But I'm keeping all those Spaniards I have. I have too many French though, And not enough Brits. Hmmm.  Maybe a trade would be in order with somebody.

Howdy,

 

 I hope you are staying safe and healthy!

 

My name is Matt, and I am a gaming enthusiast (who is also a writer and voice over artist) and I wanted to share with you some original narrative scenario content for RPGs and Tabletop Wargames via Youtube videos.

 

I don’t’ do battle reports, reviews, unboxings, painting, etc.  I’ll leave that up to the pros, as there are so many of those already.  My content is designed to augment a player’s own game by adding story and background for games like D&D and 40K, etc..

 

And just to give you a sense of what you can expect…

 

Here is an Orc War Chieftain giving a speech to fire-up his warriors (good for Age of Sigmar and the like):

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7uIRn7hHmw&t=4s

 

Here is an encounter with a Red Dragon for games like D&D and Pathfinder:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WK9WqFOebQ

 

Here is the first in a two-part Star Wars rpg scenario featuring Rebel Heroes vs a Galactic Crime Lord:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coEzRTDnyWM

 

Here is the first of a two-part satirical ‘podcast’ about teenage Warhammer enthusiasts:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNJSJqiOeDY&t=272s

 

And finally, here is the overall Home Page:

 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrIzofyiBddUt9_WubMfpzQ

 

There are a lot of narrative scenarios for RPGs and Tabletop Wargames.  And my aim is to put out a new video every couple of weeks. 

 

I’m trying to create awareness, so please feel free to forward the channel or any of the individual video links to anyone you feel might be interested or get a kick out of them.

 

Have a good day and please be safe out there!

 

Matt

I will start painting my 28mm AWI in a week or two when I am done with my El cid Spanish. They are mostly Perry and Foundry with a few Front Rank
I have around 1000 continentals and 1000 British to paint !!! And then I have the hessians and French to paint. Enough to do any battles at 1:20 and smaller ones at 1:10

I am looking at 4 rulesets now that I have. Rise and Fight again (newer one), black powder, British grenadiers and Regimental fire and fury for AWI. Any comments welcome on those rules. I might try all of them in my room in solo and then put the same game with two sets so we can judge. 

Which ones have you played?

Let the painting start !!!

I don’t have any AWI figures. So I will play that period with whatever rules the game master uses.

I have the rules, have played them and like them. I just finished 1/Czartoryski (48 28mm) for 1805/09 and three squads of the 14th Chevaux Legere. For no clear reason other than I bought them a while back, I’ve started on Polish winged hussars. Also have MacKay’s Scots for TYW and Prussians for WSS under way. Time weighs but we have enough wine to get through.

I’ll flock the bases tomorrow. 

I've also been reading through the “General de Brigade” rules. I like them. They seem to be easy to learn and they appear to have most of the Napoleonic “feel” that I like.  And my basing works fine !

I played around with ESR a little bit, and found it feels more like an operational level game. The 900 yard max range on artillery is a little silly. Battles like Möckern in the 1813 campaign guide play real well, where there's A LOT of room for maneuver. Battles where the armies are already deployed like Borodino or Shewardino in the 1813 guide are slow as hell, and rawther dull.
 
If you like Zucker's OSG games, ESR is a similar fit.

Played ESR with the author at Historicon. 

Hated it. 

I thought it might be good when I was reading through it but the actual game was awful.
