|Highlanders prepare to defend the farmhouse.|
Well after swearing black and blue I wouldn't ever have a blog this is now my second in a matter of months! The first was my own small effort to pay homage to the wonderful Sudan Rules of Peter Gilder, made famous in Wargames Illustrated those many years ago.
However this blog is an attempt to capture the rest of my wargaming projects, adventures..dare I say misadventures at times!...with my friends and colleagues at the NWS as well as gaming upstairs at home. There will be all manner of posts here - my first love Napoleonics will certainly feature prominently however Ancients, Renaissance, Modern, fantasy will also appear on a regular basis. I have always been a huge fan of the larger "In the Grand Manner" style of games however as I grow older the appeal of skirmish games which require a minimum of preparation and a multitude of fun are becoming increasingly attractive so be prepared for some Saga, Muskets and Tomahawks as well as the fantastic Sword and the Flame.
