As the year ends

Well, you know, that when the year ends, the Alde Grade has it's problems. No internal conflict in the club (I have more weight then Peter so I always can persuade him) but we have to decide what to do for the next year Crisis.
Crisis, you ask? It's in November next year. Well yes, it is.
But we are only two, so we have to plan far ahead to get something ready for the next year's Crisis as we want a "new" game in Antwerp and our time for wargaming, including painting/making terrain etc is restricted.

So what will it be. We have two options: the around 1500 period in the Netherlands (Gueldress against the  Hapsburg forces) or the French Revolution.
In fact we decided that the 1500 period will be it. Not decided on rules yet (although WAB looks the best deal as we used it already for our earlier demo and we have problems in learning new rules (our name Alde Garde (or old guard) isn't just fun but refers to our age (over 110 together now). Figure scale will be 25/28mm. At least, we can paint Landsknechten, late Medieval knights etc.

The French Revolution will be our next project for 2013, at least we think about it but 2013 is also the 200th birthday of the 1813 campaign; I (Jan) loves to do the battle of Liebertwolkwitz; alll those cavalry. So you never know.

We got our website (www.alde also working again at last, so you will see some amendments in the near future. Peter will add info about the 1672-1700 period and Jan will add to his ongoing French Revolution information. Also some internal website work will be done.
Also I have added some info on the other blog about the FR:
