USS North Carolina

I had the opportunity to visit the USS North Carolina down in Wilmington, NC just under 2 years ago on my 30th Birthday. It was a wonderful trip and I got to truly appreciate how big and powerful those ships were.

I have always loved battleships and its my goal to visit all 7 that are available to see in the USA. I also recently got to tour the USS Wisconsin which will be the topic of my next post.

Technical and operational history can be found here:

Just to give you an idea of how big these shells are, I stand 6 foot 5 inches.

I think its time for a new name and focus of this blog. It was originally meant to focus my Warhammer 40K hobby with the odd post about other stuff.

However since that time circumstances have changed. I have ended my love affair with 40K due to a few reasons. Mainly 6th edition if I have to be honest.

Over the last 2 years I have also been introduced to a whole range of new miniatures games which has really opened my eyes to what's out there. Great game systems and wonderful models.

My primary focus has now moved onto Flames of War which I find to be a wonderful game. With that, and the other games I play, I just don't think "Military of Ultramar" is appropriate any more. The focus now will be far more generic in scope with posts about any and everything that catches my fancy.

That being said I have no idea what to call it or what image to use as my banner so I am open to any suggestions. I am going to give myself a few days to think on it.

So this is notice to my few loyal followers.

Till next time.
