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 and I'm asking YOU to help choose the period. It has to be something from my current list but please comment on any post from Sep 12 till Oct 1 or email me : rmacfa@gmail.com . and to let me know your preference and any suggestions on the mini campaign.

The polls are now open!

UN Observers Ordered Out as Peace Talks Break Down

It has been nearly 2 years since hostilities between the Red Badge Rebels and the Ducal Army broke out and were swiftly halted but it seems the two sides were largely using the peace talks as a cover for their efforts to organize and prepare for war.

UN peacekeepers pass a Red Patch outpost on their way to the border.

Will last minute peace efforts have any effect or can we expect hostilities in the near future?

To avoid confusion with the Red Patch Brigade's Khaki Drab uniforms, the Ducal army has just adopted Olive Green uniforms and equipment.

  1. Ooo... Let's expect hostilities in the near future! (...and as far as the Anglophone West, and Russia, Iran or China are concerned, let's not! Like a lot of war gamers, I'm a peacenik at heart. Very worrying has the global situation become.)

    1. Somehow the 20 yr old me didn't think I'd live long enough for the environment, over population and the return of war and politics to threaten our continue existence. Couldn't picture a 60+ yr old me!

  2. Lots going on over the (wargaming) years. Personally, I've always been a believer in choosing a period and sticking with it.

    1. The plan was that to keep only what gets used at least once in 3 years and to cover all the major periods of warfare and various levels of game.
