Well, with Christmas (and the gifts) done, I finally can post and enjoy my new gains.
To start, Rob bought me Conflict of Heroes: Price of Honour - Poland 1939, an expansion to the Conflict of Heroes series. I've never managed to play more than the first 2 firefights from the first game (Awakening of the Bear), despite really liking the rules. Let's hope I can get some time and drive to get it and this expansion on the table. Thanks Rob!
Next, the girlfriend bought me a Nook, from Barnes and Noble. I'm in love with the thing. Currently, I'm reading Anabasis by Xenophon. More on all of this in a later post.
When I came home from spending the weekend with the girlfriend's parents, I found on my doorstep a copy of GMT Games' The Spanish Civil War. I had apparently ordered it, and long forgotten about it (I had canceled all my GMT preorders earlier this year because of financial constraints). That was a pleasant surprise, I don't own a single game on the subject, and I've heard good things about this one.
Finally, I received a ton of free ASL products, to help assist with playtesting, as well as being a better player. This included a bunch of the old ASL Annuals, which was a huge surprise. I'm almost done clipping the counters for Beyond Valour, and once that's done, you can be sure to see several battle reports of Advanced Squad Leader as I work to gain more proficiency with the rules and tactics.
I got a ton of other great gifts, but they aren't really relevant to my wargaming, so I won't list them here.
Anyway, hope everyone's Christmas was awesome!
