Gridded Naval Wargames book: Slow but steady progress

I had hoped to finish writing my latest book by now, but real life (and other non-wargaming diversions) have slowed my progress ... but not stopped it. With luck I should be able to fight and record a battle using my PORTABLE WARGAME: PRE-DREADNOUGHT rules over the forthcoming weekend for inclusion in the book. After that I need to do something similar for my MIMI AND TOUTOU GO FORTH rules and to write a chapter about how to develop and extend my rules for other historical periods, and another chapter about how to use my rules for coastal bombardment, coastal defence, and naval support for landings.

My revised timetable is to finish the book by the end of the month ... assuming that there are no more diversions!

  2. Bob,
    It certainly is a good thing to set a 'Finishing Date'- it tends to spur you on by volumes to getting things done. I received my 15mm Orcs on Tuesday with the prospect of having our first Fantasy game on the Sunday - managed to finish painting up all of the Army having based and Lacquered everything and adding Flags by 2:00pm Friday...two days way ahead of schedule - very pleased about that. Very much looking forward to your developments towards your Pre-Dreadnought rules and pictures of your battles over the May period. All the Best from Sydney- Australia. KEV.

    1. Kev Robertson,

      I always try to work to deadlines ... either externally-set or self-imposed. I have done so all of my working life, and it certainly helps me to get projects finished.

      Good luck with your wargame; I hope that your Orcs perform as well as they can.

      All the best,

      Bob

    2. Bob,
      I will be taking command of my Dwarfs - and my good friend Greg Mc will be the dreaded Orc general. Cheers. KEV.
