As with "A Rust Monster Ate My Sword," I plan to use this virtual space to share the materials I've created over the past three decades of gaming. (Well, technically that's two decades when it comes to wargames.) I also to hope to share the exploits of my miniature armies here - we'll just have to play that one by ear, though.
"Why 'A Hard Won Thing'?" you ask?
Well, it's because that basically describes any game I've won in the last 20 years. I love gaming with miniatures - constructing plans of battle, mulling over tactics, etc. - but when it comes to making those dice work for me, forget it. It's a real struggle for my little lead men to pull out a victory, thanks more to fickle Fortune than to any major tactical flaw.
In fact, I'm pretty certain I've not won a tabletop miniatures game in four or five years...
