Mad for War tutorial - Single ship combat video


Brederode versus James 1652

I have been working furiously on preparing a whoe series of Mad for War support materials including tutorial videos dealing with all of the main aspects of the rules in short 3-6 minute bites. These will begin appearing on the League of Augsburg YouTube channel soon. In advance of that, I have completed a slightly longer walk through battle report as a video.

It's here! Christmas came a little early..


Despite Brexit, Covid 19, National lockdown and a snap snowfall in Scotland - A one tonne pallet arrived from Lithuania via Thames Gateway and I unloaded it this morning.

A Taste of Victory! will ship to pre order customers on Monday and Tuesday next week which is 10 days earlier than I had anticipated. Hurrah!



I am happy that this project got from drawing board to market quicker than any I have...

With Talon and Claw released in pdf format

PREORDER NOW OPEN: A Taste of Victory



 All systems appear GO! I am expecting delivery of Taste of Victory! in the third week of December so am gearing up for the pre order. Delivery will be as soon as possible after that pending the usual Christmas postal challenges.

Kinsale scenario on a 4PlayX table

Exactly a year ago I was sitting in a very quiet part of Mallorca planning the next book. It'll be quick I told myself. Six months maybe. Well, it is just about ready and it took a year. It would have been sooner but Lockdown affected the layout process. That's all done now. It is a 128 page scenario book for Beneath the Lily Banners and is called 'A taste of...

Danish Grenadier Corps, 1710

Clarence Harrison - It's been a while since I've painted any Warfare Miniatures. I've been wanting to wander into the tricorn era of the period for some time, but there's always been 'just one more' project in the queue. Well, I finally decided to make a start of it!

While the Russians or Swedes are the obvious choice, the Danish army has always been a favorite of mine. My usual process when...

4Play quo vadis?



Firstly,  a big thank you to those who have bought some 4Play scenarios. They got off to a good start and I am happy with the response. Of course, the rub will be the play feedback but on format and content, they seem to have hit the mark.

With the first releases I wanted to try and avoid the common trap of re-hashing what is already out there in some form or another. By focusing on different...

Every bullet...



I was keeping my head down and quietly getting on with this but now it is out there I guess it's OK to mention it here.

I am working on a book for Helion which is a guide to wargaming the period from the 2nd Anglo Dutch War through to the Nine Years War. It is not a beginner's guide. It is an enthusiast's guide. I have tried to distill 30 years of digging in this patch of earth into something which...

MIA? Ma - ma!




I may have appeared missing in action over the last few days... not so. I have been using every spare hour to set up, play and photograph small games for a series of pdfs I hope to release within the next 3-4 weeks. This has already involved nine x 90 minute games since Sunday last, with each of them having to be written up as a scenario, photographed and AAR completed. All are based on research I...

Marlborough's Danes




Yes, I know. How could Warfare have produced such an important component of the armies of the period without me getting my act together and at least letting everyone see what they look like in battalions?
An unforgivable omission but as always I will trot out my 'one man team' excuse. Well, that and Ottomans, Wagonburgs, wee ships, Cossacks and the like.




Anyway at last I have some units of Danes to...

With Talon and Claw

The reason? Eagles and lions with their talons and claws appear in almost all of the arms of the combatant nations of the Great Northern and Eastern Wars - Swedes, Danes, Saxons, Prussians, Poles, Imperialists and...
