Been a gamer since the age of 5, when I got my first set of Britians Confederate infantry. Over the years, I have spent considerable time with tabletop gaming (Airfix, ESCI, Atlantic, Revell miniatures). I also collect and paint 15mm American Civil War (primarily Old Glory minis). I also collected (too many) Warhammer, Warhammer 40K and Lord of the Rings to game with my son. I tried Flames of War, but just hated the Napoleonic look it has on the table. I much prefer skirmish type gaming with WWII minis. In my opinion...bases are just like counters and if I'm going to use counters, I prefer to play Advanced Squad Leader.
I have also played Panzerblitz, Panzer Leader, Tobruk, Midway, Terrible Swift Sword, Caesaer at Alesia, Wooden Ships and Iron Men, Luftwaffe and others.
But of course as family and career dominate more and more of my time, I have focused on Advanced Squad Leader.
