Over the last couple of weeks I've picked up a few new games and rules sets, and have pulled another couple out of the shelves with a view to expanding the range of rules I play. These are the miniatures rules I'm keen to give some table time this year.
1) Might of Arms. I love Lost Battles, Commands and Colors: Ancients does a job for me (though it's in New Zealand now which is a little inconvenient), I enjoy To the Strongest and have my own rules to work on, but I really want a dice and ruler ancients set that looks the part in 15mm (ie, not DBA!). I'm hoping that this might be it.
2) Armati. This is another dice and ruler affair I want to come back to. I was really put off Armati after joining the yahoo group way back when I first got the rules in 2006 or 2007. There were two camps on the yahoo group and each had a different interpretation on how to play a couple of things and these guys would get stuck into each other, often on a personal level, day after day, message after message, and couldn't let things rest. I still gave the game a shot but I couldn't be bothered with rubbish of that ilk filling my inbox and wasn't interested in asking noob rules questions in that kind of environment so I quit the group. Now might be a good time to try the rules again (but I'm not going back to the group!).
3) Shipwreck! These modern naval rules come highly recommended so I'm looking forward to getting them on deck. I will probably use counters for a start, but may end up going for some NavWar fleets later on depending on how enthusiastic I can get about painting them.
That's the plan, but there's many a slip between cup and lip, as they say...
