It started with the 4Play pack #17 The Campbell's are coming! which begat the 4Play Mad for War pack #35 Ne Obliviscaris! dealing with the naval aspects of the Argyll Rebellion. Dave and Colin helped play through scenario #2 the historical encounter at Loch Ruel which developed into a full scale action rather than the chaotic abandonment of his ships that Argyll actually presided over.

|De Pointis breaks clear of Bahia de Gibraltar|
Inspired by a post on the Mad for War Facebook Group I created and played the Battle of Punta Cabrita(Marbella) March 10th 1705, within 24 hours of reading the historical background. A French squadron which had been attempting to recapture Gibraltar for the Bourbon cause is attacked as it withdraws from Bahia de Gibraltar, off Punta Cabrita which is...
In the spirit of optimism which Spring always brings I thought I would do a little special offer on A Taste of Victory!
The recent negative adjustment in postal rates and introduction of various random taxes by European countries on British goods have in truth, dented international buisness. Shipping prices to the US in particular are prohibitive and farcical.
Best way round that is to make things...
I promised to make some free collateral available for those interested in using ther Mad for War system of 17th century naval gaming. Here is the first free 4Play format scenario pack called Clear for action!
It has 28 pages, full colour throughout, three scenarios including Portuguese versus Dutch, Dutch versus English and Privateers versus French.
Obviously you need the Mad for War Essential guide...
Republic to Empire has quietly but steadily carved a little niche in the Napoleonic gaming canon over the years. It has continued to sell well both in digital and hard copy. We have neglected it solely due to lack of time capacity to cover and support everything else we produce. This first Republic to Empire video takes a step to redress that support gap.
This video takes a brief tour around...
|The hard fighting Danish contingent in action|
.....what happened to those Danish troops from the Dronningens and Oldenburgske regiments that did not make it to Ireland to fight against King James and win glory at The Boyne, Aughrim and Limerick?
|Danes in the Mourne Mountains|
King Christian V of Denmark appeared to be a lot of things. Headstrong, avaricious, possibly not very bright. When he...
|The Battle of Bear Bay, Spitsbergen 1693|
I have just completed the latest video which focuses on gaming with French privateers during the Nine Years War. Even if you are a landlubber this touches your interest as these corsairs captured hundreds of Danish troops bound for Ireland and many were pressed into service in the Royale Danois.
The video features one of the most unusual naval battles in...
For Post #1,001
I thought it would be nice to give our visitors an opportunity to pick up a little bargain if they are so inclined. The pdf uniform and scenario packs have proved to be very popular. The fact the the range continues to expand is testimony to that.
We now have 27 Uniform guides and 25 4Playpacks excluding the 2 FREE packs. The prices vary on these between £2 and £6 with most being in...
|Assurance versus Constant Reformation 1649|
I am very pleased to announce the release of the first 4Play scenario packs specifically designed for Mad for War. There are 16 packs which will be released over the next few weeks but the first batch of four is a nice cross section of some of the different conflicts of the late 17th century which will be covered by the series.
