Jay's Wargaming Blog



Welcome to my wargames blog.

Up until recently the blog was all about solo wargaming, and that was reflected in the blog’s title. In the past few years though I’ve branched out into gaming with friends again, and also spend a fair bit of time playing computer wargames – particularly those developed by Richard Bodley Scott and his team (Pike & Shot, Sengoku Jidai and Field of Glory II).

In addition, I have been lucky enough to find a life-partner with whom to share this wonderful hobby.

I’ve also become interested in hex and grid based games, and plan to incorporate ideas pioneered by Richard Borg and others into my own developing rulesets. This is an ongoing interest which I hope to chart in these pages.

I’m not giving up solo gaming entirely, and will continue to publish articles around that area of interest. But it will no longer be my sole wargaming focus, so it seems appropriate to change the title of my blog accordingly.

Hopefully though I will continue to provide material that some fellow wargamers find  worth reading and discussing!

Happy Gaming!




  1. Great start, good luck with it. Like you I solo with DBA and HOTT although I’m more interested in collecting armies than gaming. I have to admit though it’s good to see the little guys in there natural setting – mixing it on a table now and again.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement George. I must admit that I’ve also tended to focus on collecting more than playing. That’s partly because it’s been difficult to find opponents locally who use the same rulesets. A big part of my motivation for this blog, and for developing solo ideas and techniques in general, is to address the problem by finding ways to get my little fellas out onto a battlefield rather than leave them hidden away in a drawer ;O)
