Games

My 2020 focus is on three areas:


(1) The Rampant series of games...

...Lion Rampant, Dragon Rampant, The Pikeman's Lament, Rebels and Patriots and The Men Who Would Be Kings. I have armies for all these games (with more on the way) and have played them all before. They are easy, fun and playable in an evening.


(2) Tilly's Very Bad Day

This new set of Thirty Years War rules by Steven Thomas (Balagan) is under development. I have helped with proof-reading and want to start playing it ASAP. My armies are in the process of being painted but they are already based and can be tabled for games.



(3) Chain of Command

This is another new game and looks challenging. I have 28mm German and American forces for the Ardennes Campaign (based and undercoated) and some scenery. I need to get a few more figures. I'm currently at the stage of reading, studying and organising the forces. Next up will be trying out the mechanisms.


Games I'd like to return to or explore at a later date include:
  • Altar of Freedom
  • Bloody Big Battles!
  • Commands and Colors (various)
  • Corvus
  • Crossfire
  • Galleys and Galleons
  • Gruntz 15mm Sci-Fi
  • Hammerin' Iron
  • Irregular Wars
  • L’Art de la Guerre
  • Maurice
  • Red Actions
  • Square Bashing
