Dale's Wargames

My blog about my wargaming activities. I collect a lot of 15mm miniatures for the American War of Independence and so collect a lot of rules for this period. I started miniatures with Napoleonics, so I have a number of armies in 6mm and 15mm figures for skirmishing. I have15mm WW II figures that I use for Flames of War, Memoir '44, and someday, Poor Bloody Infantry. Finally there is my on-again, off-again relationship with paper soldiers that I sometimes write about.

R3 Podcast Episode 02 Segment 06 Morale in Hail of Fire

This segment covers the morale mechanics, along with the hidden deployment rule in my on-going review of the company-level WW II miniature gaming rules Hail of Fire by Brandon Fraley of Retroboom Games.

Too Long Didn't Listen version: Morale rolls are simply unmodified rolls against a static target number, which is determined by the Quality attribute.

The hidden deployment rules are apparently not everyone's cup of tea, but it is what drew me to continue to play these rules. 6:28

Next Segment: Final segment, my ratings for the rules

Huachuca City, Arizona, United States
I am 50 yrs old now. I bought a house in Huachuca City, AZ (although I have a townhouse in Houston, TX and a small home in Tucson, AZ) working on a contract for "the next two years" that is going on five years now. To while away the hours I like to wargame -- with wooden, lead, and sometimes paper miniatures -- usually solo. Although I am a 'rules junkie', I almost always use rules of my own (I like to build upon others' ideas, but it seems like there is always something "missing" or "wrong").
