Give me the two you enjoy the most and the era you haven't gamed can be either they don't make figs for it , you don't have the figs yet or no one else wants to but you .

Mine are : 1) AWI
2) 19th Cent.Colonial
The one I want to game : Paraguayan War

AWI – by a wide margin for 1st place (for me) and then, probably, Old West. Haven't gamed? Harder, I'd have to go with haven't collected – and that would be the Vietnam conflict. Too close to home – just a year or two to young to have been draft eligible, know too many vets, too hard to replicate well on the table.

Now, best period to put no the table – that has to be the Seven Years War.

WW2 and Science Fiction.

Danish-German war of 1848-50. Too obscure for many and only a few miniatures ranges out there.

British Colonial (TSATF) & Ancients (DBA)

WW2 and ACW are favorites, but followed closely by Colonial and modern/zombie.

Not done yet probably 28mm SCi Fi.

myxemail03 Sep 2016 5:05 a.m. PST

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP03 Sep 2016 5:44 a.m. PST

Favorites Napoleonic c. 1809 and WWII c. 1942--famous, asymmetric and plenty of possible combinations.

The one I want to and (almost) never have is Barsoomian skirmish. I have lead, terrain, rules--and no opponents. Very sad.

Toy Soldier Green03 Sep 2016 6:18 a.m. PST

1. WW2
2. Fantasy

Odd: Steampunk

Knight of St John03 Sep 2016 6:20 a.m. PST

1) War of the Roses
2) Boer war (still painting the British and Australians).

Would love to do the Great seige of Malta but still waiting for Warlord Games to release more miniatures.

I was always interested in the Crimean War, amassed a lot of figures, painted a few. Never went further as no one in the club was interested and I would have to paint both sides.

95th Division Supporting Member of TMP03 Sep 2016 7:31 a.m. PST

AWI and ACW, followed closely by WWII
I"d like to try Boer War.

Timotheous04 Sep 2016 11:43 a.m. PST

Two favorites for me are 18th century horse and musket (anything in tricornes) and ancients (again using the broad church method to include dark ages and medieval).

Like to do: pirates-the perfect excuse to do narrative adventures, ship to ship combat, and swashbuckling action.

pessa0004 Sep 2016 10:16 p.m. PST

Interesting there's quite few colonials players/lovers.

It's something we play on-and-off, but it didn't know it was so popular generally.
