Other people's Portable Wargame reports: A plethora of new stuff!

My sister's recent death and her funeral have rather preoccupied me of late, and it was only yesterday that I realised quite how many players had written reports on the PORTABLE WARGAME Facebook page. These include Mark Cordone's Battle of Leipzig project, for which he has created a special playing board ...

... as well as painted several armies made up from replacement figures for the game of RISK.

At the same time, Slorm Chaplain has been using a slightly tweaked version of Alan Saunders' ECW rules from the PORTABLE PIKE & SHOT WARGAME book to fight a Horse & Musket battle ...

... and Auston Jeff Butler has been fighting an Alien Bugs vs Neo-Soviet Red Army Brigade battle in the irradiated wastes of Tibet!

Finally, Barry Carter has fought a Romans vs. Britons battle ...

... and a battle from the Russian Civil War using the rules.

The sheer range of battles being fought using versions of the PORTABLE WARGAME rules is staggering, and I am extremely pleased to see people getting so much fun from their wargaming!

  1. Good stuff, I will be coming back round to this system soon! Napoleonic in particular has my attention ;) Looking forwards to dipping into that volume of the Portable Wargame with the drawing in of dark nights ;)

    1. Geordie an Exiled FoG,

      I hope that you have seen today’s blog post and gone on to read the battle reports on the PW Facebook page. I think that they will inspire you.

      All the best,


    2. Cheers Bob will do, I will also drop by the FB page, thanks for the tip

    3. Geordie an Exiled FoG,
