A wargaming update

Today I have been writing the rules for my “Bomber” game, based on Len Deighton’s eponymous book.  It’s all coming together nicely.  The game was first played as a post-Christmas fun game in Chris Scott’s gaming room.  I am now expanding it for a weekend at the Wargames Holiday Centre. The new version is much better than the early picture below.

I also spent a little time basing some 6mm artillery pieces for my domestic campaign game set in 1702.  For these games I normally use Irregular Miniatures blocks of 3 x 6 Infantry (a company or a battalion as required) and 1 x 4 cavalry (a troop or squadron).  But I find their field artillery pieces less than adequate, so I go to Heroics and Ros for the guns.  Irregular siege guns are much better than their field pieces.

As an aside Ian Kay of Irregular Miniatures was kind enough a few years back to sculpt for me a bunch of “early 18th century routing infantry” as a marker unit, based on his ACW-Modern period models.
