    I took a slice of action from the boardgame Salem Church by Decision Games and played it out as a Black Powder game on just a 3′ x 3′ space.

    There is a full article over on my blog. All-in-all, it gave a very enjoyable and quite tight game.

    That looks like an excellent time. Great idea using the situation from your boardgame as a miniatures scenario. I’ve played Battle Hymn a few times (their dual Pea Ridge/Gettysburg pack) and it has also had plenty of interesting situations that I should have recorded as scenarios.

    Thanks, it gave a really enjoyable game. I happen to have Battle Hymn, but have also bought into the Blind Swords system by Revolution Games. Both are series games, so I would like to stick with just one of them as a ‘go to’ system, but I am not sure which one yet.

    I don’t think I would have ‘invented’ a scenario of this particular nature, but it falling naturally from a game gave both the framework and the believability of the situation.

    It’s also a great way to highlight the ‘cross-over’ aspect of figure / boardgaming.

    I am getting into Sengoku-era Japan (massed samurai and ashigaru, oh my!) and your post inspired me to go bid on a mint copy of GMT’s Samurai board game, with the idea that I can take snapshots of interesting hex-game situations to translate into miniatures games later.
