Peter Shulman's War

This blog is a place for the thousands of people who visit and email from the web site Peter Shulmans War. http://peterswar.com/ I thought that it was about time the viewers of the war site had a place to contact and communicate with each other about plastic modeling, war gaming and anything else of interest.

Getting Started


I am totally new to blogging and it will take me time to set this up right. I will place a link to this blog on the home page of my war site. Please feel free to post any comments, ideas or opinions here about war gaming, plastic modeling, my war and the capabilities of equipment (modern or WWII). Actually feel free to post anything you feel like (smile). I hope in time this blog will be a busy one.
I am taking new pictures of my war for the site and will have them up soon. The war now contains over 60,000 troops and 4,200 models. The vehicles are all in 1/35 or 1/32 scale and the aircraft all 1/48. The boats in the new naval section are all either 1/32 or 1/35.


My war will be moving to its new home by July 28th. it will be at http://peterswar.com/ with a new look. No ads, no popups, much better graphics amd easier navigation.


Those of you who are in my war can request your service records. I will be happy to post them here.
Please help get this started by posting anything you wish. thank you.

Welcome to blogland, Peter.

It's quite strange that I just thought of you and your website for the first time in several years. I had previously shared the url with The Miniatures Page (as LateLink) and looked it up again today to share at ConsimWorld (mostly board wargamers.)

I hadn't really set out to start a Blogger blog, just thought I needed to sign up to post a comment.

Anyway, all the best,

Chris

Hi Chris, thank you for posting and thank you again for viewing and sharing my war site. I am in the process of re-doing the war site so I can place it on a paid server (no ads). It is taking a long time to do because it is 140 pages with 400 photos. When I get it done the new url will be peterswar.com.
My best, Peter

Hi Peter!

Was upon a time...I wrote you, i guess... two years ago. Im happy to know, you still perform your wars, and I will enjoy it.

Finally... I come back to plastic models, and Im very happy to have the same feelings like I was a teen.

I hope visit your own domain page soon, and Im glad to have news from you.

Best regards.

Luis.

Did you put my name to one of your pilots?

Cya.

Hi Luis, it is great to hear from you. I hope to have the new site up at peterswar.com by the end of this week.

Yes you are in my war and have been for awhile. I just have not updated pilot lists on the site, sorry. When the new site is up you will find yourself in the Green Air Force. You have flown 37 missions and are a Captain now. You fly an RF-18D with the 28th Recon Squadron, VIII Recon Wing, 12th Air Force. The plane with your name on it is in the forest now. Even thou you are flying recon missions you have two kills. You shot down one Mig 17 and one Mig 21 this summer.

Please let me know what you think of the new site when it is up.
Take care,
Peter

Hi Peter! I like your blogsite along with all of your others! I think blogs are cool and I do have my own on Yahoo 360. I'm a member here now and haven't started one yet. But I'm sure I will. ANYWAY! I'm curious about how I'm doing in your war. I'm embarrassed to say It's been so long that I've forgotten what to look for when looking for myself. So if you have time for an update, that would be great!

Love Ya!
Teri

Hi Teri great to hear from you. It has been a long time, much to long. I looked up your record in the war and here it is.

You started as a lieutenant in the green air force flying recon missions in an RF-4C aircraft. After 25 missions and prmotion to captain you were transfered to the 30th fighter squadron, X fighter wing, 1st air force. The green 1st air force is all women pilots. You are flying an F-16C aircraft, have shot down 8 gray airforce planes ( 2 Mirage III, 1 Mig 21, 2 Jaguars, 1 Mig 29, 1 EF2000 and 1 Tornado) and have been promoted to major. you were shot down during the 2005 war(by a Mig 29)and were out until the start of this year. At the momment you are flying on the north side of the mountain trying to keep gray attack aircraft from bombing green army troops. to find yourself in the war click the War button on the home page and then choose Green Air Force from the list.

I hope we can keep on touch more often it is really nice to hear from you. I will email soon I promise.

Hugs Peter

~Hugs back at you~

Great war game the pictures sure help. Why no helicopters?
Some of the attack choppers might make the game even more fun.

Hello Peter. Enjoy the site and the blog and find the sheer scale of the game you play staggering.

So, if I read the rules right, all combats are resolved by your direct-line-of-sight shot/counter shot system. Does this also work for infantry battles? Or is that down to a direct-kill melee situation?
