Continues to be as amazing as the real campaign!  O0
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

This is the end of major land combat.  The big naval battle at end game remains.

After 67 edited screenshots and nine pages of text, the Battle of Guadalcanal has finished.

There was a titanic conflict between two huge Japanese surface fleets, US Marine Air Corps, and the US Navy.

Like reality, this scenario was a long, huge battle of attrition the Japs lost.

Admiral Yamamoto, zorched after all by the sleeping radioactive giant he awakened and filled with an enduring fury.

Press F to pay respects.

Congrats on the victory Airboy. I bet the Emperor is pissing himself now.  :clap:

Just wanted to swing by and say that I've enjoyed reading through your AARs. You do a great job of balancing text and pictures, having just enough of each without overdoing it one way or the other. That's something I personally struggle with in AARs. Its always a nice added bonus to see someone play who knows what they're doing too! Both in regards to game mechanics as well as period appropriate tactics. I'm also a sucker for naval combat on this scale. Great stuff, and congrats on your win at Guadalcanal!

Thanks for your kind comments.  I have all of the screen shots for New Georgia the next scenario in the lineup.  I've finished writing up about 25% of the scenario.

Life in a mostly good way has intervened.  I'm hoping to get New Georgia up in the next 7 days along with a number of other things on my game blog.

New Georgia campaign conclusion is posted.  I kicked ass and took names with this strategy.

Battle of the Philippine Sea concludes:

This update introduces scout pilot "Mewler" and his belief in the Scout Pilot Death Dance by Captain Skull.

On a happier note, there are only three scenarios left in this campaign!    :)

Really enjoying this AAR. The New Georgia write ups were particularly fun to read through. Great scenario that really gave you a lot of freedom in how you tackled it. Its always nice to see a plan well executed and succeed. I'm starting the Philippine Sea write ups now. Great stuff!
