Hi guys. I am going to start doing a weekly vblog on youtube documenting my journey with a new WWII rules system called Battlegroup which is designed to be played in 15mm or 20mm. If your interested in the rules, follow along.
Hi all. I am not dead, just wounded. I snapped my left arms bicep muscle whilst holidaying in Italy. After that I had to endure a painful return to Australia for extremely painful surgery and an even more painful recovery. I did get to visit Monte Cassino in Italy. It was a great experience. But due to the injury I had to cut our holidays short and I missed battlefield tours of the Somme and Normandy. And a visit to the Bovington Tank Museum and HMS Belfast. I have started using youtube as my blog now which is the main reason I have not been posting. http://www.youtube.com/user/pbeccas
Please visit and subscribe. There is an awesome group of guys making short simple vids with their iphones. Its a great way to "blog" miniatures.

My first attempt at making a movie. Will get better in the future. We played Hold Until Relieved. I was defending, Youngy was attacking. The game went to turn 7 and ended in a draw. My Australians came off worse, losing about 70% of platoon.
