A New Blog

I know I haven’t posted in a while, but I was kind of uninspired and then the whole COVID business started and suddenly other things occupied my mind. This also means I didn’t get much miniatures gaming in. I do, however, play a lot of D&D nowadays – using Discord, it’s easy to get together a group that is physically distant!

There is one thing I started, though: a new blog! As you all know, I have been fascinated by the American Civil War for a couple of years now. I have now decided to put all this together on a new blog. This will feature essays on historical topics (which feel kind of out of place at The Raft) as well as scenarios for wargames (mainly Sharp Practice).

So, please consider following Stauchendiciler!

The first post is an essay speculating about the origin of the phrase “opening the ball”, which was used to describe the beginning of a battle.

And if you wonder about the name of the blog – the “About” page offers an explanation!

Stauchendiciler also has a Facebook page and I’d be happy if you’d consider following it!

And for those of you not interested in the American Civil War: Don’t worry, The Raft will continue. I will post about my hobby activities and all my science fiction and fantasy stuff here.

    All the best with your new blog, and I’m very glad you’re not abandoning ‘The Raft’, because I’ve enjoyed reading your posts.
    I’m not a fan, or even particularly interested in, the ACW, but plenty of people are, so I reckon you’ll get a good readership!
    Best wishes, Richard (AKA, Captain Squib)

      Thank you Richard! I’m sure inspiration for writing posts for The Raft will come back, especially when gaming starts again.

    I’m sure inspiration will return, Thomas!
    You have a flair for writing up your games and modelling.
