So, I’ve been fascinated by small scale skirmish wargames lately. Stuff like the ones in this excellent post. Why them?
Partly because a down-and-dirty infantry firefight is what I like in a story, having also read many small-unit action stories recently. Partly because it reminds me of XCOM, Fire Emblem, and other low-unit strategy games. And partly just because I can think of the figures more as individual characters than generic units.
