I just received a late Christmas present in the form of the 1979 book Wargame Tactics by Charles Grant. I am slowly building up a small collection of Old School Wargaming books and this is the latest edition. I started reading the introduction during my morning break at work today and have found that I agree with everything Mr. Grant says about studying the time period in which you are gaming and using the period specific tactics and formations. More on this later.
I spent all of last week cleaning out and re-arranging my computer/wargaming/junk room at home. I still have a little work to do, but it is now much cleaner and better arranged. I even have room for a small construction area where I can work on terrain pieces, buildings, and ships to augment my painted figures. "I love it when a plan comes together!"
