Imperial Skies Battle Report 5 - Battle of Denmark Strait

I played yet another game of Imperial Skies using a Victory at Sea scenario.  This time I played Battle of Denmark Strait.  Again, I had to adjust the scenario to fit my collection of models (the Germans are on loan from Randy), but it worked out fine.

I upped the ship number to 4 ships for this game.  I know, I'm getting a little crazy.  It was a fun game and played pretty quickly.

I think I need to expand my choices of ships, but I am making due with what I have.

I will be adding some Imperial Skies ships to my paint queue soon.

Imperial Skies Battle Report 4 - Clash of Giants

I managed to get my another game of Imperial Skies played.  I played another scenario from Victory at Sea game, but this time I chose a historical scenario; Clash of Giants.  I adjusted the scenario a little and made it work with the ships I have available.

This was a very small game with only 1 ship on the French side and 2 ships on the German side.

It played well enough and I will be playing more of these small scale scenarios.  It gives a little different feel to the game, but that isn't a bad thing.

The great thing about any game is trying out different scenarios and seeing how it works.  I encourage you to check this game out.

6 x 6 Game Challenge - November Update

Guess what?  I actually got several games played in November for the challenge; I was surprised, too.  I'm still behind, but at least I made some progress.

I played 5 games in November and have now finished the games for three of my selections.  I still have 9 games to play in order to complete the challenge, but I think I can get it done (or at least come close).

I've been thinking about swapping out Cold War Commander for Song of Blades and Heroes.  This will mean I need to play 12 games, but I think it would be pretty easy to play 6 games of Song of Blades and Heroes.  We will see what I ultimately decide.

I've got army lists and scenarios put together for the 3 Imperial Skies scenarios and I have the three scenarios for Conflict of Heroes already planned out as well.

Wish me luck.
