Celebrating the launch of Rebels and Patriots by Osprley Wargames


Several of us had had the opportunity to do play testing for this new set of rules coming from Osprey Wargames tomorrow! So we clearly had invented a way to travel to future!
Besides us play testers three more mates from club joined in to learn about the game.
Juha and Kalle hosted an AWI battle with and The Lament Ridge scenario from the book.
Me and Marko hosted a Russo-Swedish War 1808-1809 battle of Vaasa, that took place 25th of June 1808. This was also the next battle in our related campaign, which has been on hold for a while.

We started the event by distributing recently arrived rulebooks for play testers and then having a video call with Michael Leck (aka Dalauppror), co-author of the rules. He was at their club in Stockholm. We showed our tables and club and expressed our congrats on the publishing of the game.

Hobby Year 2018 in retrospect

What a great year again!

Looking back now, I feel gratitude and joy about my hobby and actually about my life, as a whole. I have lovely family and wife, whom doesn't complain too much about my hobby time and all the hobby stuff lying around and stocked at our house, I have a job, that doesn't take all my time, but provides nicely for life and we have a great gaming club here in Helsinki - Nopat ja Taktiikka, where I can find other likeminded fellows to play with. I'm also proud to call many of them friends.

Nopat -club's annual summer trip to Kalle's summer cabin (where we naturally play a lot too)

Read on to find out what were the highlight of my hobby year 2018!
