I have completed my first working draft of D-Day to Berlin. It is 33 pages long. I also have OOB for US and German forces for 1944-45 NW Europe and the QRS.

The documents are in .pdf form.

As you can all understand I want to keep track of who has a copy and I only want to share with those of you who are really interested in the subject.

D-Day to Berlin WWII Corps Level Wargame

 

Panther battalion in D-Day to Berlin

Well I have been working on a new set of WWII XXX (corps) level rules for a few months now.  Besides running games with some friends I have done two game day events hosted by the MHWA as well as one at Huzzah and Havoc.  All were well received and helped me fine tune my ideas.

I have finally got a working QRS and Unit cards posted here on the D-Day to Berlin page.

I have the rules text maybe half way done, but most of the work right now goes into the QRS for play ability.  Thanks to Games Poet, David P., John M. and Art F. for their help and input.

Coastal History: Bath played large role in miniature gaming

Like many nerds of my generation, I played some Dungeons & Dragons during my junior high school years.

Sometimes it was an ancient DOS computer version, and sometimes I would head over to my buddy’s house to play with some other guys. I generally played a wizard named Fishlips, and sometimes the games would get tense. One session ended in a brawl in the front yard, where the guy who played the Cleric received the worst wedgie I have ever seen. I think the group fizzled out after that.

Maine Wargamer’s Game Day – December 8, 2018

 

DoB Battle of Legnano
German Infantry

Well I have rejoined the Maine Historical Wargamer’s Association – MHWA and after a long break from socialized gaming I have jumped back in with both feet.

I have applied to run 2 games.  I am hoping to be accepted as a game master but there are a lot of talented gamers out there.  The first is Legnano.

If I get my first choice it will be a Day of Battle game the tile of which is the Battle of “Legnano“.  This battle takes place min later medieval Italy.  It pitches a large for of German and mercenary knights heading on a road to jpin their main army.  The force is blocked by a highly motivated Italian City state militia army.

This will be run for up to 6 players in 28mm scale.

I have started to play test the scenario, here are a  few pictures.  I will post an after action report as another post.

Follow Me ! World War II Combat Wargame

 

day of battleI stumbled upon a review though small of Peter Rice’s “Follow Me” WWII skirmish rules.

If you gamed in the Maine 0 Southern NH area in the late 70’s you knew of these rules.

Peter later went on to buy “Behind Enemy Lines” from Fasa Corp and rewrote them using his Follow Me rules concepts.

Both games are excellent and can’t be beat for accuracy and fun.

day of battleHoly German Knights Batman! 

A belated but heartfelt thank you to my amazing brother David for his Holy German Knights.

How many games can say that actually got painted soldiers on their birthday?  Well I did.

David hired the talented Peter Rice from Chain of Command to paint these wonderful figures.  Then peter mailed them to me.

Peter’s painting is world renown for their amazing detail.  I highly recommend toy check him out.

Thank you David.
