    Yesterday we played a Rapid Fire game in the Malaya campaign, the Battle of Slim River. There is a full report and pics on the blog:

    Nice pics, thanks for taking the time to share.
    I see you have a use for those red token things from em4!

    Quick question… I base my vehicles too, but many people don’t, why is it you do?

    Thanks Mike, I am glad you enjoyed the AAR. Thanks for reminding me where those tokens had come from, I had forgotten! Ha ha. We also use the yellow ones for light damage on vehicles. They fit nicely on top of 15mm figures.

    I base my reasons for a few reasons, one is storage, the base stops them getting chipped when in a box together. Another reason is that it gives an ‘accurate in game terms’ footprint of the vehicle or unit (Rapid Fire has a vehicle ratio of 1:5). If you take the base as being the vehicle, then there are no arguments about if something is in range or not due to the straight edges. Also, I base all my figures, so an un-based vehicle is somewhat shorter than the figures, who are all standing on 2mm high ‘mounds’. t brings everything up to the same height. I also think that a based vehicle looks more like a ‘gaming piece’ than a ‘toy’, but that is a personal preference.

    And cue a discussion about to base or not to base… 😉

    I am stealing this to turn it into a FOW scenario  for next Sundays game.  My 15mm Japanese will attack down the road and I’ll see if Kenneths Brits/Indians can hold them. I’ll try to post Pics on my Facebook page.

    Cheers guys,

    @rod, we were talking about Stalingrad whilst playing this Saturday. It’s there and waiting. I think it may have to be a weekend game though. Keep an eye out as I am wanting to play it as well! Soon, I promise!

    @KB, steal away and post pictures if you can! I’d love to see your take on the game.
