It was our wedding anniversary this weekend, so we got away from it all by going camping. Well, we stayed at a bed and breakfast for one night, so we could go out for a romantic meal, and then we went camping.
Whilst we like the odd walk, we don't go off on long hikes, and for us camping is really a chance to get away from it all, unwind and do bugger all. Catherine likes to go fishing. I wander around taking photos. And we read a lot and drink tea.
This time I thought that I'd try some gaming. After all, I'd put together a 9" square gaming area with terrain, and shown that it was possible to fight battles on it. So I lobbed two armies, the terrain and a few other bits and pieces in a box, and took them with me.
Here's our campsite. It's simple but functional, and meets our needs for a couple of nights away
And here is portable wargaming at its finest. Well, nearly. The board on my lap is probably too big, but is just a plastic box-lid I grabbed on the way out of the door. Really I need to find one of those lap trays that were all the rage a few years ago.
Anyway, on the board you can see two six-element Liberation armies ready for a fight using the cut-down version of my Liberated Hordes rules. Because I decided that with two days of portable wargaming to be had I could justify trying a mini-campaign. The results will be in my next post.
