Evening all,

I expect you are all keen to get back to face-to-face wargaming, and in today's uncertain times, us responsible wargamers will be keen to wear a mask.

I've recently ordered some custom design masks for my wargaming, in relevant national flags.

The idea being of course that each commander can wear a face mask in his own national flag, and if necessary commander details or corps / division details could be added instead – more info on my blog below


As always, comments and feedback welcome



p.s I'm not entering into a debate on masks vs no masks, the law is clear here in the UK, so i'm not entering into a discussion about it.

I like 'em.

What a great idea.

I noticed today a certain East London Footie Club is suddenly flogging masks with crossed hammers.

Now I imagine some wargaming units might be "Restricted". Anything to do with any Axis Powers, or a certain flag from the ACW, or a VC banner might be unwise, even in London.

I wore a mask almost every day for 45 years, but it was to protect my "clients" from me and not the reverse. (Except for the occasional times when my mask, my specs and my gown were all suddenly sprayed with "bodily fluids" and only a thumb would salvage the situation. Then I was Grateful…not Dead!)

I think they are great! Of course, I've thought people should have fun with mask designs from the git-go. I'm really pleased to see fun, creative designs coming out!

Vistaprint offers a similar service, and may be more convenient for gamers on this side of the pond.

I kind of like the one that looks like a Claymore Mine.
