A Cambronne Christmas

May your holidays be filled with peace, good company, and childlike joy!

"It is for you, dear reader, now to get a floor, a friend, some soldiers and some guns, and show your appreciation of this beautiful gift of a limitless game. How much better is this amiable miniature than the Real Thing! Here is the thrill of victory and disaster – and no smashed nor sanguinary bodies, no shattered fine buildings nor devastated country sides that we know to be the reality of belligerence. You have only to play at Little Wars to realize what a blundering thing Great War must be."

 – H. G. Wells, Little Wars

  1. And the best part is, every battle, all the little metal fellows come back to life, safe and sound, to try it all again.
    A blessed Christmas to you and yours, I hope all 12 days are wonderful. Looking forward to more posts on your project in 2016. I'm starting to get into the pike and shot / horse and musket era, so have been doing design theory on the turn sequence, and other items. Drop by and check out the latest articles, a basic set of musket rules is coming soon.

    1. That sounds excellent -- I will indeed stop by your blog to check those out!
