800 posts?

I was hoping to have something substantive to say for this 800th post on Super Galactic Dreadnought--preferably, something spaceship-related to reflect this blog's original focus. Alas, I don't.

The entire month has gone by, and I haven't blogged a bit. Not much gaming for me, or working on miniatures, or much of anything else. I've been busy with real-life stuff, but I hope to have more free time soon for gaming and for blogging.

I want to play some more starship combat. I want to play Ogre. I want to play D&D.

What do you want to play that you haven't had a chance to lately?

Congrats on the long-running blog! I hope you find time for toy soldiers some time soon. I've been good about getting in games lately, but I have too many and not enough time for them all. Modern Spearhead and Chain of Command have been neglected for far too long.

Well done for reaching another milestone, or should that be millstone? ;-)

Game wise I want to be playing more Star Wars: X-Wing, but never quite seem to get around to it.

Sounds like you're very much in the same position as I am :-( . I haven't blogged for a while - just haven't felt like it - and there are *so* many games that I want to play. For starters: SAGA, Black Powder, Full Thrust, 7th Voyage, Fear and Faith (with a Scooby Doo theme), 5150 Fighter Command. And many, many more...

Way to go! I have been missing your Blog lately. As to game wishes ... all you listed plus any rpg and HoTT

Congrats on reaching 800 posts! That is a long time of dedication and love.

What do I want to play?
1. A gigantic Apocalypse style Sci-Fi Ground Battle, (NOT using 40k rules!)

2. A gigantic starship battle.

3. A gigantic Sci-Fi Land Battle LINKED with a Starship Battle!

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

Ski, is Spearhead a microarmor game? What about Chain of Command?

Ashley, X-Wing is another game I enjoy that I haven't had a chance to play.

Colgar6, it's hard to get out of that rut sometimes. Once things are settled, I'm going to make an effort to enjoy my hobby.

Latric, how could I have forgotten Hordes of the Things?!? It's one of the games that got me back into minis about a decade ago. I definitely need to play that again.

Maj. Guiscard, I'm also interested in running a sci-fi battle on my table linked with a different game on another table. Perhaps you and I could join forces to run such a linked scenario ...

Maj. Guiscard said...

I think that sounds like a great idea!
Let's reach out and brainstorm some ideas.

3. A gigantic Sci-Fi Land Battle LINKED with a Starship Battle!

I have been slowly putting together the space ships and 6mm armor to try a battle like that. I need to get to work on some rules that would mesh the two well. it is an ongoing dream project for me.

I played some x-Wing last night at the Hungry Gamer in San Marcos. I am trying to get some interest in D&D attack wing for next meetup.

I started a blog earlier this year because I thought I would have the time to play games, make/paint minis, and write about what I did. Started out pretty good, but things happened (our third child, finding a different job, and more) and the posting has taken a back seat, along with other things. It's just the stage of life I'm in.

I really haven't got into mini gaming yet, I'm just very interested in extending my boardgaming to include it. So, to answer the question, I want to try Full Thrust (for which I have been carving spaceships) and Pulp Alley (for which I have been making card stand-ups).
