Apologies for the recent lack of posts, I’ve been slowly insulating the converted garage so it can be used as a year round gaming room. It is taking longer than I’d planned due to the recent inclement weather forcing me to move everything around inside the garage as I do each wall! Anyway 75% completed means I can start to find a little time for the hobby.
Following on from what I think is the final sell off of figures terrain etc. I have used some of the money to invest in some board games - I am finding that my interest in board games has grown. I used to play a lot of games and have kept a number that I felt make good campaign systems for figures. However production quality has improved dramatically and offer a great opportunity to try battles or campaigns I haven’t time to collect figures for.
Jacobite rising is the third addition to the Command and Colours ‘Tricorne’ series and is one I couldn’t avoid given my interest in the period. I find the series hugely enjoyable even if the O.O.B’s can be a little inaccurate at times but nothing that isn’t easily addressed.
Flying Colours by GMT is designed for actions in the age of sail, the series has received a lot of positive reports and the rules do not seem overly complex, with 300+ named ship counters in the box it is an opportunity to indulge in some fleet actions on the table top.
Finally This War Without an Enemy by NUTS was a kickstarter game and covers the English Civil War it looks extremely interesting and includes both campaign and battle but I think would be excellent for a campaign system to generate figure battles.
Just in case you thought I’d given up on figures - another 2 units of Prussian flats are under way and I managed to paint up some of the latest releases from my FIW range.
