Right, as some might have noticed the Midway OoB has been put up for download, this one was a byproduct of the Midway 75-year anniversary article series I worked on with Beasts of War.

We got a big mention in the Beasts of War weekender about halfway:
www.beastsofwar.com/the-weekender/sneak-...rgaming-wwii-midway/

And the first part of the series is available here:

This certainly was a nice surprise to wake up to! How long had you had this going behind the scenes?

About 6 weeks I think. I've sent a veritable fleet of pictures that way, so prepare for some nice shots in the coming articles. There are 5 parts, each monday a new part gets published.

Good afternoon, Naval War -

My name is James Johnson - aka "Oriskany" - Historical Editor on the Beasts of War site.

Just wanted to drop a note and say what a great site and community this is, and how much help "Naval Wart HQ" has been in getting this series put together and up on the site. So far it's gotten a great response, and helping raise the profile of naval wargaming in general on Beasts of War.

Part Three is up - withe the dramatic carrier strike on the Japanese fleet:

I actually hope to put some US and Japanese cruisers and destroyers on the table this weekend!

Thanks!

James "Oriskany"

Hello James and welcome to the Naval War community!

The cooperation has been fruitful for both our communities, with over 25 new members on the Naval War site since the articles went online. Now let's hope that some games get played and that players have a good time with the set (and leave some battlereports and feedback while their at it :))

In the meantime, part four is also published, check it out at: www.beastsofwar.com/historical/midway-75...ing-point-part-four/
