    The adventures of Colonel Blimp - a Kaiserreich AAR

    The adventures of Colonel Blimp – a kaiserreich campaign



    A world without Britain, the impossible has happened. Not a day passed that Colonel Blimp didn’t long to return to Old Blighty. But return wouldn’t be possible, not while those dastardly evil syndicalists ruled Britain. Ever since the revolution he and the other members of the better classes where forced to exile to Canada.

    But like any truly Englishman, Blimp will not accept the unacceptable unless there is no other choice than to accept accepting the unacceptable, ofcourse. Syndicalism, Populism, Frenchism, Germanicism and any other non-British –ism will be challenged to restore the natural British Order of Things.


    Colonel Blimp, the leading man in this epic AAR

    Together with his trusted aide-de-camp George, his personal secretary Mainwaring and his trusted bulldog Sir Winston, Colonel Blimp will change the world as we never knew it.

    Best AAR concept ever. Please do finish this

    Perhaps Blimp's first port of call should be those wayward colonies to the South?

    The Butterfly Effect: A British AAR - The finest and most spectacularly slower-than-real-time British AAR on the board. Updated 11th February 2014 featuring Soviet prop shafts, begging Italian admirals and spicy Royal Netherlands Navy indecision.

    Inevitable Defeat - Slovakia '44 - The award winning characters Tiso and Tuka attempt to save Slovakia from defeat and destruction. It probably wont end well. It definitely did win an AARland Choice Comedy Award. Updated 16th September 2013. Voting is still technically ongoing in the 'Which Malar' mystery, but it has been for quite some time.

    A day at the office

    Canada, a nation with more grizzlybears than people. The Colonel sighted, ever since his exile he had worked tirelessly, except when he was tired ofcourse, to build something resembling an army in this barbaric country. A country where people obviously had no idea whatsoever when it came to fighting a war. Some dimwitted Canadian officer had even suggested replacing horses with vehicles! Madness!
    What happened to the good old days, when British power was properly respected?


    The average Canadian

    Sometimes the Colonel envied his pet bulldog, Sir Winston, who was happily asleep in a corner of the office, oblivious to all the evils that threatened the British way of life. The Colonel had named the little chap after a good friend from the Club, mostly because of their stunning likeness. Both where tenacious, stubborn and overweight. They even shared a love of good Whiskey, as the Colonel had found out after accidentally dropping a fine Scotch on the floor of the office. Ever since that day Sir Winston would get quitte upset if he didn’t get his afternoon drink…

    The Colonel was too lost in his own thoughts about the good old days of yore to notice that two men had entered his office:

    "Goodmorning Sir

    “George! By the queens corset, what are you doing storming into my office?”

    Excuse me sir, he busted in here before I could stop him”.

    “It’s alright Mainwaring, George is just an impetuous young man. Strapping lads like George should be energetic”.

    Before him stood Lieutenant George, his aide-de-camp and Captain Mainwaring, his secretary. George was a somewhat dense, but energetic young lieutenant of excellent breeding. But lack of wits had never hurt a true British officer. Mainwaring was a civilian before the revolution and the exile of the better classes, and he had accepted a position in the army after the revolution.


    Lieutenant George Colthurst St Barleigh, mostly known as Lt. George

    “Well George, what did you want of me?”

    I have finished my report Colonel. First I wanted to write a report on doggies, but Mainwaring told me I should write on something more adult, and after refusing my more adult suggestion I chose to write on the world as it is today!!!

    Be assured sir, I have edited out most of George's more ‘eccentric’ ideas.


    Captain Mainwaring, Colonel Blimps trusted secretary

    “Well, just leave the report here George, I will read it later. You may leave gentlemen.”

    Before the Colonel lay a shoddily bundled set of papers titled ‘The world as it is today, by Lt. George Colthurst St Barleigh, age 30'. It seemed that young George had already mastered the ancient art of writing confusing reports. The Colonel still had some time before afternoon tea, so he decided to take a look at the report…

    ###############

    @ Praetonia, El Pip, TemplarComander, Sir Humphrey - Glad you like the concept .
    @ Thundergate - Thanks, just wanted to write something more completely different next to my ItaliAAR. I will continue writing that AAR too.

    Next time we will deal with George's Report to the Colonel, explaining the world of kaiserreich and Britains place among it...

    I think that basically all Prussian officers qualified as reallife Colonel Blimps.

    Again, I do my best .

    It seems that the Colonel and his friends are quite popular. Never expected so many reactions after just one update. Not complaining, ofcourse. Unfortunately I won't be able to post an update tonight. Instead I have a small collection of 'Colonel Blimp'-cartoons, on which this AAR is based. I hope to post a real update tomorrow.

    Your life is your life don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
    Be on the watch there are ways out.
    You can’t beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes.
    And the more often you learn to do it the more light there will be.
    Your life is your life.
    Know it while you have it.
    The gods wait to delight in you.

    I'm guessing this is mussleburgh since he's the only one who thinks I'm a fascist for some reason. In reality of course fascists were statist, un-British, anti-capitalist scum.
