6x6 gaming progress for June

This month has be pretty good gaming wise with five games played as part of the 6x6 challenge. Two were WW2 naval games and three were 19th century imagi-nations games.

There were also a number of smaller games played as I mess around with some 19th century European rules. After a series of these small games over both the this week and last week, the rule changes seem to be settling down.

A small game underway to test out some rules
So at the end of June my 6x6 challenge progress stands at:

  • One Hour Wargames (Tank-on-Tank) SciFi Variant - 6 games completed in February
  • Dark Ages with Dux Bellorum (Osprey) - 6 games completed in January using paper armies
  • WW2 Naval (Pz8 rules) - 4 games played to date.
  • 19th Century European Imagi-Nations OHW - 3 games played in June.
  • Galleys and Galleons (Ganesha Games) - purchased "Wargame the Spanish Armada 1588" by Peter Dennis for the paper models. 2 games were played in April.
  • Hundred Years War using Lion Rampant (Osprey) - 6 games completed as part of a series of campaign games.
I was planing to play a WW1 game, but having finished painting my 19th century imagi-nations armies the temptation to get them on the tabletop was too great and I switched them for the planned WW1 games.

  1. 2017 is half finished and you have completed much more than half your 6x6 games.

    Well done, Peter!

    1. I am really enjoying playing through the 6x6 challenge set by Kaptain Kobold (of The Stronghold Rebuilt) at the start of the year. It has forced me to get out a couple of rulesets which were just sitting on the bookshelf.

  2. Congrats on getting two imagi-nation armies painted up, a lot of rewarding play to be had there.

    1. Thank you. I am really taken by the Spencer Smith models which can be simply painted and the gloss finish hides any painting sins. They are the focus of my gaming at present while I get the rules to a state I am happy with. Not too far away I hope.
