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.

I think I'll call it....a Wheel!

This morning's 1st prototype w magnetic base
For those of us pondering more elegant ways to mark hits, Steve Gill has found a company that offers exactly one of the things  I was trying to figure out how to make.

Just scroll down to see "casualty marker" in 2 formats, 1 with a figure added as an example. I might use drummers instead of dead guys, after all, the massed drums normally formed up behind their battalion, so a better use for them than being squeezed into the ranks.

Litko appears to have something similar in plastic.

and I imagine other companies probably offer similar products. or I could keeping working on inventing one.

Hunh! How about that.

  1. Ross Mac,

    I have pondered whether or not to use these single figure bases PLUS sabot unit bases ... and I am seriously inclined towards doing so.

    All the best,

    Bob

  2. Bob, it works for some people. I know some who swear by it.

    Just didn't work for me. It felt like the worst of both worlds rather than the best.

  3. A wheel you say - about time someone invented one of those.
