War of 1812 Figures On the Way!

Just received news that my new figures for the War of 1812 skirmish scenarios are on the way! They were shipped back to me yesterday and I hope to have them within 3-4 weeks. I have seen photos of the figures as they were painted and they came out very well. I had about 120 figures painted which will give me a good set of units to chose from for different skirmish scenarios. I will post pictures of the figures as soon as they arrive.

The 2012 Plan

Well, here comes the 200th anniversary year of the War of 1812 in North America. I have been and painting Wo1812 figures for many years. I haven't counted them lately, but I think I have around 300!

The "Plan" for 2012 is to have several game night games and then a blowout game day next fall. I would like to use all of my units on that game day. I also am going to do a game or two of Brother Against Brother adapted for the War of 1812.

I have two scenarios set for the game nights. The first is Queenstown Heights and the other is Lundy's Lane. I want to do a couple more playtests of each game before I host the game night games.

I will keep you updated.

Wargaming the War of 1812

I started this blog over a year and a half ago, then I had some family issues and dropped off the face of the earth for awhile. Now I am back and the War of 1812 is coming up on its 200th anniversary. In celebration of this milestone, I will be hosting several games in the next year. The games will use the Volley & Bayonet game system in Wing Scale and a set of rules called Brother Against Brother modified for the American War of Independence and War of 1812.
