6x6 progress update for May

As another month goes by my progress in the six-by-six wargaming challenge continues to keep ticking over with a couple of WW2 naval games.

The aim of the challenge setup by Kaptain Kobold (hordesofthethings.blogspot.com.auis to play, and record in a post, at least six individual games of each of your chosen six gaming rules or boardgames over 12 months.

6x6 challenge progress to date:
  • One Hour Wargames (Tank-on-Tank) SciFi Variant - 6 games completed in February
  • Dark Ages with Dux Bellorum (Osprey) - 6 games completed in January using paper armies
  • WW2 Naval (Pz8 rules) - campaign set up and 2 games played in May.
  • WW1 OHW - not yet started.
  • Galleys and Galleons (Ganesha Games) - purchased "Wargame the Spanish Armada 1588" by Peter Dennis for the paper models. 2 games were played in April.
  • Hundred Years War using Lion Rampant (Osprey) - 6 games completed as part of a series of campaign games.
Having just completed painting a couple of Imagi-Nations 19th century armies. I now want to get a few games in with them, which means the planned WW1 games will be replaced by 19th century games using one hour wargaming style rules.

  1. Peter, you are really powering through the 6x6 Challenge. Great job!

    1. It helps that my games rarely take more than an hour to play, so they can easily be fitted into an evenings gaming. Sometimes writing a post takes me longer!

  2. Peter,
    Wow- you are certainly setting a pace with the number of games played...your naval ships certainly do look excellent- great modelling there- well done! Cheers. KEV.

    1. KEV, I remember having great fun making the ships a few years back, and its great to finally play some games with them. Thanks Peter

    1. Thanks Phil. I am having fun playing with some of my older models which have not seen the tabletop for years.
