As this website and blog goes forward, I’d like to see it grow and evolve. To that end I have put together some subjects I’d like to get in to and the reasoning behind my decisions.
Areas I’d like to cover:
Games I’d like to feature:
This list will undoubtedly grow as more and more games are released every day now and I still struggle to wade through what is already available and I dig through my Kickstarter ‘mound of shame’. For now, here’s a list (in no real order) of what I know I have on the back burner just waiting for me to either finish building, painting or using (and photographing) on the tabletop:
Oh, and no, I don’t play wargames. Not since I was a kid in high school and fell afoul of historical Napoleonic wargaming.
Anything above a squad of 12 to 15 men just isn’t for me. I can’t seem to care enough about what happens to hordes of nameless troops to get any real sense of enjoyment out of spending what is almost always many, many hours of ‘you-go, I-go’ back and forth drudgery. I’d much rather have the game over and done in a couple of hours of focused gameplay where it matters to me exactly what happens to who, and at the end of it I feel as if I’ve accomplished something meaningful.
That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate what goes on to a wargaming table - a lot of the folks I follow online are dedicated battlemeisters and I’m more than happy to ogle their stuff and steal their ideas for use on my tables. I encourage everyone to do the same - go look at what other folks are doing and ask yourself if any of it would work on your own tabletop. That’s why I think that any wargamers out there could still get some use from the stuff on these pages - just multiply the amounts or scale up/down accordingly to match whatever your preferred rule system requires.
