First off, I ordered the Kindle version of The Wargaming Compendium by Henry Hyde. It think it is about $40 hard cover. I didn't really feel like paying that much, so I got the Kindle version. It is well worth the money. It is an excellent book, particularly if you are starting out. I really enjoyed his style of writing. It was relaxed, almost conversational. If I were starting out, I would seriously invest in the paper version. Only two criticisms. His history of wargames is good, but based on other other history of wargames articles, I think there were some things he left out. Second, the book just ends abruptly. I might have missed it, but I would have liked a conclusion.
Second set of purchases were some modern air rules. The first one is Bandits! 2 by David Redpath.

The other rule set is Flames Above the Falklands, which is part of the Wings At War series produced by Tumbling Dice miniatures.
|Flames Above the Falklands.|
Are you still with me? I'm not done yet!
Next, I ordered two pdf rules. First, Modern Naval Conflicts by Naval Warfare Simulations.
I had never heard of this company/organization, but they were having a sale on these rules, so I couldn't pass it up. I got the main rules along with the 1980s expansion, which covers the Falklands War. I have not had a chance to read them in detail, but they seem on the order of Harpoon in complexity.
Next, is 5150: Star Navy by 2 Hour Games.
The last book I got was The Solo Wargaming Guide by William Silvester.
Last, but not least, some fire power for LEGO minifigures:
