The Tinpot Revolution has been somewhat quiet over this gloriously hot summer as I was temporarily lured away by fool’s gold, however, I intend to set myself back on track and forge on with the original plan.

My hobby activities have not been entirely stagnant however and I have recently picked up where I left off with my 6-Day War rules. These rules, as with most hobby writing projects, have been changed and edited so many times that I had to rope in my long-standing war game opponent, Graham, to play a  test game to re-familiarise myself with them. They are still in the very basic stages  only covering tank combat but eventually I hope to include artillery, air support and ‘dug-in’ infantry/anti-tank guns.

After our game I have a better idea of where I am with them and intend to crack-on with this project in the near future, for now though, here are some pictures of the aftermath of our test game.
