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.

My actual introduction to wargaming

I just stumbled across these scans of a Canadian Boy Scout Magazine from the late 60's or very early 70's.  There is a paragraph or 2 missing and unfortunately, the original is also missing, but this was my first real glimpse beyond playing with toy soldiers and collecting model soldiers into wargaming (not to mention home casting.)



  1. Heart warming stuff - I find the reflexive "They're not toys" amusing. They are toys of course and bedamned to anyone who naysays playing with them.

  2. Wargaming is a "serious business"? Now you tell me.

  3. Gentlemen, if you have ever seen those charging Britain's highlanders in person, you KNOW they mean Business!
