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.

Meanwhile on a Table top in Atlantica

I still have some detailing, drybrushing and touchups of various sorts to do over the next few weeks but its time for a test game. Atlantica c 1830, or maybe the Eastern Townships of Quebec, near the US border.


4 inch grid on 4x5 table. First pass at painting.Detailing to follow.


More ere long.

    1. Thanks Bob, this had been where I was headed with the temporary test table and I'm happy to be here. Sort of a cross of traditional table with a grid and a hint of modern printed mat.

  2. I'm struggling to work out exactly why - but that set up is wonderfully evocative of North America. I'm not sure why - the snake fencing?

    Well done either way.

    1. Thanks, I'm not really sure either but its not accidental. The fencing is part of it but I think the painted wooden clapboard houses are also part of it.

    1. I hope it seems as wonderful when the battle is lost and won.

  4. Looking good, Ross. I keep reading but for health reasons I seldom comment.

  6. Looks fine, Ross - just waiting for some brisk action. I agree with Conrad: it does have a vaguely North American frontier look. Perhaps that is why your battle pictures are so evocative of time and place.

  7. That table has seen a lot of paint!
    I had an old apartment once, and was told that the walls were painted with load bearing paint.
    But it was in a nice area.
    Nice looking table!
