Well, I tried. I started with my old French units which had never been mounted on washers. Soon each 20 figure unit had been reduced to 12 figures with the stragglers mingling in search of new partners with which to form new battalions.
It was a rather sad sight really, more than 15 years of tradition banished by the heartless economies of officials.
Just an old softie, that's me.
They won't fit properly on the grid but I'll still have room for some new units, conversion back to Charge! will be easier should I ever need it, and I have been contemplating dropping down to a 4'x4' everyday table with an extension to 4'x8' anyway.
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.
