And I thought I world post a review of a wargaming book....
"The Wargaming Compendium" by Henry Hyde. First off, this is a hardcover book with lots of art and great photos. It covers wargaming from where we started to where we might be going. Also how to pick-a-period (Ancient, Dark Ages, etc) to wargame, painting figures, figure scales (i.e.10mm, 15mm, etc) and much more. 3 rule sets are included, a gladiatorial game, The Wild West and a Pike & Shotte set. A lot is stuffed into this book (including a Resources Chapter) and IMHO is well worth the money! So take a look at "The Wargaming Compendium", you'll be happy you did!
And as for my gaming, I am going to do some play testing in order to run a old scenario, The Bridge at Khazad Dum using Lord of the Rings SBG, at the next gaming con in September. I have a card board mock-up to use right now and if things go well, I'll be making a gaming board for it.
