Just after I’d finished my latest batch of Persians, Johan came over to my house for some ancients action. We used the Hail Caesar rules, and pitched the freshly raised Persians against my Greek veterans in an imaginary battle during the Greco-Persian Wars. Not only was it satisfying to bring my new 6mm lads to… Continue reading Just played… Hail Caesar
A couple of days ago Johan came over to my house for a few beers and a game of To the Strongest! I had recently finished a couple of additions to my 6mm Greek army that I was keen on getting to the table, so we played a Peloponnesian War scenario: the battle of Stratus in… Continue reading Just played… To the Strongest!

But I’ve still managed to sneak in a bit of nerdiness here and there, in spite of an overall focus on combining full time work with diaper changing, sleepless nights and the general joy and exhaustion… Continue reading Project log: Really small civilians

Thus I had a rather open-minded approach to this very… Continue reading Just played… To the Strongest!

With these latest additions, the ranks are sufficiently fleshed out to allow both for quite sizable Greeks vs Greeks battles during most of the Classical period, and for future major clashes with Persians or so-called Barbarians, for example. First off, I did some extra units of… Continue reading Project log: Really small Greeks, part III
A little while back, me and Jonas met up at club for a test game of Sword & Spear, using my 6mm Greeks. Last time I played it it became apparent that the system isn’t really designed with too complex scenarios in mind, so this time we went for a more traditional approach: a straight… Continue reading Just played: Sword & Spear
