Veteran gamer and rules writer John Lambshead has teamed up with the legendary Rick Priestley, creator of Games Workshop's phenomenally successful Warhammer system, to create this essential guide for any would-be wargame designer or tinkerer. Rick and John give excellent advice on deciding what you want from a wargame and balancing 'realism' (be it in a historical or a fantasy/sci-fi context) with playability.

Interview: Rick Priestley
In Conversation with Rick Priestley - The Brains Behind Black Powder Introducing Rick: Rick Priestley is Games Workshop's creative director and games designer. Not much of a gaming nature passes through the Workshop gates without Rick's eyes passing over it. He was one of the original designers behind Warhammer, and his credits in the historical theatre include Warhammer Ancient Battles and Warmaster Ancients. Wargames Illustrated: Hi Rick, thanks for taking the time to talk to us. I know that Black Powder has been a project which has been bubbling around in the gaming background for some years now, a side project in comparison to your work for Games Workshop and Warhammer Historical, but I get the impression it's been very much a labour of love... Rick Priestley: Yes that's definitely the case. It actually grew up simply by playing games, and the initial idea actually came from Jervis Johnson [Games Workshop stalwart and another acclaimed games designer] with the rule set being written by myself and Jervis. Jervis came up with the original idea for the game. He started out by looking at my Warmaster game and he liked the rapid movement that he got from that, particularly because all the games we played were either round at John Stallard's, or more commonly round at Alan Perry's on a big table. Rick: No, nothing like that. Rick: And along the way we changed practically everything, as you do. Rick: It's interesting because wargaming does tend to split into two camps. Rick: It's a problem, but it's a problem you overcome with specific rules. Rick: You would have to change the movement rates and scale down. Rick: It's written in a fairly entertaining style. Rick: Yes, and then you roll a dice and you can get 1, 2 or 3 moves to attempt to achieve your aim. Rick: It's one of those things where you have to be a little bit wary. Rick: It's not a natural speed they move at. Rick: We didn't want to use successive moves because we didn't want to spend forever moving units of individually based 28mm soldiers around. Rick: No, it's not an introduction to wargaming at all. Rick: The break point is when the battalions start to be armed exclusively with muskets and warfare takes on a characteristic known as 'linear warfare'. Rick: Yes, I think it is. Rick: Well I have just helped finish the second edition Warhammer Ancient Battles manuscript. Thanks very much Rick.
