An Introduction

Dear Gamers,
Keith has invited me to join him as a co-blogger on this site. Thanks Keith! I have been wargaming since my adolescent days. That is, if you count the old Avalon Hill board games. I guess I got into tabletop about 20 years ago. Anyway, I have done a variety of things, but my specialty these days is "The Sword and the Flame" (TSATF). Last summer I went on safari to South Africa, and yes, I mean a rifle toting safari like in the days of yore, not a photo safari. (Although I took some pictures too, of course.) During the second week of my trip I went on a battlefield tour and saw some of the more significant places from the Boer-Zulu war of 1838, the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879, and the 1900-03 Anglo-Boer War. I have posted a couple pictures from that trip; on top is Rorke's Drift and below is Isandlwana. And of course I have a large collection of 25mm figures for gaming the 1879 war. So I guess you could say I'm a bit of an aficionado on all things concerning South Africa; hence the nickname "Bwana Bill." So, if you ever have any particular questions about any of that, I'd be glad to try to help.
More later,
Bwana Bill
