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.

Richard Borg's Abaddon Deeply Discounted

I did a review of Richard Borg's Abaddon way back in December 2012. Amazon is now selling that game at a deeply discounted rate of $16.99. Because the seller is Prime, that means Prime members can get a copy with free shipping in two days.

If you like mechas you might like the miniatures. If so, this is a pretty good price. As for the game, well I rated it pretty well.

Of course, such a deeply discounted prices means that Toy Vault is unlikely to make any more expansions for this product. If they sell it, it will probably end up like Battlelore and change. So if you are going to buy it, go with the mindset that this is the last of the line.

About Me

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").
