2019 has very much been a year of two halves. The first 6 months saw a lot of gaming and creative activity. My AHPC IX came in on target at 1500 points in March 19. This then rolled into adding stuff to be able to run a Utah beach game which was a great itch scratched . It does however need some extras and tweaks and they are firmly on the 2020 to do list . It’s also booked in for another run out out on the 7th of June.
Some of the extras are more LST’s. LCMs, deep wading kit and dozer Sherman’s , more assault infantry , more Paras , more Germans , more flooded areas. Then it will be a roll onto the battles for the Merderet. I am looking forward to that . My 15mm US ETO is coming along nicely , certainly over half done.
I also managed another weekend runout for the Sudan at Marks WHC

It will be back again in April 2020
The back half of 2019 was side swiped with an invitation to use my Sudan collection to help a film company with a documentary. This was a rare opportunity which was great to be involved in. I could not have done this without my able accomplices James and Martin ..thanks guys
