It’s finally official — I’ve gotten my Ph.D! Since I want to try to keep up a resemblance of anonymity I won’t tell you the subject except that it has to do with contemporary warfare.

If I can get one side in plastics I could accept that I have to use metal for the other side. And whichever side that should be most numerous should definitely be the one in plastic. So if I get some specop guys in metal I could have a bunch of these as opponents.

Although tempting I am still however trying to stay away from gaming modern warfare since it would get my hobbt a bit too close to work. Anyway, now that I’m back I might be able to add a post or two on historical gaming.
