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.

Its Quiet, too quiet!

Since the repulse of the Oerberg Expedition in August, the southern border of the Kapelle Territory has been uneasy.

The town called Missisjones is an important mining centre in the hills of southern Kapelle, not far from the border with Oerberg. A garrison has been left to hold the town and patrol the border. So far all has been quiet but no one believes that the quiet will last forever.
Meanwhile, in the surrounding hills........

  3. The train looks great. The ploughed fields are they just painted or do they have a textured effect to them? The other photo is filled with promises of excitement to come.

    1. They are just painted. In retrospect I should have painted them on separate bits of cloth so I could move or remove them when they are in an awkward place or inappropriate setting. Still, they aren't hard to hide when needed.

  4. Is this a raid...or is it the advance guard of a more substantial effort?

  5. Have to agree with the Gentlemen above, lovely to see a train and a fine looking game to come. Missisjones, great name - there's definitely a thing going on.
