Heretical Gaming is my blog about my gaming life; currently concentrating on a re-fight of the entire English Civil War, but with numerous discursions into battles from many different periods. The focus is on battle reports using a wide variety of rules, with the occasional rules review, book review and odd musing about the gaming and history. Most of the battles use 6mm-sized figures and vehicles, but occasionally 15mm and 28mm figures appear too.

Peninsular Campaign - Some Thoughts Thus Far

I've played eight campaign games now, plus a 'special' with Saalfeld re-set in the Iberian Peninsular.  The games have all been good - and some have been excellent, amongst the best games I've ever played. 

I do howeverbegin to question whether the campaign 'framing' has actually helped too much, I begin to think that it has been a slight obstacle, as it is added a (small) paperwork overhead for possibly little gain - the Grant and Asquith scenarios are fine 'as is'.  Furthermore, I can't remember actually having my decision making during the games affected at any point by the scenario being set in a campaign.

So, no hasty decisions, but I am considering ending the campaign and simply  continuing to play through the scenarios, and saving my campaigning for a real campaign.
