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.

Brioche: Technical Details

This game was based on One Hour Wargames Scenario 15 Fortified Defence. Red has 15 turns to capture both fortified "towns".

Forces are roughly equal but Red has the option to reset once per game. When he does he clears off  all of his and his whole force appears on the board edge again to try to finish the game.

Black had 12 Native riflemen (dismounted Irregular Cavalry mostly) with 2 Leaders.

Red had a General, 1 cavalry, 1 sharpshooter, 6 infantry, 1 fieldgun.

The rules were the Tin Army

Report to follow.

    1. The Indians are vintage Britain's though the last post contained a homecast variant based on a broken figure.

  2. Seeing this l am inspired//cajoled/encouraged/self-nagged to get my 40mm semi flats ready for the table!
    Really looking forward to the forthcoming report.

  3. Like your idea of using 'One Hour Wargames' for scenarios .

    1. Initially I was unimpressed that so many were cut down versions of others' full scenarios but eventually I "got it".

  4. I must admit that your big toy soldier games are visually very appealing and have me looking at those 30+ year old Prince August moulds in the attic with a certain nostalgia!
