Wargaming Wednesday - Chainmail (1971) Revisited

Last Thursday I posted about a game of Chainmail (1971) that happened at Lake Geneva Games recently as a test run for next year's Gary Con IX.  The scenario used was The Battle for the Brown Hills and, being Gary Gygax Day, I thought it might be nifty to look back on a battle report written by Gary on that very scenario.  There have been a few blog posts elsewhere about it, so let's revisit those with the first being "The Battle for the Brown Hills: Chainmail Fantasy Rules" over on the Collector's Trove here.  Tons of pictures there from a recent Gary Con using a sand table and the same types of Elastolin 40mm minis Gary would have used back in the day.

Also, on, there's an article from earlier this year discussing "Gygax’s Legendarium: The Battle of Brown Hills" here.

Finally, on Vintage Wargaming from 2012, a full look at "Battle of Brown Hills: early Chainmail Battle Report by Gary Gygax" here.  And from the jazze1 YouTube channel, a video of a re-enactment of the event.  Enjoy!
