Running a sister site

A while ago I setup a web page using the free version of the Simdif App. It gives a seven page site and allows the site to fully be managed in every respect from a tablet.

Liking everything about the app, I recently upgraded to the 'paid for' service, which gives greater capacity and flexibility. In some regards, a website allows me to organise my material in a more structured and accessible way than the blog, so I will be running the two side by side for a while to see how things go.

Please visit and bookmark for a future return just to see how things are moving on.

Yartzevo Defiant - Video Trailer

I have recently been putting together a mini-campaign as a supplement to my Tigers at Minsk rules, which will shortly be available as a free download.

I have been playing around with some video trailer software resulting in this fun clip to promote the campaign module in Hollywood style. Please put your speakers on. The video only lasts 90 seconds. I hope you enjoy the results.

Playtesting a WWII campaign

I am presently working on a campaign module to compliment my Tigers at Minsk rules. The module is going through a second playtest and the 7th battle in the campaign is being played out today.

This post covers the AAR of this battle and discusses some design aspects behind the mini-campaign module. Please press 'read more' for the rest of this post.

Orchard and Wall for 10mm

For some time I have not been too happy with my representation of orchards on the table. The WWII tactical campaign that I am playtesting uses orchards and also needs some walls, which has highlighted the need for some remodelling.

For whatever reason, there seems to be a lack of commercially available walls for the 10mm gamer. So last weekend I set to work on both orchards and walls and designed them around maximum flexibility so that they worked harder for their home in our precious available storage space.
