Another week, another roundup of the week's best in battle reports.
First, I should note that I finally got around to playing a game and writing it up. Here's the first chapter in my new campaign, Modern Warfare: Alien Invasion. I've been searching for a rule set that can smoothly handle superheroes mixed in with hordes of henchmen, and not found what I'm looking for. So I'm writing my own set of rules, with a working title of Heroes, Heavies, and Hordes. Before I throw in superheroes, however, I'm going to ensure that it gets combat right. More reports to follow.
Battle of the Week: Big Lee wins the internet this week with a pirate treasure hunt skirmish game. Gorgeous board, good write-up. Would love to do something like this sometime.
Close runner up: Bridge of Kazad Dum at Into the Maelstrom, recreating the iconic battle from The Fellowship of the Ring.
Little Wars VA has a Team Yankee AAR up. I remember reading both the novel and the comic book back in the day.
Some Napoleonics up at Sound Officers Call! I've never fallen in love with this genre, but have seen some amazing day-long games recreating Jena and Waterloo.
Kaptain Kobold takes his 40k on the road, which looks like a very relaxing time. And some WW II Chain of Command, with a good-looking board and minis.
Battlegroup Overlord at This War Without an Enemy. Glad to see someone else digs 20mm/1-72 scale.
And, it wouldn't be a week without a bit of Frostgrave, this time from The Miniatures Man. I've never played the game, but it does produce a lot of great batreps.
