Limey Yank Games

April 2015

It is always a delight to welcome a new sponsor and this month we have two! VentoNuovo Games and Hexasim.

VentoNuovo Games. I'll be honest, this was a company I didn't think I knew of - but I then found I did know of their games (Blocks in the East, Blocks in the West and Blocks in Africa - their series of WWII strategic block wargames). These games have been well received and we're glad to be doing our little bit to bring the company to wider attention - especially as they support e-gaming.

Hexasim have produced many highly acclaimed games many of which, from this month, we're delighted to host.

We first started talking to both Emanuele of VentoNuovo and Christophe at Hexasim, regarding his prospective sponsoring of our sister site That site has really grown since we announced it here last month. And it will continue to grow as content is added. We think it is unique in providing 'self-guided' tours of all four 1815 battlefields illustrated, in part, by extracts from different wargames on the subject. Please take a look, subscribe, comment and spread the word.

With Consimworld Expo approaching (this June) it is time to once again offer LYG Polo Shirts for sale. I'll then bring US orders to the Arizona with me for posting on to you (saving you postage) or hand deliver if you're at the Expo (saving all the postage). The shirts will also be available mailed directly from the UK.

This year I can offer not only the usual Polo but a Premium Polo, a Classic Sweatshirt and a Premium Sweatshirt as well. The usual Classic Polo remains available too.

All come with the LYG logo beautifully embroidered on the right breast.

If you'd like a shirt, just use the CONTACT US link at the base of the page.

Note: It is correct that the premiums are cheaper than the classic - don't ask me why.

UPDATE: I've been informed that there are now minimum order quantaties being applied. This shouldn't be a problem but does prevent me providing the other shirt images and, MOST IMPORTANTLY) means I'll only be submitting a single order (at the end of May). So get your orders in in time please.

On a more personal note, you may remember me reporting last month that I was 'between employment'. Well I'm delighted to inform you that LYG Consulting Ltd has now been incorporated with myself as Director. Despite the company name, this is an IT Consulting (software testing) company rather than a wargames company - at least for now Wink. My first contract commences on the 13 April and I'll be based on Standard Hill in Nottingham - the location at which Charles the 1st raised his standard at the start of the (English) Civil War.

Thanks as usual to the support of our visitors, sponsors, contributors and donors too.

I hope to meet many of you at this year's Waterloo bicentennial and/or at CSW Expo
