For a long while now I've wanted to get some Hirst Arts molds so I could build some castles. Some, of course, would be for gaming, but I also thought it would be great to use as craft projects to do with my daughter.
So for our first project I decided to do a simple round tower using the 4" Circular Tower Mold #52. In the end I ended up doing most of the work, but she contributed significantly in every step of the process, and had a lot of fun doing it. There will be more castle projects in our future!

This past fall Warfare Sims Ltd. released the long awaited modern wargame simulation Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations. I was very fortunate to participate in some of the beta testing, unfortunately I was so busy with work and family that I didn't get to play it nearly as much as I would have liked.
Finally I was able to sit down, play a simulation, and do an after action report. The scenario I chose is called "South China Clash", and features the US Navy coming to the aid the Philippines against the Chinese in the contentious South China Sea.
