Entry for February 20, 2009

Well, the game Con is over, Bruce could not attend (thus the NUTS! game was canceled), so I was free for the Con, President's Day weekend. Played FoW Friday night, a Napoleonic Naval game Saturday and a 28mm Civil War game Sunday. I had a lot of fun. Still, I want to run something at the May Con. Bruce is talking NUTS!, maybe with Nazi Zombies....

My 28mm Ansar swordsmen are coming along as well as the FoW Italian Demolisher Platoon. As soon as the Ansar are done, I plan to work on just the Demolisher Platoon and finish it. The I think I'll do my 28mm and 15mm Egyptian figures at the same time, as the paint jobs are the same and it does not involve white robes with patches (at this time, next group with be the Ansar riflemen). I need to take photos of my figs for Photobucket, so all and sundry can see them.

Entry for February 06, 2009


I've played it the most and have all of them except CoD 4, which was modern warefare and therefore not my cup of coffee. I just finished re-playing CoD UO again and really enjoyed it. I forgot (or maybe just never watched) the end of the Russian part and the credits. Got me into a WWII skirmish mood. Anyway, for what it's worth, I would rate them as follows for me in terms of enjoyment factor=

Call of Duty 2
Call of Duty United Offensive
Call of Duty
Call of Duty World at War (5)

While CoD 2 needed some adjustment to run well, more so for multiplayer, I found out what I needed to do on-line and quickly fixed it. CoD WaW just pisses me off in a couple ways. The levels are too short but most of all even though my machine exceeds the minimum required to run the game (I checked at, it still runs crappy after I have spent some time trying to tweak it to run better. I still run & react as if I am in molassas which makes the game VERY difficult at any level above Basic. I've turned down just about everything and gotten updated drives and the whole sheebang but no luck. And their seems to be nothing on-line to help me this time, other than update drivers (done), get the Patch (done) and update some of my computer (NO). Oh well....there are other games to play out there, but my machine might have trouble with the brand-new ones. Maybe Medal of Honor??

Got my order from WarWeb of more OG Colonials, Dervish on camels, Egyptians & Sikhs. Huzzah! More to paint!!!
