    An AAR of a game played a few nights ago with the Warlord Black Powder ruleset. A great game that I thoroughly enjoyed. Details can be found below:

    A very nice AAR, well done the Croats!. Did you use centimetres for movement and ranges with your 10mm soldiers?.

    That looks really nice. I was surprised that you could use Black powder for a ‘smaller’ game’ I always thought it was for big engagements only. You say you are on 20mm bases. I have ACW on

    40mm (x 20) bases – would that matter?

    From what I understand  Norm as long as all the figures are based alike it shouldn’t matter what size the bases (frontage)

    I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel

    “Did you use centimetres for movement and ranges with your 10mm soldiers?.”

    Hi Paul, yep just used centimetres instead of inches, which works nicely IMHO.

    “40mm (x 20) bases – would that matter?”

    Hi Norm, 40mm x 20mm should be fine as that’s what we used and I use as my standard basing for BP. BP does work well for smaller actions, which is very useful, as not all battles were huge affairs. Also very handy for those ‘coffee table’ size games such as this one.
