I updated my blog with a battle report on my first game using the Pig Wars rules with some figures I recently finished. I played this scenario solo to help me learn the rules. There are a good number of pictures which you can click to enlarge. I hope you enjoy.

First the link to the scenario setup information


Then the link to the actual battle I am calling "The Burning Farm"


Thanks for looking!

very nice. Great set of simple rules that captures the period well. Best played with as many players as you can cram around the game table (I've played as 1 of nearly 20 at a con and it was a blast).

Looks like a fun game. I like your paint job! The terrain looked quite functional. Pig Wars is a great little set of rules. Tod is planning on releasing a 2nd edition at some point. I also love that you used 1/72 scale. It's a favorite of mine. I have been slowly picking up a variety of Dark Age plastics to use with PW. You should (if you already haven't) post this over at the Pig Wars yahoo group. Everyone would love it!

****EDIT I see that you did post it there. Cool!

Thanks and please post anymore updates.
