Other people's Portable Wargame battle reports: Seven Years War

Ross Macfarlane and his friend Ron have been at it again. This time they have been using an adapted version of the Ancient rules from DEVELOPING THE PORTABLE WARGAME to fight a Seven Years War battle!



The battle report makes for interesting reading, and has given me several ideas regarding the possibility of writing a Seven Years War version of my own NAPOLEONIC PORTABLE WARGAME rules. These are currently in the very early stages of development, and I hope to publish them at some time in the future. In the meantime I recommend that anyone interested in using my PORTABLE WARGAME rules for other periods should read Ross Mac's excellent battle report.

  1. Bob. Ross's SYW game report is very interesting. As I own a few SYW & Napoleonic figures I for one would be very interested in seeing PW rules for both as I'm sure would other users.

    1. Maudlin Jack Tar,

      I suspect that Ross's SYW version is closer to publication than my Napoleonic one is. Hopefully I will be able to begin work on it in the New Year.

      All the best,

      Bob

    3. Ross Mac,

      Not even on your blog? That is a pity!

  2. I am on a "naval train of thought at the moment" but I will soon have a little more "Portable" thinking time. I definitely want to get into the action on this one and get a few games under my belt ;) I like teh way it seems to work across the ages :)

      I've been following your 'Hunt the Bismarck' blog entries with interest as I have always enjoyed naval wargaming. As to seeing some PW battle reports on your blog ... well that is a pleasure that I am looking forward to!

      All the best,
