No, not that kind of shoppingAnother really tough couple of weeks at work and my energy for doing anything is pretty much shot. I have been idly thinking through what my shopping list might be for Christmas. That is, of course, the list of things I intend to buy for myself. Not that I'm selfish, I'll shop for others first but there is no way that I'm waking up on Christmas day without knowing that I have an interesting parcel to open. If in doubt, buy your own!
I'm happily compiling a little list of HTL kit. I think Napoleon at War: The 100 days followed by Gettysburg 150 (if that's out by then) or maybe the FIW expansion. As I would feel guilty spending that sort of money full stop, let alone on myself, that may be pushing it. However, I have found a list from a while ago of old Vae Victis magazines that I might like to catch-up on. So here is my list (all of which I think I can get from Vae Victis in France).
A small but interesting looking game of Bull Run (VV89).
Four battles from the ninth century using the "A la charge" rules (VV100).
A point to point on the interesting subject of Suez 1956 (VV92).
An issue with games on Crete (Maleme), Chir River (Stalingrad), Borkowo (1806) and Neville's Cross (1346)!
And one with games on 106 Panzer Brigade in Lorraine and Anthon (1430).
That's 12 games in all, just right for the twelve days of Christmas, now that's an idea!!!
