    I have been away from the forums for a while, TWW as well as all the others due to work and family commitments as well as the bad taste left in the mouth after too many frequent visits to a different wargaming forum which shall not be named. Anyway, be that as is may, I am back now, somewhat reinvigorated, and ready for a slew of updates, not all of which will be shamelessly self promoting… 

     

    I posted some time ago about the production of my 16-17th century naval game, Galleys & Galleons, published by Ganesha Games. I think at the time I posted we were still playtesting, but it was released in December last year and seems to have been quite popular in some circles. I know of at least two members here, David Manley and Frank Shandy who took part in the playtesting. For those interested, below are a number of links various AARs:

    Dawn as Sidi Bir Tee

    Chaos in the Cayos

    Ambush in the Lombok Channel

    It’s a Trap!

    Run for Port

    The Battle of Island Number Nine (Frank Shandy’s ACW mod)

     

    The popularity of the game has the publisher querying how long it would be before a fantasy supplement came out, and so sure enough, that is one of the projects that a dedicated group of playtesters and I have been plugging away at for the last six months (probably due out around Christmas). It takes the existing rules, set in the ‘Age of Discovery’ and allows for lace-pulp flying machines and monsters, as well as allowing for more traditionally fantastic engagements between dwarves, elves, undead and the like. They also expand on the original rules to give more depth to ancient games using the rules.

    Where to now? I have been expanding my own historic fleets to enable either better games, or just more options, as well as building up fleets of a more fantastic nature as required for playtesting. In due course (when painted – and I am a painfully slow painter) I hope to get them up here as some eye candy.

    Not a full blown official one, but I have been ‘advising’ a chap creating a raft of army lists for your traditional fantasy race tropes. So far he’s got about 20 army lists written and we have discussed the use of three new special rules. Everything else already works.

    Drop me a line through my blog page if you are interested in having a look at what he’s done to date.  http://irregularwars.blogspot.co.uk/

    Cheers Nic, I will! I’ve been contemplating a mini-campaign using both IW and G&G, fantasy setting, all of it in 6mm: IW does lend itself to mini-wars between competing wizards, dwarf lords and would-be high kings!
