A bit of (wargaming) detective workPosted: March 7, 2016
I have watched that episode many times, and a quick look at the scene of the programme where Heathcote Land and Callan meet at a wargame competition refreshed my memory; …
… the rules were the Napoleonic ones from John Tunstill’s book DISCOVERING WARGAMES.
This really wasn’t much of a surprise as his magazine – MINIATURE WARFARE – was featured in an earlier scene and both players were using order sheets and average dice. A still publicity photo for the episode was even featured on the cover of the magazine at about the time the episode was first shown on TV.
A neat bit of wargaming detective work on my part, even though I say it myself!
