Meandering through the world of wargames!

This is an occasional blog where I will share what I have been up to as an occasional wargamer as I desperately try to stay focused on a few periods and rules and not succumb to all those distractions.

As at March 2015, my main interests are:

  • Ancients with DBA 3.0
  • Dark Ages with Dux Bellorum
  • Medieval with Lion Rampant
  • 19th Century with Neil Thomas’ rules

… and in the course of being drawn into Chain of Command, probably for Spanish Civil War!

… oh no – and I have just discovered the excellent To the Strongest by Simon Miller!

  1. Dear Simon,

    I really liked the look of the Nicopolis 1396 Big Battle DBA game you played back in November 2015.

    I highly recommend the booklet Bob Black wrote for the Lance & Longbow Society on Janos Hunyadi. It includes a good selection of Hungarian banners for reproduction and use with wargames figures.

    Now for a really mundane question:

    I really liked the look of the terrain cloth you used for Nicopolis: It had a good texture and was exactly the kind of light green shade that I’ve been looking for use in Balkan and Mediterranean settings.

    Please would you tell me where you got it from?

    Best wishes,

    Daniel Bamford.


    1. Daniel,

      Thank you for your encouraging comments. I actually got he cloth from a drapers in Wales. It is a fleece material and was only about £8.00 for 2 x 1 metres. It might be worth you trying other cloth shops for something similar.
