Hey gang, I've been trying to figure out how best to show all the cool stuff I saw, and decided to just wall-of-pics it with video at the end. Brief summary: 40k tournament, Ancients tournament, assorted hosted games and tables, Force on Force 28mm
Cold Wars 2018 was a blast, enjoy the pics and TWO videos.

I found myself in London, Ontario on business recently and had an afternoon off, so I checked out the Royal Canadian Regiment (RCR) Museum.

Just got back from Cold Wars 2018, and while I will do a full write up, my new Roman and Napoleonic commanders are pretty sweet:

As I have no Russians, I would represent the Germans with my Grenadiers backed up by Marders and King Tigers. I thought I would face lots of heavy Red armour, so wanted the capacity to punch through it. Here are some of the tables, before the games got underway:
