Uniformology Review

My daughter gave my The Westphalian Army of the Napoleonic Wars, Uniformology Book No. 40, for Christmas. I am very pleased with it. It is a very valuable painting guide. There are very good descriptions of all infantry and cavalry uniforms with a basic history of the army as well. This booklet is 45 pages and includes 12 plates.
My friend, Jerry, and I are building the Westphalian Corps for 1809 and 1812 and this will make the task easier.
I have quite a few Osprey's and I can honestly say that the Uniformology product is now my preference when looking for a painting guide.
And they are currently on sale!

AAR. Eat Hitler a Nazi Taste Treat

I downloaded these rules from Wargamers Vault after reading about them on The Miniatures Page. The premise is that Hitler has a secret time machine and attempts to go back to 1933 to try again. He winds up in the Jurassic Age. The players control dinosaurs and who ever eats the most Nazi's is the winner.

We played two games with five players in each game. In the first, I started the carnivores too far away and the herbivores did most of the killing by walking over the Nazi's. I managed to snatch half a Nazi out of the mouth of an allosaurus for a tie.
In the second game the carnivores were among the Nazi's quicker. One of the Nazi's put a rifle shot into a herbivore which fell on him and crushed him.
Great fun, I highly recommend it!
