Edgehill 1642

Well its been a very long time since the last post. This has been due to lots of other life pressure. We are currently refighting Edgehill 1642. The number of moves is limited to 15 and we are at 9. I am Parliament HUZZAH!!!! Come on Essex!!!! Keith is the Man of Blood Charles commanding the malignant hoards of Royalists. Obviously I am not in anyway biased. So far Ye Kinge has swept away the Parliament cavalry on the right flank with some nifty dragoon action. However Prince Ruprecht was mortally wounded by a small cannon firing rusty nails so its not all bad. In the center Essex has advanced on mass and the Malignant despot seems caught like a rabbit in the coach lamps and is not moving but waiting for the righteous Parliament hoards to descend. All very exciting but I fear that its going to be a very long war. More to follow

A World Aflame

Fame at last!!!! The original concept for these came about when I agreed to write a quick set for the first Gentlemans Wargames Parlour BCW game a couple of years ago. The rules were greeted with some enthusiasm and then Osprey asked me if they could publish them. Having been asked I decided on a complete re write and the soon to be published rules are the result. Many of the original concepts remain although a huge amount has been changed. Hopefully they will be well received although I think thay are worth buying simply for the cover art work which is fantastic as far as I am concerned.

And some more...........

Normandy battle continues.

Well long time no post. Both work in our proper jobs as well as Empress have kept us both busy so no posting. We finished our experimental 'campaign' game though which proved to be pretty accurate in style with the Brits using lots of heavy arty to knock out the German tanks until their defense collapsed. Excellent fun and we are currently planning on another big D Day game soon. At the moment we have started on an Impetus Renaissance game for a slight change of direction. Anyway here are some pictures of the KG Normandy game.
