Hello to all, 

Just a brief intro to say hello and looking forward to being here.  I'm a long time wargamer, ECW, Naps, ACW, FPW & WWII,  altho relatively new to Blitzkrieg Commander. I started with BKCII and have BKCIV now also.  My gaming is focused nearly entirely in 6mm these days in all the above mentioned periods.  The more I look at the webstore here the more I'm dragged back to 10mm  Grin  I did 10mm way back with Command Decision but the figures/vehicles in those days were dire and BKC is so much more playable also IMHO.
Thanks for reading and looking forward to being here

Good afternoon Grenadier!

Welcome to the forum, a potent mix of insanity, erudition and debates about bases.

What forces are you thinking of using?

Welcome, sounds like a fun mix of periods! Please do share what you get up to with us all, regardless of the scale. Which part of Ireland are you from if you don't mind me asking?

Thank you to all for the warm welcome, a potent mix of insanity, erudition and debates sounds just about right in theses strange times.  

In WWII I am a huge fan of North West Europe from 6 June, especially D Day to Falaise Gap, Arnhem and the Bulge altho all WWII is good tbh.  I have gamed in all scales from 1/72 to 6mm and started WWII with Operation Warboard and some of Charles Grant's books !.....so not in the first flush of youth here  Grin Grin Grin.  I have probably played/tried most the major wargames rules released over the past 40 years  Embarrassed  I'm based in Dublin and whilst thru the years gamed with a club and friends, the majority of my gaming these days is solo
