18th Century Collection

A couple of weeks ago, when we played Saga, Nacho and I also set up our ongoing 18th century 1/72 collections to take some pictures. The goal was to incetivize us to continue painting until we have enough to be able to use Might and Reason.

Here are some pictures and video (click for larger pictures)

SAGA (again)!

After a very long time, me and Nacho had the chance to play some Saga (the new edition). We used 1/72 Hat, Strelets, Italieri figures, and we played Milites Chisti (me) vs. Moors( Nacho). All in all we had a good time (taking a break to watch the The Great War Series Armistice episode) and the new Saga is excellent with the rules changes making for a more aggressive and fast game.

You can find a video at this link!

Here are a lot of photos from our two games. I lost both, with the first one being a closer call. But I had so much fun!

OHI Day-Ημέρα του Οχί

Today  is the anniversary of the onset of the Greek-Italian War of 1940. By 1941 it will become part of the wider World War. In Greece the war is considered a watershed moment. It seemed to be a point of time were the deep divides of the National Schism got overcome. It also helped somewhat mitigate the deep trauma from the defeat in the Greek-Turkish War of 1919-1923 (which you can learn more of by following my monthly YouTube series Salvation and Catastrophe.).


The first radio announcement of the initiation of the Italian attack.
