Yep, it’s #TuesdayNewsday and here come some more wargaming updates >>>
This Week’s Headline:
We’re starting to ramp up all sorts of new stuff for you hear at The Armchair Dragoons. Look for some longer AARs to start soon, along with some more streaming events, like our Regimental Happy Hour. We’ve also got plans on the drawing board for some new video content we hope will start rolling out in the next 2-3 weeks.
