Its a good time to be a miniature war gamer with lots of new subjects to delve into and the advent of affordable plastics means that we are all spoiled for choice. Not so good if you rely on mail order and it never seems to arrive-this has stalled my game plans for the Victorian game my son and I wanted to play...oh well.
I still want an easy playable game for my son and I so it is back to trusty (affordable) 20mm. An order placed yesterday should arrive this week for speed painting and a game within 7 days!, but this is only half of the plan. (This plan is so secret I have told myself only half of it!)
For around a decade (I feel so old) I have had an eastern front project in mind, the map is drawn and the campaign rules are written-I even have an old friend ready to deploy the forces so that my son and I can play out the games. Has anyone done anything similar to this? Advice, hints and tips would be useful. I have even considered a seperate blog to chart the progress and publish the mechanisms used to get games onto the table...maybe it will encourage others to give this a try?
Thanks for reading, keep blogging!
