Well this is it, folks – the Season One finale of Little Wars TV and we went all out! We used 2000 miniatures and five separate tables to refight not just a single battle, but the entire Marengo campaign!

Click here for our final full episode of the year:


This season has been a blast, and planning is well underway for season two. Don't worry too much about withdrawal symptoms, though, as we plan to be posting regular short-form, hobby-related content in the off-season to come. Be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and subscribe on YouTube so you don't miss a thing!

Very good. I enjoyed that very much.

Thanks for posting. It was interesting to see how a campaign was handled in short time-period.

The Snappy Nappy rules by Russ Lockwood are very well suited for those types of mini-campaigns. There's a great blog called "Blunders on the Danube" where they also do large scale Snappy Nappy campaigns. Highly recommended reading material!

I second that!
Looks to be a heck of a good group to wargame with and push interest of the hobbie.

Good stuff (all season).

Ran across you guys earlier and then plain ol' forgot about you. Now checked everything out even though I was supposed to be renovating he house.

Ahyhoo, subscribed to the channel and will soon try to locate the FB page to like as well.

Eagerly awaiting for the next season!

I really enjoy your work. Thanks.

Thanks for the Snappy Nappy mention (I created the rules). LWTV reviewed SN. I believe they are using their variant of SN for this campaign. You can find their variant for download on their website.

For those interested, we are holding a Snappy Nappy 1814 Campaign in a Day on Sunday April 28 at the Portal, 60 Hilliard Rd., in Manchester, CT (Hartford, CT) starting at 10:30am and ending at 5pm. It has 14 tables and room for 22 players (13 signed up and 2 tentative). If you are in the area, stop by -- if there's a command open, it's yours.

Great video!

Thanks for sharing that video. That looked like and very enjoyable and instructive game/campaign.
