No I am not dead or gone on my Swedish Vacation yet but I have been busy and life is getting in my way of my hobby again. Well I have been working on some 20mm Early war tanks and trucks for my Poland 39 Chain of Command games that I will be running at the club.
Last Tuesday night I was invited to the club to play a test game of Black Powder to help develop campaign rules. One player was the Russians and the rest of us played as the Swedish forces. We were each in command of one Battalion of Infantry. The commander of the Swedish forces did not have a unit except for the stand that represented him. He gave pre-game orders to each of us and if he wanted to change the order he would have to attach himself to the unit.
The concept is good, It will allow a few players to play a game and then have a way to connect the scenarios and develop there units. As you take objective and fight enemy units you gain paints which can be spent on improving your unit. We all got points and once Jesper and Soren work out the items we can purchase we will play again with the same units.
This is the first time I was able to use my Life Guards unit in a Great Norther War game. It was a good time.
For more details on the game please check out Jesper's site at The Miniature Mayhem
Thank you and have a great week.
WWII images are coming soon!
