Welcome!  O0

Any favorite games you've been playing recently?  Wargames or otherwise?
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

Been playing some miniature wargames - Black Powder, Blood & Plunder, and Blood & Valor. A bit of Oak & Iron. We have our own game in development, though won't be out until next year.

We also play board games and pencil & paper RPGs often. Just like playing games in general.

Just above Jacksonville in Yulee. I play at Borderlands in Jax often if you know where that is.

I've always liked the looks of Black Powder minis.  Can you tell us anything about your game yet, or is it still under the covers?  ;)

I played a few games of BP (Napoleonics and Crimean War) and then bought some Napoleonic era Russians from Perry. I just need to paint them now. So many and I am such a slow painter. :) BP is a nice system that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Our game is intended to be a multi-genre mass wargame. So one set of rules to multiple periods/genres - historical, fantasy, black powder, WWII, and sci fi. We were originally targeting 6 mm, though have since discarded that as we don't care about the mini scale.

We have free copies of the rules as they are undergoing development available in our facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/AgesofConflict

Welcome to the Grogs amichaell. It'll be great to have another Florida guy hanging-out here to take the pressure off me some. ----Whispered---- They're so jealous of us here. Shhh... O0
