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.

Getting Squared Away


Well, I just accidently over wrote the blog post I stayed up last night to finish. Luckily there was nothing important because I'm not going to rewrite it! (Bloody tablet with its small blodfy screen and tiny buttons and my fat fingers and blurry eyes! )

British infantry deployed as 3 game units representing 100 to 300 men each depending on the scenario rather than as 1 multisquare battalion or 3 x 400 men battalions

The important point was that I have finally gotten back to my plan to turn the War of 1812 back into a Square Brigadier campaign capable of being played on my main table or on my  cardtable grid, including out on the patio table.

Crysler’s Farm mock up.
A draft Square Brigadier in the War of 1812 has been written and as soon as I cut some more bases and get everything glued down flocked and painted, I'll give it a go. I need a bit more editing on the rules but they should be posted by tomorrow. No innovations but more focused.


  1. Will there be different basing for the troops of the Northern native Kingdom ?

    1. The basing will be the same. The unanswered question is will it be a 1 base = 1 unit,Square Brigadier game on a grid or 2-4 base Hearts of Tin nongridded game. Will see how this goes first.

  2. Those Yankees don't look too bad - that blue and white painted up well.
