The Wars of Wine & Cheese

Postby Frizzenspark » Mon Nov 19, 2012 11:16 pm

Odd non-gaming web searching has dropped this site into my lap.....
The Wars of Wine & Cheese
Image
http://princelupus.blogspot.com/

The site covers "Age of Reason Gaming" with articles as listed:
Ancient (1)
Colonial (3)
commentary (5)
imagiNation (12)
Napoleonic battles (7)
painting shed (11)
Portable wargame project (4)
Random (14)
Rules (5)
SDS (4)
SYW battle (3)
The American War (7)

There is promising mention of a game system in development:
"The Portable Wargame in the Age of Enlightenment"

Aims – a quick, preferably one hour, game on a small(ish) board with an C18 feel to recreate the actual battles of Frederick the Great. So one base = one regiment of foot possible one brigade of horse.


There are attractive images of well-painted miniatures......

I'll continue to look over the site......

Love the pics of this kind, more please and perhaps a thread somewhere on the forums for specific pics per era of miniatures like these?

Perhaps a masters gallery one with Napolionics, Civil war and any other conflicts we could game in at some point.

Cheers, kind of like my FoW ones, and I'm looking into an RPG type one for the general forum as well!!

THE PORTABLE WARGAME WEBSITE

There is good linkage to mindlessly simple battle gaming for horse and musket through modern warfare using grid or hex boards.....

A great idea.

Very cool.....like the name of the game, too. Great detail on the miniatures! I wasn't familiar with this series.
If you can't be a good example, be a horrible warning

There is a hex option for the "Portable Wargame" Many players use the ubiquitous Heroscape hexes......
