Posties Reject's scholar in residence, Richard, has been collecting 2mm miniatures for the French Wars of Religion since the beginning of the year. Painting two armies didn't take long and then he started work on creating a set of rules for the period. He unveiled them in the shed-o-war on Sunday for a play-test (or stress-test when the rejects are concerned!) to get our feedback and to work out any issues. Everyone involved loved the miniatures and enjoy the rules, but more importantly, Richard went home with a load of notes and things to consider for the next revision of the rules. I expect he will be posting more details on his blog My Wargaming Habit in due course so pop over and take a look there.
In the meantime here are a few teaser pictures from the weekend.
|Small but perfectly formed.|
|Nice neat lines... but not for long.|
|The green dice indicate Quality and the white dice Cohesion (which can go up or down during the game).|
|The figures may be tiny but the level of concentration and thought that went into this game was huge.|
Before anyone asks, I won't say much more about the rules at this point. They aren't mine to unveil and besides, they aren't ready yet so everything we tested on Sunday is still up for revision. I expect Richard has lots to ponder in the months ahead. What I can say is that everyone involved enjoyed this first sneak peek and are no doubt looking forward to the next iteration of the rules, as am I.
