the video editor creating the turn by turn Wartenburg report.

  1. Congratulations on the successful move and some of the purpose built features. We moved to our house almost 30 years ago, and even back then the I lost 10 pounds in a month from the physical work of the move, and said – that’s it – I’m DYING here and never moving again! Meanwhile, I have twice as much gaming stuff and we have 4 times as much other junk, LOL!

    • Peter,
      Local joke is the garage is a radiation free zone from the lead miniature “pile” shielding. I have moved the collection now three times. This rabbit never seems to learn Ha Haa on me,

      Should have Wartenburg 1813 up on blog this week (Scenario report with OOB then the AAR). Video to Youtube etc.
