The Flare Path: In Brine

It's only a matter of time. At some point during the coming week someone is going to ask me to recommend a Battle of Jutland wargame. Wafted towards WWI's most costly and consequential naval engagement by the squall of centennial documentaries and articles, the enquirer will request the name of a realistic, atmospheric and affordable simulation of the scrap known to Germans as the Battle…

The Flare Path: Rules The Waves

I am the very model of a contented desktop Admiral, I've information financial, political, and tactical, I grow my navy patiently to echo fights historical, Not Tsushima or Jutland, but battles roughly comparable; I mull over decisions with implications international, And design my own ships using rules quite mathematical; Exposed to a wargame this deep, fresh, and dreadnoughtical, It would be profoundly criminal not to…

The Flare Path: Dreadnoughts And Droid Thoughts

Though my Battle-of-Jutland-through-the-eyes-of-a-ship's-cat war movie remains unfunded, untitled and largely unwritten, I have mentally sketched out the final scene. EXT. FIRTH OF FORTH. DAWN.

They say the moment he hears anything resembling a request, he wraps the world in a snow-white alpaca fleece and heads for the hills. Some sap has obviously been badgering him, because we haven't seen our wingtips in forty minutes. Somewhere down there is a little mining town called Cascada Negra. If we don't…

The Flare Path: Mustangled Up In Blue

You can tell a lot about a person from their favourite WW2 fighter. Hawker Hurricane admirers are hardworking, realistic, and loyal. Bf 109 fans are contrary and meticulous. Fiat Freccia fiends are Italian. Westland Whirlwind worshippers are prone to melancholy, and often smell faintly of aniseed. Mustang devotees are bold, impatient and have a very low tolerance for silly Flare Path introductions that claim you…

The Flare Path: Pretty Pleas

If I was to be run-over and killed by a bus tomorrow, all the sims and wargames on my 'back end of a bus' list might never get covered on RPS. That thought keeps me awake at nights (even though recent Hampshire County Council cuts mean my chance of being run down by public transport is now virtually nil). What's to be done? Well, I…
