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.

On the menu

I'm off to a 2 day course for Museum volunteers being held in Hubbards on the Atlantic coast. By happy circumstance, Rob Hingley (Captain's Blog)  is on vacation at a nearby beachside cottage.

The same cottage where I spent a delightful two days last year, socializing and wargaming. Last year we played a 1/72nd ACW game.

and some Portable Russian Civil War games.

This year, we are extending the civil war theme and going to old metal with Paul's Minifig ECW collection with a few of my Scots volunteers.

A game with Paul's figures last fall.

but there may be some other games as well, the available options including but not limited to an Elastolin Romans vs Barbarians game.

Hmm, maybe I should turn the planned game into a Roman Civil War.....

Back in a few days.


  1. A wonderful combination of place, people, and interests--and season. Autumn getaways, especially when you can wrap hobby into them, are the best, I think. Looking forward to a few game pix (if you aren't too distracted).

  2. Ross Mac,

    Have a great time on your course and fighting wargames with your old friend.

    All the best,


  3. Our local museum is calling for volunteers - I keep thinking about it but so many other things...

  4. Have a great time Ross and l await the forthcoming battle report with interest.

  5. We haven't had the best of weather, but the sun is up and shining this morning.
