All these worlds are yours except Europa.

Just over one year ago, I posted Episode AT-1, and began my attempt to keep up the great podcast Troy started. 52 weeks later, I have posted 13 episodes.

The fact is, keeping up with the podcast has proven too much for me. Podcasting is, for me, a meta-hobby: a secondary hobby in which I talk about my favorite hobby: wargaming. As my free time has shrunk, I find myself choosing painting and gaming over talking-about-gaming-and-painting. I have also made the fatal, time-crushing mistake of buying a PS3.

I want to thank all of you who have followed the show, and emailed or tweeted your thoughts. If anyone is interested in carrying on the mission, please email or tweet. If I don’t hear from anyone, the site will go offline when the domain expires in February 2011.

As for the items I have yet to review, Zac at Tabletop Gaming News has invited me to return to writing reviews for the site, which I will do for each item I have. I would like to thank Bastion, Hasslefree, Mercs, and Cipher Studios and Darkson Designs for sending me review items.
I also hope to return to recording episodes of “The Score” for the D6 Generation.

Thank you for supporting and listening to This Week in Wargaming.

Off to the Williamsburg Muster!

This week, I am wrapping up preparations to run two games at this weekend’s Williamsburg Muster, including Incursion (with generous prize support from Grindhouse Games, thanks Jim!), and Polyversal, a 6mm sci-fi game of my own creation. The local weather forecast is in limbo between rain, freezing rain, and snow, which may cut my trip a bit short, but I have a fresh black T-shirt, and am undaunted. I hope to get at least one interview at the show, and will perhaps have some color commentary and summary in a future TWIW. In the meantime, enjoy this bit of real-life advertising for the Austrian Army, the Österreichisches Bundesheer, courtesy of Maurice Walshe, and the Bedford Gladiators.
