Black powder on a pinboard

Post by Norm » Sun Nov 13, 2016 5:23 pm

Black Powder is usually associated with large tables. i am about to start a sequence of blog posts that essentially revolve around an AAR on a scenario played out on a pinboard. I will be using Kallistra ACW figures.

as a bit of fun while I get the game under way and the files ready, I have put together a 1 minute movie trailer.

Thanks, the AAR has now started.

I have started a video AAR of a Black Powder ACW game played out on a pinboard sized gaming area.

The first post has gone up today and daily there will be a video update as the game progresses. The video link section is halfway down the post.

The AAR is intend to show how the rules play out in a small area and also some game mechanics are explained for those not exposed the the rule set.

please note the videos are listed rather than public, so they are not searchable on YouTube, rather the viewer will need the links shown in the blog article.
