New Colonial wargames rules available to download

I have uploaded the Colonial version of my PORTABLE WARGAME rules (in PDF format) to THE PORTABLE WARGAME website so that any interested blog reader can download them and possibly use them.

This draft uses the same basic game mechanisms as the earlier 'Musket' version of the rules, but I have added some extra weapon types (e.g. Magazine Rifles, Machine Guns) as well as including an option for Native Infantry and Cavalry Units to make double-length moves if their Commander achieves the right score on a D6 die.

The rules are still very much a 'work in progress', and may be subject to change as and when they are play-tested ... which will hopefully be quite soon.

Colonial Wargaming website: Updated ... at long last!

After over a year of inactivity I have finally managed to update my Colonial Wargaming website.

Most of the updates are to the Books pages of the Inspiration section of the website, but over the coming months I hope expand various sections and to extend the scope of the website to include some of the non-colonial conflicts that took place between 1850 and 1920.
