Command Tokens

More random thoughts here as I go back through some old photos. Some time back I completed a batch of command tokens for my World War 2 miniatures games. The tokens are made using models of officers and radio operators.

The idea is to place one by a unit to indicate that it is under command control and thus able to take actions this game turn. The number of command tokens available to a player would be a function of the HQ's quality modified by variable factors such as morale, communications, etc.

Here's a pic of the tokens I made for the Germans:

Tiger Stripe Camo

Ordered myself a belated birthday present, and it came in the mail today — a nice pair of Vietnam pattern Tiger Stripe camo pants.  Very comfy 100% cotton ripstop.  Pre-washed so they're faded just a little.  I love 'em.

I don't know why I love camouflage.  I think it has something to do with having grown up in the back woods of Southeast Missouri, Ozark Mountain country.
