Viewer's Choice Celebration MiniCampaign

It has now been over 20 years since I launched "With MacDuff On the Web" and nearly 10 years since I launched my 2 blogs: Gathering of Hosts and Battle game of the Month.

To celebrate the years and the friends and the million hits I've decided to run a 3 game mini-campaign in late October. By popular vot e it will be set in the mid 18th Century.

and to all a good Knight (preferably in a play set)



One of the best Christmas presents that I ever received as a child was a 25mm hard plastic, factory painted knights and vikings castle play set from Marx. The castle is a little battered, many of the knights have suffered battle damage and the attacking Vikings long ago embarked on their ships and sailed off
 ( I bought a box of Orion vikings a few years back because it contains smaller copies of the vikings )
 but it still brings a smile to my face.
Almost spent a silly amount of money to buy one that came up for sale a few years ago but opted to spend the money on 40mm Elastolin Prince Valiant figures instead. There is a slightly different version available from MTS but the one pictured above is exactly the one I had. Looks like a sortie has  the poor vikings surrounded!

May this Yule bring you all a smile and create warm memories for the future.

(See some bits of wargames scenery can be useful for all sorts of things)

  4. Merry Christmas! I had the unpainted 54mm version of the Marx knights and Vikings castle for Christmas one year when I was 5 or 6 ... One survivor of each side are part of my old toys collection.
