With the wisdom of meditation guru and author Michael Williams, you will be able to explore the different chakras and their part in completing a healthy, whole human being.

Gunpowder Period (Wargames Rules) – Hordes of Models and Buckets of Dice: Quick Play Rules

by Nigel Emsen

The design philosophy of the rule set provides a simple approach that can be used to play wargame battles irrespective of the figure scale (6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 25mm and even 1/32 scale) using your own current models and basing. This is so that you can use your current collection of figures.

There are many very good rule sets aimed at a specific period in the hobby providing a detailed simulation of warfare in the period. These rules have been designed to provide the player with changes based around the maneuver and management of their units. The rules have been deliberately designed to provide more options at the unit level, while presenting the dilemma to the player that they cannot do all of the traditional phases (shooting, moving, charging, reforming) of a turn with that specific unit.

The rules instead of using a traditional system of very distinct detailed weapon factors and micro-managed movement rates, provides a game framework that looks at the different units capabilities compared to that units opponents. This enables the player to apply their knowledge of the period to represent the way a specific unit, in your opinion performed historically.

These rules also do not use the IGUGO turn approach, but instead each action, (reform, charge, move and shoot) can be done in any sequence or times in a turn, which keeps both players engaged throughout a turn sequence. A unit has a limit of two actions in any turn. The players take it in turns to complete these actions by unit. This keeps players engaged all through the turn sequence.

Also the rules do not focus on detailed weapon factors and actions within a specific game turn time frame, but use the approach: Was the specific unit any better or worse on the battlefield for the period.

For example, All units could have used volley fire, but was this specific unit any better/worse at than anyone else? The rules manage this through a unit being given a selection of capabilities that are given to a unit.

All units break at the same point, regardless of if the unit is veteran, regular or militia. What is managed within the rule set is how quickly or slowly a unit reaches that point of failure.

Games can be played over a two-hour time limit and a scoring orientated to a historical battle or specific game objectives.

This approach in the rules, allows games from the end of the dominance of the Swiss Keil to the end of The Mahdist Wars in the Sudan.

Light Over Water

by Noelle Carle

Life in Little Cove is safe, familiar and sedate, until events an ocean away draw Sam Eliot and Alison Granger into a tightening spiral of tragedy, failure and betrayal. In April 1917 the United States enters the war in Europe. Sam and Alison are affected by the disintegration of their safe world as Sam enlists, only to experience a personal tragedy soon afterwards that affects his ability to cope as a soldier. Alison, the daughter of a doctor, remains at home in the Maine coastal village and becomes involved in a scandal that shakes her faith in God and humanity.
A fearless chaplain and a Lusitania survivor guide each of them through the difficulties they experience until an influenza epidemic sweeps the globe and nobody emerges undamaged.
Can faith survive in the darkness of a world at war and unspeakable loss? This story answers that question with assurance; there is light even in the filth of the trenches and the degradation of humanity’s darkest vices.

Hordes of Models and Buckets of Dice – Machine Guns and Ballot Boxes (Wargames Rules): Machine Guns and Ballot Boxes

by Nigel Emsen

The design philosophy of the rule set provides a simple approach that can be used to play games irrespective of the figure scale (6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 25mm and even 1/32 scale). This is so that you can use your current collection of figures without any changes. The rules focus on command and control as opposed to a traditional approach of distinct and detailed weapon factors. By taking a light, very broad-brush approach, large games can be played in a few hours. Also the rules allow for both skirmish and unit based games.
The rules allow games from the start of World War Two until present day warfare. Additionally the rules allow games for insurgent warfare. Examples being: The Indio-China Wars, Vietnam and the insurgent conflicts through the 1960s to the present day.
The rules introduce airborne/air assaults, helicopters and smoke bombardments.
Note:
-Where bases, unit(s) is mentioned in the rules this also means model(s) for skirmish games. The phrase is inter-changeable.
-Atleast one dice is always thrown and dice fractions are rounded up.



Hordes of Models and Buckets of Dice – Longbow and Lances (Wargames Rules): Quick Play Rules

by Nigel Emsen

The design philosophy of the rule set provides a simple approach that can be used to play wargame battles irrespective of the figure scale (6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 25mm and even 1/32 scale). This is so that you can use your current collection of figures without any changes. The rules focus on command and control as opposed to a traditional approach of distinct and detailed weapon factors. By taking a light, very broad-brush approach, large games can be played in a few hours.

The command and control elements are held at the unit level. Generals are represented as a staff team and are only used in the concept of a planning trait. You define the type of staff team at the start of the game and then this sets the type of strategy used by the units under that staff team.

You need to decide the unit’s capabilities relative to the norm for the period. If the unit is better at shooting than other units of the period, you may wish to give that unit shooting ability.
All units are assumed to be able to shoot. You do have the option to declare a unit as no shooting ability. This is where you decide that the unit is not effective for the period or may not have a range weapon.

The rules allow games from the use of the longbow by the Welsh until the end of the dominance of the Swiss Kiel.
