With those two games my 6x6 challenge is complete. A most enjoyable challenge set at the start of this year by Kaptain Kobold and got me playing some rulesets purchased but never played. My favourite challenge games was the Hundred Years War series which ended up running for 10 games as part of a mini-campaign.
The completed list...

- Dark Ages with Dux Bellorum (Osprey) - 6 games completed in January using paper armies
- WW2 Naval (Pz8 rules) - 6 games now completed in July.
- 19th Century European Imagi-Nations OHW Variant - 6 played. The final games were played in August.
