Part I - Army Training


2nd Jan 1936 - It´s me and Scrappy. I'd just woken up after a New Year's party and Scrappy scared the shit out of me. I should say that Scrappy belongs to Carl's pub and he probably brought me home that night..

PS: and it is not the worst thing that happened...


4th Jan 1936 - ...because during my 30 hours blackout, I volunteered for the newly established Australian Imperial Army. The picture shows me and drill sergeant MacCraigh.


7th Mar 1936 - Night movement exercise. 20 miles with full pack.


2nd Apr 1936 - Training Completion Celebration. Abel Company, 1st Battalion of the 2nd Regiment of Australian Rifles has new corporal - me, cpl. Henry Michael Stanley Wolfhound.

some things I want to say about this AAR:

I am playing CORE 0.82, very hard/furious
My postcAARds will follow the course of the game, but I am not going to stick to the facts only ;)

I am not trying to offend anyone with my drawings, please remember it :rofl:

Your pictures are fantastic! How long do you take to draw them on average?

thanks ;)

10-30 minutes to do hand drawings...
then it takes some time to scan the images ;)
and another 15-30 minutes to clean and color the scans, apply effects, make background etc...

but it is just rough guess... in fact I don´t have a clue ;)

in general it takes more time to think up something than to draw it :)
