I just realized that I have not acknowledged the recent followers who joined. Sorry about that.

The most recent is Stuart Surridge. Stuart, welcome aboard. Stuart's blog is at http://dusttears.blogspot.co.uk/ I don't see a link to a blog for you. Please let me know if you have one and I will happily post a link. He has a very nice AAR on a recent modern Africa game up at the moment. It is well worth a visit.

Next up is Brian English. Brian (if I have the right guy) is a regular gaming opponent of mine. I guess I have to be careful on just how biased my AARs are in the future. :)

I have recently been enjoying Simon Scarrow's Cato series. Unfortunately, I started them from the middle of the series due to what was available at the library. They are really pushing me forward with the Wacht am der Rhine project. They have been highly entertaining. But one thing they keep referring to is Legions having slings as part of their kit. I have found no other references for this. Anyone know of the validity of the Legions giving slings to their infantry? Seems like Mr Scarrow is just being creative to me. I know that there were Auxiliary cohorts that were so equipped.

Until next time.
