Nothing better for waffles.
I haven't been spending much time or mental energy on Ancients but did momentarily decide late in the summer that I had been right originally and maybe OS with big units on a big table with no grid was better than the way I had been heading towards 1 base units. No games followed this thought.
I did try to get something going last weekend but ended up working on a small board with square grid for playing games down in the family room during the winter instead. Now of course I want an ancient or medieval game for the new, small, gridded board. Looking at my incomplete revised medieval armies and the still incomplete Iranian armies, I am reminded just how little painting I seem to do these days. This in turn reminds me how much fun I've had this year playing small games at Ron's. All of a sudden the big Ancient game starts to feel more nostalgic than realistic goal for the short term.
A Scots army at about 75% of full strength. The other 300% are still on their old bases.
There is too much non-gaming stuff going on for this to be a good time for sudden drastic action and or for a rewrite but luckily I kept the rules as grid-friendly as I could so no more than an appendix giving rules for moving on a square grid and translating multiples of 4" into areas. Then, maybe as early as tomorrow I will put some medieval's on the new board and see how it goes.
The Scots in action earlier this year.
