Back To My Roots

New year, new project, new focus on the core mission: Wargaming that is cheap, portable, storable, and fun.

We'll get into the nitty-gritty later on this week.  For now, here's our goal - put together a fun wargame that can fit completely within a fairly small box.  So let's see what box we have to work with.

The big box store sells small boxes that are just the right size for a ream of letter sized paper for just a couple bucks.  This blue number is about nine inches by 11 inches by 2 inches, and it fits into a slightly larger box...

...pretty snug.  The blue boxes will work great for a pair of matched armies, and I can use the rest of the space for a drop cloth battlemat, terrain, dice, and rules.

We're off to a great start.


  1. Good luck with this new project. I embarked on a similar one last year (and like most of my projects it carries froward into this one as well!). I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. :)

  2. Hey, thanks for stopping by. I've been a fan of your blog for a while and just now realized that I never formally followed it. Well, that's been corrected. Love that 15mm skirmish board you put together this past year. I'm looking to add a few of your ideas to my own arsenal.
