Battles of the Week, 24 April 2016

Batreps/AARs I enjoyed this week:

French and Indian War over at Big Lee's Place - Battle of the Week!  Great looking attack on a British outpost.

One Page 40k at Forkusprimordus - after giving up on the latest edition of the WH40k rules, a foray into the One Page 40k rules.  Gameplay didn't suffer, oddly enough.

Pulp Battlesworn at Stronghold Rebuilt, Fu Manchus Halls of Horror - Great mashup of old minis, old GW maps, and a new-ish game.  Scenario is posted separately here.

Frostgrave at Wee Blokes - Neat scenario of a treasure hunt (it is Frostgrave, after all) with the possibility of an angry Genie popping up to attack players' warbands.  If you haven't checked out this blog yet, do so.  I aspire to having so many cool campaigns posted, and hope to build my site up to something like this.

Flames of War D-Day Game at sediment's wargame blog - massive battle

Batrep/Review of Hail Caesar at Campaigns in Miniature - relatively negative review of Hail Caesar from a fan of the Ancients combined with a batrep of phalanxes clashing.  Worth reading if you are interested in the game.

GASLIGHT at Baron Von J's - good looking showdown between British and German forces.

Battlegroup Blitzkrieg at This War Without an Enemy - neat little WW II game

Other stuff:

Battlezone 1998 Redux at Delta Vector - Not a batrep, but if you enjoy more than one game and like to think about game design, go there and start reading the archives.  Join the Google Group.  Very intelligent thoughts collect at the website and the Group on homebrew rule sets and how to make games that make players make decisions.  Very cool.
