The War of the Pacific: Another project!?

Why, oh why, did I write
'These forces are quite small, and it would not be beyond the wit or resources of most wargamers to recreate both sides' military might in miniature'
in yesterday's blog entry, especially as I subsequently discovered that OUTPOST WARGAME SERVICES actually produce a range of 15mm figures for the War.?

I have rules for both the land and sea battles (MEMOIR OF BATTLE and MEMOIR OF BATTLE AT SEA would be ideal) and a lot of data about the ships used by both sides. I also have the excellent uniform guide recently published by Caliver Books, so in theory there is nothing to stop me having a go ... except the cost.

That is something that I am going to have to think about ... but you never know, I might just find a way around that problem.

  1. Go on Bob - you know you want to! The way I justify expenditure on a new project is to have a clear out of some older stuff so that it becomes 'self financing' - well that is the theory anyway!

    All the best,

  2. David Crook,

    I am very tempted ... but I am looking at various ways in which I can keep the cost down (e.g. possibly using paper soldiers for the armies). I have done this before, and the results were more than acceptable ... and almost cost free.

    All the best,

    Bob
