A wee nod to Ronald Brow and his 6mm Ming

Over at the NerdWargamer blog, Ronald has written up a nice little review of Irregular Wars, highlighting some of his favourite aspects of the game.

"The game simulates irregular warfare quite well. For such a simple game it had a lot under the hood. I missed this complexity until I played a test game between Dutch privateers and the Ming Chinese. The Dutch were riddled by disease after rolling on the logistics table. The Chinese had a few stragglers to the battlefield but nothing else bad happened. That is the thing about this game. Your beautifully painted forces that you planned out for weeks could not make it to the table. If you think about how expeditions to the new world reached their destination with half the company they set out with it makes sense. The pre game setup enriches the narrative and makes the game more enjoyable."

Very flattering indeed, I'd urge you to go and check out his blog!

What Ronald has also done, is build a great 6mm Ming army. Now readers of my blog will know that I have fallen head over heels in love with 6mm as a scale, and Ronald's Ming are just superb.
