Chatting with some folks that follow my work here on the Blackhawkhet blog, it has recently come to my attention that some of my dear readers are wondering where all the batreps are. Anymore, Blackhawkhet is mostly a painting project blog, and I've actually created several other blogs which are purely dedicated to various wargaming campaigns/conflicts. I've been playing tons of games (I've been posting two batreps per week for as long as I can remember) and posting on these other blogs, but some of you are apparently not aware of these other blogs, so I wanted to post the title, link, and a brief description of what's going on, in case you might be interested:
Blackhawket, this blog, is the flagship, where it all started.
Cuba Libre (https://cubalibrewargame.blogspot.com/) I started this blog in order to do whatever kind of modern wargaming I felt like, wherever I felt like doing it. I had a group of Cuban dissidents stage an invasion, a second "Bay of Pigs," if you will, to overthrow the Castro regime, and then create a very warlike state which constantly sends troops all over the world to fight tyranny and oppression. So far I have posted 102 battle reports on this blog, eight of which are aerial dogfights, the rest various takes on modern wargaming, from skirmish to company level, 6mm to 15mm.
Island Hopping with the Old (Lead) Breed (https://oldleadbreed.blogspot.com/) This blog is dedicated to World War Two in the Pacific. My initial concept was to follow a rifle platoon of US Marines from the Fall of the Philippines to the Solomons through the Central Pacific to Okinawa, but now I've added in naval gaming and air gaming as well.
Sword of Gideon (https://swordofgideonwargaming.blogspot.com/) This blog follows the creation and defense of the Jewish state of Israel, following a platoon of soldiers through time, from the War of Independence to the Suez War (1956), The Six-Day War (1967), the Yom Kippur War (1973), up to the Lebanon War (1982). These games are played at the skirmish level in 15mm, though I'm toying with some armor and air gaming as well.
The Hakuna-Matata Wars (https://hakunamatatawars.blogspot.com/) This blog is centered on two warring African Imagi-Nations that just enjoy beating up on each other. There are ground games in 3mm at the company level and air games at the flight level in 1/600.
Also, for those that visit online forums, I post everything on the Pendraken Forum and The Wargames Website; I used to post on TMP but was disinvited a couple months ago, though a Marine buddy has been kind enough to help me out by continuing to get my stuff hung up there.
So I hope this information is helpful to any of you out there that didn't know about all the gaming I'd been doing, and I apologize as for some reason I am only able to get the 'follower widget' on the first blog I created. If anyone can help with that, I'd appreciate it, but I just haven't been able to figure out, despite having no problem doing it here on the Blackhawkhet blog.
