The Guns of August

Morningstar Games, here in Savannah is going to be hosting some Great War gaming during August in honor of the 100th anniversary of the war's start. I'm not terribly sure about the itinerary, but Mikey and I are going to be playing some sort of land battle on Sunday the 3rd - he's got the models and rules. i'm just going to show up and push lead and roll dice. I'm going to bring out my Victory at Sea: Age of Dreadnoughts on August 23rd. Hopefully there will be a day of Wings of Glory in there as well.

Like a lot of you with a lot of games, I've bought and painted the minis, read the book but just never got around to putting it on the table. I'll try to get in a dry-run of V@S in the next week or two just as a rules refresher.

I'm sure there is going to be a lot of Great War gaming in the next six to twelve months - it is a very interesting period but a tough sell with a lot of folks. The short US involvement and its reputation as a trench-warfare infantry grind is tough to overcome. Hopefully, with ships and biplanes blasting eachother, we can create a bit more community interest!

I'll post more details as I get them.

  1. I did it myself in 28mm skirmish and enjoyed the painting more than the playing.
