Playtests: Sarantaporo 1912 (Balkan Wars), Chorrillos & Miraflores 1881 (War of the Pacific), Spotsylvania 1864 (ACW)

It's been a fruitful couple of weeks for playtesting and refining three very different scenarios old and new, spanning half a century.



I kicked off with the first of Konstantinos Travlos's epic collection of 15 scenarios for the Balkan Wars of 1912-1913. (You can find all these draft scenarios, and others he has created for other wars, on his Leadhead, PhD blog, as well as in the files of the BBB Yahoo group.) I've invested the princely sum of £150 in a custom-painted Greek 1912 army from Irregular Miniatures, whose services I cannot recommend highly enough. We blooded them with their first outing against my Ottoman Turks at Sarantaporo.
