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.

It happens

The rebels ordered a gatling gun from Armies in Plastic some time ago so I painted it for today's game. I didn't have time to paint up a new crew for it before the game so I reassigned some gunners.
It was probably inevitable that it first shot was a jam.

Full report tomorrow.


  1. Them new fangled weapons, can't trust any if them!

  2. Ah - the New Unit Effect - also, throughout history, how many units have been finished off at 3am to get them ready for the following day's battle, only to be carried off by the first volley or - maybe even worse - to sit on the fringes all day while the visiting general ignores them? Did Alexander the Great do his own varnishing?

  3. Newly painted figures NEVER perform well do they !.

  4. Well it's a fine piece, even if a little unreliable.
