Small is beautiful … and fun!Posted: February 17, 2014
This was further born out by the most recent battle report on the Wargame Hermit blog. This was the latest in a number of battles fought by the blog’s writer – jhnptrqn – as part of an ongoing campaign. All the battles have featured figures from the 15mm-scale Peter Laing ranges and Heroscape™ hexed terrain.
As far as I know, to date jhnptrqn‘s campaign has included the following battles:
He has also fought a number of fantasy battles using armies based on those that appear on the pages of the CONAN THE BARBARIAN and HYBORIA stories as well as a number of historical battles. These have also featured 15mm-scale Peter Laing figures and Heroscape™ hexed terrain.
I do like taking part in large wargames (e.g. MEGABLITZ), but I am now coming to the opinion that as I get older I don’t want the expense or effort of building, owning, and storing a small number of large armies, and that it would be better if I concentrated upon creating and using on a regular basis a larger number of small armies.
Furthermore, during the recent spring clean of my toy/wargames room, I re-discovered the storage boxes that contained the large collection of Heroscape™ terrain that I own … and it seems a great waste not to use it.
It has given me something for me to think about over the next few days
(I have been through similar thought processes before, but never reached a definite conclusion. Perhaps I will this time because its appeal is much greater now.)
