Finally got the AAR's for Turns 4 & 5 done. I actually played these games a month ago but didn't have the chance to get this done. This weekend I will be playing the final turn to conclude the campaign. The campaign rules and tactical rules are from The Solomons Campaign and GQ3 respectively, both published by ODGW.

Nice writeup!!

(You need to work on your photograhy, though…)

Thanks for the comments.

The quality of the pictures is due to the 10 year old camera that I am using. The wife was using our good one.

More specifically, it looks like the camera moved during the exposures. So you need either a faster shutter speed, or more light, or a tripod in order to allow time exposures The 3rd option requires a means to trip the shutter without moving the camera, such as a cable release or a timer. You could fix these things with almost any camera, even a 10-year old one. :-)

However, I'm just being picky here; your posts on the campaign are fascinating regardless. Also, I like the way you lit the night battles differently from the daylight ones. Do you use a different playing surface for night? It looks darker.

I used a black sheet for night battles and a blue sheet for the day, I wanted to make sure that night battles actually looked like night battles. The lighting wasn't on purpose I think the daylight outside actually was changing to dusk while we were playing.
