| The idea of wargaming comes from the childhood games of toy soldiers.
And that's just what it is: toy soldiers with sets of rules bases on math
and hazard. Wargames have been played since the second quarter of the 19th
century, when Prussian officers wanted to recreate the atmosphere of the
napoleonic wars. Later on, the famed writer Herbert George Wells wrote
a set of simple rules to use with toy soldiers, called "Little Wars".
My objectives for the moment are to post graphical information of period
troops (first up are the US marines), of the main characters in the campaign
(Only the US for now, though there are other countries), and of the terrain
that I have managed to build so far. As I progress, there will be additional
||The type of wargaming here is 25mm colonial. That is, the miniatures
are at a scale of 25mm (thus one miniature representing a man is 25mm high)
and the time period is the victorian colonial era. This means that you
will likely not see greek hopitles or space marines.
||On Miniatures and
of The Personas They Represent
This being a page devouted entirely to the miniature figurines. It
contains information on the different brands available, of the color schemes
used by the models, and of the different characters (Officers, explorers
and the like!) that exist within the campaign.
||On Terrain and Buildings
and of The Ways in which They were Constructed
This being a page devouted entirely to the crafts and excentricities
related to building scenery that is both cheap and durable.
||On simulations and of
the many rules that make them up
This being a page devouted entirely to the many rulesets availible for
recreating warfare in the victorian and edwardian ages.
