The battle of Took’s Farm

I’ve been following the ‘Old school wargaming’ Yahoo group for a while and although they mostly stick to more traditional wargaming fare — Napoleonics and WWII and that sort of thing — once in a while I see some interesting ancient, medieval, and fantasy stuff.  Recently someone posted a link to their blog, with photos and some details of a game run using 1976 Mythical Earth minis (a line of Middle Earth style figures produced by Minifigs that just barely avoided blatant use of words that would incite the Tolkien estate).  Check out the vintage fantasy goodness here. (The rules mentioned, also circa 1976, are presumably unpublished house rules from the period.)

  1. Thanks for the mention.The rules are by Jim Duncan and were from the south East Of Scotland Wargames club based in Edinburgh Scotland.
    I had loads of these figures circa 1976 and have started rebuilding my armies from virtually scratch. Anyone with figures to sell from this range let me know.
    best wishes
