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.
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.
